Selecting the Correct Blast Media

With the focus being long term corrosion prevention on a variety of substrates ranging from Concrete, Steel, or some of the exotics such as 316L Stainless Steel or bronze alloys, it is important to ensure the correct profile is achieved with consideration for galvanic reactions found between the use of steel shot on a stainless steel surface.
