Media & Compounds


Glass Bead

Glass bead blasting is an effective and proven process used in mass finishing.   Bead blasting produces a smoother and brighter finish compared to angular abrasives.  Through bead blasting, there is minimal to no dimensional change to metal surface. Glass bead blasting will not leave embedded contaminates or residue and can improve corrosive resistance.

Aluminum Oxide800

Aluminum Oxide

Aluminum Oxide is fused alumina grains which are extremely hard and angular, achieving fast cutting action for mass finishing.  Grit sizes are precisely screened for “specification use”, which may be reclaimed many times providing an economical solution for your blasting needs


Polishing Media

Type of ceramic media used specifically to polish and brighten your parts.  These medias can be manufactured in extremely small sizes to handle intricate parts to accomplish your desired result

Ceramic Media800

Ceramic Media

Created in various sizes, shapes, cut capabilities, and harnesses to achieve your desired result for mass finishing.  Our no-charge quality lab along with our Engineering Team will analyze your parts, and apply the appropriate media to allow for reproducible results in the most economical way.


Corn Cob

A cost effective biodegradable material, used as both a tumbling and vibratory media to absorb dirt and oils and dry parts, without affecting the surface of the parts. Corn Cob can also act as a burnishing media and come in various grit sizes.


Plastic Media

Recommended for general metal removal or pre-plated finishing and polishing. Plastic media is normally used for softer metals, such as brass and aluminum, and will result in a very smooth “matte” type finish.


Stainless Steel Media

Used for polishing and burnishing. This media has substantial weight (heavier than carbon steel) which exerts added pressure and increased resistance to effectively reduce finishing time.  Various shapes and sizes are available to develop the ideal process for your specific parts.


Steel Shot

The use of steel shot blasting for surface preparation can provide effective surface preparation without the need for harsh chemicals or other potentially hazardous materials.  You may be able to reduce surface preparation time by as much as 75 percent, while providing substantial labor cost savings.  Steel shot can also remove scale and other surface debris without damaging or removing the underlying metal while promoting adhesion of pain, epoxy, and metal coatings.


Zirconia Blasting Beads (Zirblast)

Zirblast ceramic beads are used as blasting media for blast cleaning and surface preparation applications. Zirblast beads are durable blasting media that offer effective cleaning power with no surface contamination to deliver a smooth satin finish. They are suitable for blasting the surface of all kinds of steel, aluminum and other non-ferrous alloys to remove oxide, rust, sand, coatings and burrs.  Zirblast has been proven to last up to 10-15 times longer than standard glass bead due to its strength profile providing significant cost savings and high productivity.



Mass finishing requires specific chemical compounds to be used in conjunction with the appropriate media to achieve your desired result.  Whether you are looking for rust prevention, heavy detergents, or just want to get a brighter more esthetic result we can provide the solution.  Our no charge quality lab and Engineering Team are available to apply the most cost effective solution for your compound needs.

We're proud to offer the most efficient, long-lasting ceramic media and other tumbling products to meet the most advanced finishing requirements of today's market.

Our long-standing agreements with the industry's leading suppliers means our customers can rest assured that they're getting the best product at the best value.
