Vapor Blasting Services
Vapor blasting is a non-aggressive surface prep technique that has been specifically developed for applications requiring finer finishes. Combining a thin film of water with fine blasting media, this technique can remove dirt, contaminants, rust, corrosion, and old paint from a wide range of surfaces.
Because the stream of water and the blasting media have a gentle cleaning effect even on delicate surfaces, vapor blasting reduces the degree of surface deformation and provides a high-quality finish. The water also acts as a flushing agent that prevents the accumulation of blasting media on the surface being prepared.
Advantages of Wet Blasting
The biggest advantage of wet blasting is it produces a finer finish on a surface than traditional dry blasting. The water flushes out the abrasive, so there is no impregnation of the blasted surface. Any sediment or residual abrasive media is washed out. This leaves a cleaner surface.
Vapor blasting is preferred when you have a surface that you would like to preserve. By using a vapor blasting cabinet, you can clean, de-grease, and blast a surface in one step. Water and abrasive media is mixed together in a pressurized container, then propelled at an object inside the enclosure. This is effective for cleaning or stripping items like engine parts.
We do also have a dry blasting cabinet for more abrasive needs, or different surface preporation’s.
