Vapour Blasting, Dry Blasting & Surface Reconditioning

Vapour blasting, carried out by DP Tyres, Wigan workshop, gives a much finer finish than other blast cleaning methods.

This is because the finish is produced through flow of water borne abrasive, resulting in a flushing action. No media is impregnated into the surface, nor is there any dust created by the break-up of media, unlike dry blasting where the finish is produced by sheer force of media impact.

A specially designed pump agitates water and media into a slurry, and pumps it to the blast gun. At the same time, air is introduced at the blast gun nozzle, to accelerate the slurry to a high velocity, giving it a greater cleaning effect on impact.

This gives your metal objects a cost effective yet “good-as-new” finish, perfect for classic car parts and Victorian fireplaces alike!

 

Applications for vapour blasting include:

  • Degreasing / surface finishing of components in the automotive, reconditioning, restoration and maintenance industries
  • Cleaning of dies & moulds
  • Windfarm and associated industries
  • Amusement parks
  • Engineering
  • Removal of paint, rust, scale, carbon & similar deposits on any metal object
  • Surface preparation prior to bonding, re-painting or re-coating
  • Satin finishing of stainless steels & other special materials
  • Cleaning of PCB’s & electrical connectors
  • Production deburring

 

The advantages of vapour blasting are:

  • Dust free process
  • Cleans by flow of water not by impact
  • Simultaneously degrease & blast clean
  • Water acts as a lubricant between media & component
  • Promotes longer media life
  • Produces a softer finish
  • Avoids media impregnation on soft materials
  • Minimal surface degradation
  • In process rust inhibitors used for non ferrous metals that can be painted over without further preparation

Additional Information

Sand Blasting

Sand Blasting not only removes the dirt, grease or paint, it also blasts away the metal beneath, leaving a damaged surface.

 

Shot Blasting

Shot Blasting leaves a smoother surface but still causes damage to the metal.

 

Vapour Blasting

Vapour blasting not only leaves the metal unharmed, it washes away the blast media leaving a perfect finish, smooth and ready to paint.
