Aqua blasting also known as Vapor blasting, is a wet blasting process utilising fine glass media in a high pressure water system – Unlike shot blasting this process is non aggressive.
Where a fine finish is required on aluminium, alloys, steel and most other metals Aqua blasting/ Vapor Blasting is the perfect answer for bringing parts and components back to an “As New Condition”
Aqua/Vapor blasting is ideal for a wide range of both Bike and Car components – Engine and Gearbox Casings, Cylinder Heads, Blocks, Carb’s, Crank Cases, motorcycle wheel hubs, Barrels, Brackets, Side Covers, etc
The Aqua/Vapor blasting process is suitable for Aluminum, Bronze, Magnesium, Titanium, Brass, Copper etc. It will gently clean the surface without damage to gasket faces etc, produces a satin finish which will handle without picking up finger marks and gently peens the surface so can help reduce porosity in castings and very easy to keep clean.
Aqua/Vapor Blasting is both highly effective and gentle at the same time – The process cleans very effectively without removing any of the underlying metal or substrate. This allows for the cleaning of delicate parts and soft metals.
