Metaltec’s cast steel shot is manufactured to SAE J2175 specificationand is available in sizes ranging from S-780 through S-70.

Metaltec’s cast steel shot has a unique bainite microstructure.Its lower carbon and higher manganese chemical compositionresults in a product that has longer life.Metaltec’s shot meets SAE hardness specifications as-cast and does notrequire the additional tempering found with the Martensitic process.By omitting this tempering process, Metaltec’s steel shot will be freeof micro cracks and will wear at a controlled rate while maintaining itsoverall shape and uniformity….giving it SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE.
