What Is Vapour Blasting?
Hi and welcome to the world of Vapour Blasting, I am based in Norwich covering the East Anglia area undertaking many area’s of Vapour Blasting from Plastics to create a haze effect to Stainless Steal to give that smooth matt finish.
Aqua blasting also known as Vapour Blasting, is a wet blasting process utilising 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/ Vapour Blasting is the perfect answer for sympathetically bringing parts and components back to an “As New Condition”
Aqua/Vapour 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/Vapour blasting process is suitable for Aluminum, Bronze, Magnesium, Titanium, Brass, Copper etc. It will gently clean the surface without damage to gasket faces etc. It 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/Vapour 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.
Please NOTE that all engines must be stripped and seals & bearings etc removed as very fine glass bead is used and cant not prevent bead and water entering into parts that could be damaged
