What surfaces does vapour blasting work on?
Vapour blasting (also known as Aqua blasting) is the best surface finishing to get that clean as new look to Aluminium and non-ferrous metals. We don't use heavy abrasives like sand or grit that can seriously damage the surface.
At Red Dragon Vapour Blasting, Wrexham, we use micro glass beads mixed with water that creates a slurry which gently clears away grime and oxidation from components without damaging the surface. This leaves a satin like finish which is resistant to picking up small blemishes such as finger marks.
For industrial clients, these are examples of services we offer:
After vapour blasting all components are thoroughly blasted with air and coated with an oxidation inhibitor.
All components to be processed must be degreased and all parts such as bearings and bushes removed before vapour blasting can be carried out. We can do this but it will increase the cost. It’s best if you clean the components before their arrival.
