GLASS BEADS

Glass_Beads-2SyncoLite™ Glass Beads are an established blasting media for air assisted blasting applications using pressure induction, suction and wet blasting principles and is used for cleaning, conditioning or peening metallic surfaces. SyncoLite™ is manufactured from high‐grade crushed and sized glass cullet, which is melted to a spherical shape and annealed for uniform and controlled internal stresses and superior fracture resistance.These transparent spheres which are non abrasive in nature function without any damage to or dimensional change in the surface of the object embedment, contamination or pick‐up. Depending on the selection of size and operating parameters, SyncoLite™ achieves desired surface finish and texture from fine matte to bright satin.

Decorative and special effects are achieved by using masking stencils and blasting exposed surfaces with SyncoLite™. Critically tolerant objects, dies, moulds, component etc. can be cleaned, deburred, textured without removing any base metal, ensuring the sanctity of the critical tolerances due to the intrinsic quality of Syncolite glass beads. In addition, the inherent strength of glass beads allows it to survive multiple impacts, making it extremely suitable for use in closed cycle blasting equipment fitted with recycling facilities. Being chemically inert, and non‐toxic, SyncoLite™ Glass Beads do not leave any unwanted or ferrous residue on blasted surfaces. Spent media which is not contaminated is environmentally harmless.

COPPER SLAG

Copper_SlagSyncoslag™ is a low cost expendable media suited for impact blast cleaning in open, due to its low cost and silica free nature ensuring no health hazard linked to the use of silica sand. Its sharp, hard cutting edges ensure a fast cleaning action and excellent surface profile preparation. It is one of the most economical abrasives media available for cleaning steel surfaces where recovery and reuse are not practical like in case of shapes during maintenance, tank forms, pipe lines and other large structures.

Syncoslag™ is typically used for removal of mill scale, rust, paint layers, dirt and old coating; and creation of deep surface profiles or required for superior adhesion of the subsequent coatings. It can also be used as an additive for floor hardening.


GARNETS

GarnetsSyncgar™ is derived from mined Almandine mineral deposits which is the heaviest and hardest of the all garnet types, resulting in an ideal abrasive grain for blasting applications. Syncgar™ has sub angular shape leading to extremely fast cutting rates resulting in lower abrasive consumption. The high specific gravity of Syncgar™ , and its low breakdown rate, results in significantly reduced dust levels, ensuring good operator visibility and lesser risk to personnel or environmental contamination in surrounding areas when compared with other expendable minerallic abrasive media.

The low consumption rate and recyclability up to 5 times reduces the volume of waste for disposal. Being a naturally occurring mineral it is non-polluting to the environment. Syncgar™ can be used for preparation of steel and non ferrous metal surfaces prior to coating, as cutting media for water jet cutting machines, engraving of stone and glass, cleaning of concrete and brickwork, cleaning of components in contamination sensitive areas, and bonded and coated abrasives.


ZINC CUT WIRE SHOTS

SyncZinc™ Shot is a soft metallic shot, used with preference in the die‐casting and gravity casting industries for deburring and deflashing of aluminum and zinc alloy castings. SyncZinc™ Shot is an ideal abrasive for blasting corrosion resistant steels and non ferrous products, where the risk of ferrous contamination to the surface is not acceptable. SyncZinc™ Shot is manufactured from virtually pure zinc. This enables it to be used in applications where there is a high risk of explosion if an aluminum shot were to be used.

This risk is typically manifested when deflashing aluminum components with aluminum shots. The dust generated can lead to an explosive atmosphere as the Aluminum shots are about 10 times more explosive than Zinc Shot, therefore the use of Zinc Shot greatly reduces the risk of explosion. Also,SyncZinc™ Shot is about 2.5 times denser than aluminum shot making it a far superior media for deflashing or deburring of components that would ordinarily not be deflashed or deburred adequately with aluminum shots. Its high density enables it to remove burrs up to 40% in size of the shot’s diameter. Zinc Shot removes burrs 0.5mm thick, whilst an equivalently sized aluminum shot will remove a burr only 0.3 mm thick.


