NEW - Vapour Blast



Aqua blasting also known as Vapor blasting, is a wet blasting process utilising 100/150 micron glass media suspended 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 sympathetically 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.


Advantages of Vapor Blasting
  • Dust free process
  • Cleans by flow of water not by impact
  • Simultaneously degrease & blast clean
  • Water acts as a lubricant between media & component
  • Promotes longer media life
  • Produces a 'softer' finish
  • Avoids media impregnation on soft materials


Typical Applications

  • Degreasing / surface finishing of components in the automotive, reconditioning & maintenance industries
  • Cleaning of dies & moulds
  • Removal of paint, rust, scale, carbon & similar deposits in engineering industries
  • Surface preparation prior to bonding, re-painting or re-coating
  • Satin finishing of stainless steels & other special materials
  • Cleaning of PCB's & electrical connectors
  • Removal of small burrs from manufactured components



Other Notes...



If you need me to disassemble your item this takes time and I will need to quote on this.  If you want to disassemble, please only send me the parts you want cleaned ie you hold onto the seal, bolts, ball bearings.  The more disassembled it is the better the end result.  Also note that Vapor Blasting will not remove Paint, powdercoating and silicone.



There is a three part process.

  1. Cleaning
  2. Abrasive blasting
  3. Vapor Blasting



Disclaimer - If the part is corroded to the point where it is badly pitted, keep in mind that these pits will not disappear during vapor blasting. In fact, it will most likely make them more prominent, especially on a large smooth surface. On a rough surface with a lot of facets or intersections, though, you can probably get away with it.
