In fact our Profelis system has so many advantages over rival processes that it’s become the go-to solution for the industry’s manufacturers.
The profelis uses water, air and an additive to finish the wire or cable, avoiding the use of harsh chemicals. Typically, chemical finishing requires a much larger area for off-line processing, is massively environmentally unfriendly in comparison and also involves much higher running costs.
The highly controllable nature of wet-blasting makes it ideal for high tech., spring, memory and carding wire. It’s also perfect for wire for confirm, high voltage and submarine communications cable. So no matter what Wire & Cable product you manufacture, we’ve got your surface finishing covered.
With the need to clean and process wire and cable products in vast quantities, Vapormatt have identified and provided solutions that not only offer speed but, more importantly, great environmental benefits.
The Vapormatt wet blast process utilises a mixture of gas, solid and air in a combination that is completely inert and safe to use in all industrial environments. This, along with a small footprint, makes the Vapormatt Profelis wet blasting system very attractive, as it does not require heavy monitoring and regulation to ensure compliance with ever increasing environmental legislation.
Having designed a unique in-line way of utilising the Vapormatt wet blast process for wire and cable applications, an increasing number of manufacturers are turning to Vapormatt for processing solutions. By using wet blasting as an alternative to chemical pickling or dry blasting it is easier and safer to clean your wire and cable products.
The versatility of our process means it has been applied to a very diverse range of applications across the world. Typically manufacturers of high value products that require a very precise and consistent finish will benefit from the use of the Vapormatt wet blast process. Examples of successful installations have included: overhead power cables, band saw blades, tool steel, carding wire, aluminium and copper feedstock.
Recognising the diversity of products where the Vapormatt wet blast process can be applied has led us to developing a collaborative approach with our customers. We believe that our customers benefit from understanding how the wet blasting process can fit their needs.
