Before and after wet blasting carbon fibre

Perfect preparation for composite bonding – The reliability and strength of composite bonding is significantly improved with effective surface preparation.

Wet blasting (or Vapor Blasting to give it its other name) removes waxy residues, grease, and other contaminants, whilst creating a ‘wet-out’ surface to a specific Ra surface roughness that is perfect for bonding.

The result, stronger more reliable bonding.

The 'wet-out' video on our dedicated comosites page is a great illustration of how wet blasting creates a reactive ‘wet-out’ surface that allows for the even and complete application of adhesives and other coatings.
