Stainless Steel Tumbling Media

Stainless steel tumbling media is known for its wear resistance, and in most instances lasts much longer than ceramic, plastic, and bio-based vibratory media. It performs a variety of finishing operations, often in one step, without specialized or dedicated equipment, reducing processing times. The use of stainless steel greatly reduces the risk of corrosion in your mass finishing applications.

Finishing Applications for Stainless Steel Tumbling Media

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

Steel Tumbling Media Composition Options:

  • Stainless Steel – ideal applications include corrosion-sensitive steel. Recomended to use when rust-free is essential. Stainless steel also reduces the amount of chemistry needed in most processes.
  • Carbon Steel – typically used in burnishing applications but can also provide a light edge break or deflashing.
