The process cleans by flow, not impact, producing a 'soft' finish.
Vapour blasting is ideal for a wide range of both Bike and Car components - Engine and Gearbox Casings, Cylinder Heads, Blocks, Carb's, Crank Cases, motorcycle wheel hubs, Barrels, Brackets, Side Covers, etc
The Vapour blasting process is suitable for Aluminium, Bronze, Magnesium, Titanium, Brass, Copper etc. It will gently clean the surface without damage to gasket faces etc and produces a satin finish which will handle without picking up finger marks and gently peens the surface so can help reduce porosity in castings and very easy to keep clean.
Vapour Blasting is both highly effective and gentle at the same time - The process cleans very effectively without removing any of the underlying metal or substrate.
This allows for the cleaning of delicate parts and soft metals.
Note: All bearings & valves etc have to be removed and anything lacquered or painted will need to be stripped prior to blasting as this process this can be done by yourselves or by us if you require us to.
If time is pressing or you lack the necessary cleaning equipment or it's just a case of not being confident of being able to clean the item to the required standard then we can provide this service for a cheaper additional charge, depending upon the cleaning level required.
After Blasting all parts will be washed and blown down with compressed air to remove the glass bead then dried on exiting the washer.
Whilst every care is taken to ensure there is no glass bead remaining you must rewash all parts again before fitting.
Vapour Blasting South Canterbury Limited cannot be held responsible for any damage caused by improper cleaning after the blasting process.
