Sandblasting/Black Slag

Black Slag

Black Shot
Black shot is a blend of water quenched coal slag and air cooled copper slag abrasive. Black Shot nickel slag is a by-product left over from the operation of coper smelters and is unsurpassed in its toughness, and durability. It’s angular shape and consistent sizing makes it particularly effective in attacking rust and paint leaving behind an excellent finish for coatings to adhere to, and done in less time than conventional sands.

Black Shot nickel slag is competitively priced. Customers will enjoy additional price advantages due to Canadian-dollar-denominated production costs.

Technical / Safety
• MDOT (Michigan Department of Transport) approved
• CARB (California Air Resources Board) approved
• Less than 0.1% free silica
• Modern screening technology provides even more consistent material.
• Now available with Blastox® lead abatement blast additive.

Production / Usage
Compared to silica, Black Shot nickel slag offers better uniformity, density, hardness, and contains less than 0.1% free silica. For best productivity, minimum 100 psi at the nozzle is recommended.

Faster Cutting Action

Lower Dusting

Heavier Product

Emission Containment

Low Draw of Moisture

Can Be Used In Existing Equipment


less time needed on the job = savings on labour

better visibility = better productivity, maximized blast pattern

faster falling dust  = smaller fall-out area

smaller cleanup area is needed = lower set-up and clean-up costs

better flowing through media valves = lower chance of equipment clogging causing work slowdown or stoppage

no extra cost incurred to you and no down time

less chance of coatings failure
