Finishing Processes

Surface Finishing

Bead Blasting

Bead Blasting is a metal surface finishing treatment, utilizing round beads of glass media driven by air through specially designed nozzles at the material surface. This will result in a clean, bright, satin, uniform surface finish on complex shapes, with minimal dimensional change or removal of material from the component. Bead Blasting produces a more aesthetically appealing finish than other processes which makes it suitable as a final finish on many components.

Shot Blasting

Surface cleaning of a wide variety of components, Ranging from new fabricated items to old parts for restoration. A 9m container providing a 6.6m long blast room is available for this metal surface finishing process. Shot blasting abrasives are used to clean and prepare substrates prior to painting/coating or repair. The most effective media for the shot blasting process is Steel Grit; this strips many types of surface contaminants from steel and other foundry metals.
