Revolutionary New Threading Design
Santa Cruz developed a unique thread pattern designed to eliminate the binding & permanent seizing of the screw-together parts. The anodizing of the threaded surfaces help to eliminate “galling”. Galling is a form of surface damage arising between two sliding metals in contact with one another. Santa Cruz also invented the 7-Catch Design which allows the user to easily adjoin the parts with very little effort.
Revolutionary New Tooth Design
Sharp-edged teeth are not the best approach. Sharp edge teeth will dull and are release burrs & tiny flakes of aluminum into your smoking blend. Sharp edged teeth take a lot of initial torque to start turning. This initial pressure will force the teeth to bend and wear at the base, causing metal fatigue. This results in the eventual breakage of the tooth.
The teeth of a Santa Cruz Shredder are able to take extreme use. They’re twice as strong as other grinder's teeth. They will never dull or release burrs/flakes of aluminum. Comparable grinders cut once letting bb-sized chunks pass thru the holes without further grinding. The teeth are designed to cut both ways. There are clearances on both sides of the teeth, causing it to fluff, but never slice or smash.
The “knurled” grip of a Santa Cruz Shredder is much more pronounced than other grinders, improving hand and finger grip. You can see the superior grip pattern as well as feel how much easier it is to turn. This extremely grippable lid makes it that much easier to rotate the grinder, lowering the torque necessary to use our product
Santa Cruz Shredders uses the highest quality magnets in the world, Neodymium Diametrically Magnetized Cylindrical Rare Earth Magnets. The triple layer Nickel-Copper-Nickel coat creates maximum durability and protection against damage & corrosion. This provides a reliable lid closure system that prevents your tobacco from drying out, accidental spillage, and escaping odors. They are ISO Certified and guaranteed for life!
Santa Cruz Shredders use T304 Micronic Precision Woven Non-Fraying Stainless Steel Screens. This is the highest micron size of any grinder on the market. Other grinder companies use lower micron sizes (larger openings) to create the appearance they’re working by letting more “stuff” filter through, but they’re actually allowing more impurities to pass into your final pollen compartment.
Additionally, Santa Cruz Shredders' screens are secured using a “drum-skintight” screen capturing design. This pulls the screen tight in all direction before permanently locking into place. The screen will not become loose, stretch or warp.
Santa Cruz Shredders are truly scratch resistant, using aerospace anodizing techniques for protection. Anodizing is an electrolytic passivation process use to create a strong protective coating for aluminum that prevents corrosion, wear resistance, and “galling” (failing) of threaded parts. Anodizing changes the microscopic texture of the surface and changes the crystal structure of the aluminum near the surface. It not only bonds to the surface, but actually molecularly becomes the new surface.
The Santa Cruz Shredder is the only grinder cleaned with strict medical-grade ultrasonic procedures. Santa Cruz uses high frequency sound waves and a medical-grade solution to remove all contaminates, including dust, dirt, grease, fingerprints, toxic machine lubricants & toxic polishing compounds. This is the same process used to disinfect medical instruments before surgical procedures.
