Vapour blasting, also known as wet blasting, is rapidly becoming the number one choice for applications requiring the highest quality of surface finish.
This is a dust free process that simultaneously degreases & blast cleans to produce a 'softer' finish.
Advantages of Vapour Blasting Include:
Vixen's Aquablast range of wet blasting machines use the vapour blasting process to simultaneously degrease and blast industrial components, of many different shapes and sizes.
The aggressiveness of dry grit and bead blasting are shown in the first two illustrations which demonstrate the severe 90° ricochet that occurs when using these methods.
The third illustration shows the gentler, but just as effective, vapour blasting method. The ricochet of media is reduced due to the cushioning from the water; the angle of the media is changed producing a lapping effect travelling across the surface, giving an even satin/polished finish.
