Maxspeed Vapour Blasting

As part of our expanding business we've invested in a vapour blasting machine ('Aquablast 915' by Vixen), which we bought to speed up the cleaning process for our engine re-builds. We carried out a lot of research over many months, investigating the kind of machine we wanted to buy before eventually deciding on this one. It's an amazing piece of equipment which can clean delicate parts and soft metals without causing any damage whatsoever, leaving an outstanding finish and making them look as good as new. The combination of water and media - known as a slurry - lubricates the component being cleaned, resulting in a pristine satin finish with no risk of damage to the underlying component. The slurry and rinsing cycles also contain a lightweight anti-rust agent to help prevent any immediate corrosion.


Since having this machine, we’ve been truly amazed by the results that can be achieved. We're now using it to clean many of our used car components to make them look as good as new. It's a fantastic and exciting process!


There are many other uses for this machine, so please take a look at our new page for Maxspeed Vapour Blasting or use the direct URL
