Vapor Blasting Service
Vapor Blasting is commonly known as Aqua blasting, Wet blasting, Slurry blasting and Liquid honing. It is the number one choice for applications requiring the highest quality of surface finish. There are numerous reasons why Vapor Blasting is becoming more favorable over dry blasting and this is primarily because of its two key features; firstly, the finish is achieved by flow of water borne abrasive – not by impact, and secondly because it is a dust free process. The process lends itself nicely to any engine or piece that has a presentation finish.
Vapor Blasting is perfect way to clean and prepare many types of engine components, suspension parts, castings and other pieces when you want to retain the “as cast” look.
Vapor Blasting process cleans the surface like nothing else and creates the correct look and feel you want on your engine or other high quality restoration.
Vapor blasting is a less aggressive form of blasting in comparison to dry blasting, working just as effectively. The ricochet of media is reduced due to the cushioning effect created from the water acting as a lubricant between the media and the component surface. As a result, the angle of the media is changed, producing a lapping effect traveling across the surface, resulting in an even satin/ polished finish
