The wet blasting process can successfully remove burrs, scale, oxidation and rust, machining marks, and coatings. It can enhance cosmetic appearance by producing a matte finish. It can take a smooth surface and etch it for superior coating and bonding, or it can create a smoother finish.
Wet Tech systems are ideal for processing internal passages of machined parts that are hard to reach with other methods. The Wet Tech process does not leave media embedded in the part.
Additive Manufacturing also can benefit from wet blast finishing. It can remove upskin and downskin, as well as support structures without damaging the part or product.