SYNCONOX TM  (STAINLESS STEEL HIGH CHROME/NICKLE SHOT)

Stainless Steel Shot is one of the longest lasting most durable abrasives available. Produced from 300 Series Cast Stainless Steel, Stainless Steel Shots provide repeatable, consistent performance for thousands of cycles, a critical factor when used for shot peening purposes. Because of continuous impacting during use, Synconox™ shots work hardens itself, its internal structure changes from austenitic to martensite. This transformation enables SynconoxTM Shots to withstand up to 5000 impacts. As produced,Synconox™ Shots has a hardness of approx. 220 HV. With continuous use, the hardness will increase to approx. 530 HV after 2000 cycles.

Due to its exceptionally low break down rate, virtually no dust is produced from the abrasive itself. The non brittle nature and high density of Synconox™ Shots, results in high impact energies to the work piece resulting into faster cleaning rates.Synconox™ shots are used for applications where residue on the blasted component is undesirable and/or when a very bright surface finish is required. It will leave no ferrous residue or staining on the work piece. Synconox™ shots are widely used on magnesium, aluminum, nickel and chromium based alloy components and other non-ferrous parts.


SYNCZIRTM (CERAMIC BEADS: ZIRCONIA /ZIR SHOTS)

Synczir™ beads are generally used for surface cleaning of rubber and plastic moulds, castings, boiler and heat exchanger parts. It is also used for the peening and peen forming of components, particularly in the aerospace industry. Synczir™ when used for peening are superior to traditional peening media, like steel shots and glass beads, as it can achieve similar peening intensities with lower surface roughness. SynczirTM can be used in peening applications in the place of steel shots where ferrous contamination is not acceptable.

The higher density of ceramic beads ensures peening intensities equal to those obtainable with glass beads at a reduced abrasive velocity. Synczir™ thus have a far less abrasive breakdown and dust generation which in turn results in a cleaner working environment and better operator visibility. Synczir™ narrow particle size distribution coupled with low breakdown rates up to 15:1 as compared to glass beads enables repeatable, consistent result to be achieved, which is a critical consideration when selecting a media for peening application. Typical applications include mould cleaning, deburring delicate items, peening and stress relieving, deburring plastic components and paint removal.

 

CUT WIRE SHOTS

Syncut™ is a popular alternative to cast steel abrasives, and finds specific applications where cast materials do not offer adequate performance. This is specifically so for peening applications where a higher level of abrasive hardness and uniformity of size is desirable or when components to be peened have a high level of inherent hardness. In order to achieve repeatable peening results, the ideal peening media should contain particles of identical size, shape, hardness and density. Syncut™ are manufactured from wire strand, cut to lengths equal to its diameter virtually identical particles in size, shape, hardness and density and thus a media ideally suited for peening purposes.

Syncut™ Carbon Steel and Cut Wire Stainless Steel are supplied in 3 forms depending on the requirements of the application i.e.

(A) As Cut (cylindrical with sharp edges),

(B) Partially Conditioned (corners rounded off)

(C) Fully Conditioned (spherical).

Syncut™ in Stainless Steel work hardens with use, resulting in to an extremely long abrasive life span. The almost uniform size range of the Syncut™ particles ensures consistent and repeatable results are achieved when used for surface finishing and treatment of metallic materials. Syncut™ Carbon Steel shots are very versatile and durable when compared to cast steel abrasives, due to virtually no internal flaws, i.e. porosity, shrinkage, cracks etc. Its higher density also offers a higher blast impact when compared with cast steel abrasives.

Syncut™ stainless Steel shots find applications in cleaning, polishing stainless steel rods, pipes and nonferrous die‐cast castings (such as aluminum and magnesium).Syncut™ stainless steel shots are also used for cleaning magnetic parts when ferrous residues are not acceptable. Cut Wire Aluminum and Zinc are predominantly used for sand, stain and burr removal and to produce a glossy finish on components. It also used in wheel blast applications where a ‘soft impact’ is desired during the blasting process.
