What is blasting?
Blasting is essentially like a pressure washer that uses “abrasive media” to create the desired look. The abrasive material we use includes sand, garnet, walnut shells, glass beads, and high-pressure water.
We will pick the media, the pressure, the distance from the part after taking the desired surface texture, the material of the part, and the dimensional tolerances of the finished part into considerations.
Advantages of blasting
Blasting can create a uniform matte texture by shooting the media at a surface using air pressure.
The blasting process removes surface deposits and many cosmetic imperfections.
It also improves the appearance of metal surfaces and prepares surfaces for painting.
Applications of blasting
The metal blasting process is often applied to Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Copper, Steel, Brass, Titanium and Bronze. The plastic blasting process can be applied to most of plastic parts.
Blasting is a low-cost process often used for decorative parts, you can supply your own parts or we can manufacture and blast parts for you. We’re ready to help you in short and long runs. Call us today at +86 769 81886675 or send an email to email@example.com to learn more.
Advantages of anodizing
Anodizing is a finish that makes parts to be more decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant. The process is also used to offer different colors, improve surface uniformity, and increase resistance to were from normal handling and usage.
Applications of anodizing
Anodizing is most commonly applied to protect aluminum alloys, but we also do it on processes magnesium and titanium parts.
What we can do?
Sulfuric acid is the most widely used solution to produce anodized coating. Our anodizing process is certified to Mil. Spec. 8625-F type II. This specification is the model for much of the anodizing specified for military and aerospace products. MIL-A-8625-F also forms the basis for many anodizing specifications that are used throughout the industry.
If there are tight tolerances need to be noted, the thickness of the anodizing layer has to be taken into consideration when choosing the machining dimension. We strongly recommend that customers specify that “dimensions apply after all surface finishes” on the engineering drawing so that our machine shop can take the anodization thickness into account when performing final machining of the mechanical metal part prior to anodization.
