Question Mark


Aqua blasting, also known as vapour blasting, is the non-aggressive removal of surface dirt and grime from metal components and antiques. Some other blasting methods actually remove the surface material from the components which can alter their critical dimensions. Our aqua blasting services leave the underlying component completely intact, with its original dimensions, whilst removing the unwanted carbon deposits, oil, grease and grime etc.

Aqua blasting achieves this by accelerating water and a mildly abrasive emulsion under high pressure through a nozzle. The water in this process acts as a buffer, whilst the emulsion gently removes the grime leaving the underlying surface intact.

The emulsion contains particles which are just 150-200 microns in diameter, these gently remove the contaminates on the surface of the component.
