Aquablast 1215

Charles Koopmanschap, one of Vixen’s Belgium based customers, purchased an Aquablast 1215 wet blasting cabinet and is more than pleased to say the least.

Manually operated, the Aquablast 1215 machine is particularly effective for creating a satin finish on stainless steel, along with a wide range of other metals. The Aquablast range is designed to simultaneously blast and degrease components in a quick and easy dust-free process, which achieves outstanding finishing results on a variety of components.

Charles was that thrilled with the running of the machine and the final results on his 750 cylinder motorbike parts, he offered to write a few lines to be featured on the testimonials page on our website. However, Charles went one step further than that by making the video featured below.

In the video Charles highlights his dirty motorbike parts and shows the full wet blasting process in action at his premises in Heverlee, Belgium. 

He refers to the Aquablast as a “wonderful piece of equipment”. 

The key to Vixen’s wetblasting process is that the finish is produced through flow of water borne abrasive and not by media impact. This helps to create a finer finish due to the lubrication and flushing action of the water during the process.

The wet blasting process eliminates media impregnation into the component, and as a result, is vastly becoming a popular choice for companies worldwide.
