Which type of abrasive blasting media is suitable for preparing the more “exotic” stainless steels, such as Inconel or Monel?

Selected Answers

From Warren Graves of Warren Graves Coating Consultant inc on January 25, 2019:
I am only commenting on the description given in the question of Inconel and Monel as being exotic stainless steels. Inconel has a maximum of 11% Fe and Monel has a maximum of 2.5% Fe. These are special metal alloys, not stainless steels. Both products are usually used in high temperature, and/or aggressive environments in place of stainless steel or other metals.
