Blasting is one of the mechanical pretreatments in surface technology. A pure metallic surface is the basic prerequisite for optimum adhesion of the deposited layer. Accordingly, the quality of the blasting is a decisive factor for the surface quality of the coating. Matt chrome-plated surfaces are also characterized by good grip.
Benefits of the Blasting Process
Blasting is a pore-deep basic cleaning of scaled, oxidized or nitrided surfaces. It is used to free surfaces from native or foreign pollutions (solid or loose), and to roughen or matt the surfaces.
The pre-treatment improves the adhesion for the subsequent coating. Matt chrome also has optimal grip, which improves the conveyability of feed rollers. Sand or glass bead blasting can also be used to achieve optically appealing and not just technical layers.
Defined blasting is of great importance for the spectrum of components in the aerospace industry. Betz-Chrom offers blasting according to various standards and specified parameters. The blasting material selected complies with the respective requirements, e.g. Quality V 180.
Our Blasting Processes
Sandblasting is the coarsest form of blasting. If other surface properties are to be achieved, glass bead blasting or shot-peening can also be selected as an option.
We offer sandblasting, glass bead blasting (also in combination), shot-peening and blast cleaning. By working with an experienced sandblasting company, we can also implement other desired methods and surface qualities for you upon request.
For orders with increased time pressure, you have the option of using our express service. The express service is coordinated directly with our production control and invoiced via a surcharge.
Tips for the delivery
The delivery condition of the components is one of the decisive factors for optimum quality and a short throughput time. Here you will find helpful tips for the delivery of your components.
