Plastic Finishing Media


Plastic media is not as aggressive as ceramics, but can create better surface finishes. Plastic media is much lighter than ceramic and can process parts that ceramic media might damage.


Plastic finishing media is recommended for general metal removal, pre-painted or pre-plated finishing, polishing, and fast and heavy cutting. Plastic media can be used for soft metals and produces a very smooth finish, but very little shine.


Synthetic Finishing Media


Synthetic media offers long wear and an aggressive cut. As with plastic media, synthetic media also weighs less than ceramic media, thus reducing surface hammering and offering greater volume per pound, resulting in lower costs and very clean finishes.


Synthetic finishing media is recommended for general metal removal, pre-painted or pre-plated finishing, and fast and heavy cutting. Synthetic media is especially good for high-energy machines such as centrifugal barrels and disc finishers, since synthetic media is resistant to chipping and breaking under high pressure.


Plastic Formulations:
VPreplate - A light weight media that produces a very smooth finish. An excellent preplate finish and long wearing.
XGeneral Purpose - This formulation is used in most standard applications. Great metal removal with a minimum of media loss.
XVFast Cut - A fast cutting media that leaves excellent finishes ready for anodizing or painting.
XX(30)Super Fast Cut - Super fast cutting where metal removal and radiusing is of primary concern.
Z1Fast Cut - Heavy zircon molded media, general purpose fast cutting with good wear designed to produce excellent finishes with reduced cycle times.
Z3Super Fast Cut - Heavy zircon molded media, a special blend of zircon and other abrasives for fast cut, fine finish and moderate wear.
Synthetic Formulations:
SPPolish - Light weight media that produces a bright polish finish.
SVPreplate - A long lasting media that produces extremely fine finishes with excellent color.
SXGeneral Purpose - Good cutting ability that produces a finish that can be plated or painted. Formulated for high energy equipment.
SJFast Cut - A light weight long lasting formulated for use with non-ferrous parts. Designed for deburring, radiusing, or cleaning using vibratory or high energy equipment.
