Over the years we've developed a range of products that we can offer off the shelf, on top of our standard services. Even if your requirement isn't listed, if it's anything to do with composites, resin transfer moulding processes, vacuum assist resin injection, vacupress, thermoplastics or silicon, we can more than likely provide a solution.

Vapormatt Wet Blast

Our vapormatt wet blast service is used to treat primarily metal parts to restore surfaces to look as new with all surface contaminants and grease fully removed. This is very popular for car and motorbike components. As the surface finish is highly controllable, a range of effects can be acheived from extremely gentle to very aggressive depending on the wet glass bead type used. Vapormatt blasting can also be used on ceramic, glass, resin and plastic surfaces. After processing, surfaces are left clean andwithout a residual dust layer as normally found after dry sand blasting.
