Carbon Cut Wire



  • A very consistent and precise size and shape metallic abrasive media
  • Best suited for the most stringent peening applications because of durability, hardness, and consistency of size and shape
  • Manufactured by cutting carbon wire into lengths equal to the wire diameter which produces a much more consistent size and shape product than cast steel shot
  • Generally specified only in very stringent shot peening applications
  • Carbon cut wire is extremely hard, durable and, after conditioning, produces a very consistent round shape


  • Typical hardness 42-56 Rockwell C
  • 7.3-7.6 grams/cubic centimeter specific gravity
  • Available In conformance to AMS and other peening specifications
