Aquapolish wet blasting : How does it work ?


  • Wet blasting is a unique process in which a mixture of water and abrasive is thrown under pressure on the surface of the part to be treated.
  • A pump supplies the gun nozzle with water/abrasive mixture and compressed air provides the projection force on the object.
  • The sealed cabin recycles the slurry in a closed loop system.
  • The abrasive is selected according to the amount of material to be removed and the nature of the base material.
  • Rinsing and drying with compressed air will finish the treatment to bring the objects back to their original condition.

  • Perfect cleaning in the most inaccessible places in record time.
  • Very nice satin finish on many different substrates such as stainless steel, aluminum, brass, bronze, thanks to the softness of the abrasive.
  • In case the part will have to be polished, wet blasting can be considered a "pre-polishing" step, and so reduces drastically the polishing time.
  •  Cleans and restores most plastic or rubber parts.
  • Even chromed parts can be cleaned without damaging the surface !
  •  No chemicals needed
  •  Can adapt surface finishes to customer requirements by changing the abrasive type and grain size.

Wet Blasting vs Dry Blasting

  • Very nice satin finish as opposed to dry sanding which leaves a matte surface picking up finger marks.
  • This surface smoothness gives to the base material a much better corrosion reststance.
  • No dust, and especially no silica released into the atmosphere, making a filtering system unnecessary.


  • No incrustation of abrasive in the base material.
  • No removal of material by erosion, the dimensional integrity of the part is preserved. The finest details and markings, so essential for collectible parts, are thus kept intact.
