The combination of water, abrasives, compressed air and FerroECOBlast Europe’s know-how is guaranteed to provide the best possible solution for any of your special applications.

Wet Blasting – the flushing action of a water-abrasive combination allows optimal surface cleanliness.

What is Wet Blasting?

The Wet Blasting process is a special technique where water, abrasive media and compressed air are mixed and delivered to the surface through the nozzle. It is much softer, gentler and non-aggressive, with a controllable surface impact.

Like Dry Blasting, Wet Blasting machines can also be delivered in different options; from the simple injector to the powerful pressure types that come in a number of variations.

 Wet blast machines are often applied in environments where the risk of explosion exists (for blasting titan, magnesium, aluminium alloys, etc.), and where clients need equipment in the ATEX version.

Manual, automated or robotic machines using the Wet blasting technique are provided to customers all around the globe for different applications.

Wet Blasting Advantages

Wet Blasting Advantages

  • ideal for restoration applications
  • perfect for highly-sensitive surfaces and explosion-risk areas
  • eliminates the need to use dangerous chemicals
  • potential to reduce dust
  • less Sensitivity to outside conditions
  • washes the surface with water in a single action

Where do we apply it?

  • surface preparation
  • cleaning after PVD coating
  • deburring 
  • polishing

Different types of media can be used for Wet Blasting, such as glass, ceramic, aluminium oxide, etc.

It is used to clean and detect cracks or defects on highly sensitive automotive or engineering parts, for special applications in the aeronautical industry, as well as for surface preparation or cleaning before and after PVD coating. As surfaces can be very fine and shiny following Wet blasting, this technique is also used for deburring and polishing

With a very special mix of abrasives, water and additives, we are able to reach the nearly polished surface with extremely low Ra/Rz.
