Ceramic Tumbling Media

Ceramic tumbling media is a general all-purpose vibratory tumbling media; available in a wide variety of sizes, cutting actions, compositions, and shapes. Standard and custom formula blends available depending on the metal, contaminants and desired finish. Ceramic media can provide a longer lasting alternative to some plastic media and reducing the waste created in the process. Ideal for aerospace, automotive, jewelry, piping, fittings, 3D printing, tooling, medical/dental, and other industries.

Finishing Applications for Ceramic Tumbling Media

Mass finishing, deburring, deflashing, polishing, burnishing, fast metal removal, surface improvement, radiusing, and cosmetic finishing.

Shape & Size Options:

Standard shapes & sizes available, including but not limited to:

  • Angle Cut Cylinders, Triangles and Stars
  • Cones
  • Wedges
  • Pyramids
  • Tetrahedrons
  • Ellipses

Ceramic Tumbler Media Composition Options:

  • Non-abrasive – long lasting media recommended for brightening, burnishing, polishing, and light deburring.
  • Mild/Medium Cut – moderately long lasting media options that usually contain silicon carbide or aluminum oxide to provide some metal removing for surface finishing applications.
  • Fast Cut – contains higher concentrated amounts of abrasive for fast and efficient removal of heavy scale, flash and burrs.
  • Specialty Abrasives – unique formulas designed for specific applications that usually contain silicon carbide, zirconia or aluminum oxide.

Each type of cutting ability has many composition formulas available. Contact our team for special compositions.
