FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Approved under Mil-P-85891A Military specification for plastic blast cleaning media.
- Produces far less dust than walnut shells allowing for a clean, easily visible work atmosphere.
- Properly used, will not abrade or warp sensitive surfaces, allowing parts to be salvaged and money saved.
- Media is treated with anti-static solution which reduces dust, static, and keeps parts cleaner.
- Sharp, granular edges produce quick cleaning action in less time, saving money.
- All media is non-toxic and produces no silicosis hazards contributing to a safer work environment.
- Offers excellent longevity reducing finishing costs.
- Will not remove plating, anodize, and conversion coatings when properly used, allowing for very controlled blasting on delicate substrates.
- Dry stripping:
Aluminum body ground vehicles (i.e., panel trucks)
Fiberglass body vehicles
Aircraft components (wheels, brakes, landing gear)
Any other coated or painted parts
- Deflashing thermoset plastic parts
- Deburring steel, aluminum and zinc parts
- Deflashing electronic components and assemblies
- Cleaning steel and aluminum molds
