Rigorous validation of Product:
Ervin Amasteel is trusted by Aerospace manufacturers and 1st Tier suppliers to the industry world-wide because of our adherence to obligatory industry standards. Our own internal upper and lower specifications are more demanding than these, and we check production standards thoroughly to ensure compliance and traceability. Production processes are rigorously managed to assure compliance with size, hardness, chemistry, shape and defect criteria, and to ensure that the product as supplied meets AMS-S-13165 and AMS-2431/1E & 2E.

Reduced Process Costs:
In objective comparative trials carried out in the Ervin laboratory, Amasteel abrasive has been shown repeatedly to outperform all other equivalent products in terms of the energy that it transmits to the target surface. So it peens more effectively, and our customers can run their process faster.

Reduced Power Consumption:
In objective comparative trials carried out in the Ervin laboratory, Amasteel abrasive blast media outperforms other equivalent products by its ability to continue rebounding within the blast machine where competitor material has turned to dust. So for each throw of the wheel, the abrasive makes more contact and works harder. The potential power savings can be significant when compared with other peening media.

Reduced Peening Shot Consumption:
Ervin Amasteel has been perfecting the process for the production of steel shot for many decades. The durability of our product is tested and confirmed daily across the world. So Customers typically find that it lasts longer and they benefit from a reduction in the volume consumed in their processes.

Improved Peening Performance:
Ervin Amasteel shot offers consistent and durable performance for the most demanding Aerospace shot peening applications, thanks to the uniform, tempered martensitic structure of the product which results from Ervin’s water-quenched hardening and tempering processes. The Ervin process is simply a better way to make steel shot abrasive.
