FERROSAD

Low carbon steel abrasive

Low carbon steel abrasive is excep­tio­nally long-lasting and extremely durable because it is vir­tually crack-free. Due to the micro­st­ructure and material pro­perties achieved directly after gra­nu­lation, the gra­nules do not need to be sub­jected to sub­se­quent heat tre­atment. On the other hand, most high carbon steel abra­sives develop surface cracks during the ato­mi­sation process, which is caused by the high carbon content and the resulting high level of hardness. During the heat tre­atment required for this reason, the existing cracks can become even larger.

Our quality gua­rantee
with che­mical analysis.

Made in Germany

Our company pro­cesses are cer­tified according to ISO 9001. The meti­cu­lously coor­di­nated pro­cesses are checked by regular internal and external audits. These also include regular che­mical ana­lyses.
The objective of this process is con­stant, homo­ge­neous product quality. More infor­mation …

Micro-
structure:
The low-carbon steel abrasive is pro­duced from high-quality steel scrap. Due to its low carbon content and its purity with regard to harmful ele­ments such as phos­phorus and sulphur, a pre­do­mi­nantly bainitic structure is formed after the ato­mi­sation process, which has an optimum com­bi­nation of hardness and toughness and is effi­cient, resistant and durable in operation.
Dura­bility:
Due to these pro­perties, namely the material structure and the fact that the surface is largely free of cracks, many users have been able to reduce con­sumption signi­fi­cantly com­pared to other metallic abra­sives, in some cases by more than 20%.
Delivery

Packed in PE bags of 20 kg each. The shipment is made on Euro pallets in units of 1000 kg (50 bags @ 20 kg). The pallet is pro­tected with a card­board box and shrink-wrap foil. Or in1000 kg BigBag on Euro pallet pro­tected by shrink-wrap.
