Did you know wet blasting (or vapor blasting to give it its other name) has several advantages over other die cleaning processes…
- Unlike dry blasting, dies do not have be dry from the caustic dip stage before being wet blasted - saving valuable time.
- Thanks to the cushioning effect of the water in the wet blast process there is no risk of damaging or rounding edges.
- Because of the effectiveness of wet blasting some users can reduce the time needed in the caustic dip.
- Dies are left with an even reactive surface that is perfect for nitriding prior to storage.
