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

Advantages of Vapor Blasting
Vapor Blasting cleans by the flow of water and abrasive media, not by impact like in conventional dry blasting operations.
Vapor Blasting eliminates media impingement, providing a peening effect to the surface so parts surfaces stay cleaner longer.
The water acts as a lubricant or barrier between the abrasive media & the components surface protecting from erosion and distortion.
Being a liquid process, the Vapor Blast flows into areas inaccessible by other methods.
No heat is generated that may distort or damage parts.
