Vapour Blasting and Dry Blasting Services
Vapour Blasting is an abrasive blast cleaning process. Also commonly known as wet blasting, liquid honing, vapour honing, dustless blasting, or slurry blasting. Vapour blasting removes contaminants from a surface, or finishing a surface using pressurised water and abrasive blast media.
A mixture of water and glass beads are combined to form a very fine slurry before being blasted onto the component via compressed air and slurry pump. Unlike dry blasting, the presence of water and use of a detergent creates a lubricating cushion that mildly polishes, degreases and protects the surface. Dry Blasting is a more aggressive version of the Vapour Blast generally used for cleaning where chemical cleaning is not possible.
Vapour blasting is preferred when you have a surface that you would like to preserve. By using a slurry blaster or vapour blasting cabinet, you can clean, de-grease, and blast a surface in one step. This saves considerable time over traditional dry abrasive blasting.
