Allard Engineering has just announced a brand-new Vapour Blasting (aka wet abrasive) machine. These are a highly effective and less aggressive pre-treatment process prior to adding a protective finish such as powdercoat.

They can also be used as a gentle cleaner where a painted finish is not required.

The vapour blasting process reduces the amount of dust generated and is reckoned to be safer than a dry blasting method and reduces the risk of sand or dust inhalation.

Allard’s J1000 Wet Blaster is small in size, has a single-phase 240volt connection (three-phase is available, however) features a heavy-duty construction and uses recyclable blast media thus reducing cost. Prices start at £4788 inc VAT.

It is available direct from the Berkeley, Gloucestershire company now via or 01453 799 990 ENDS.
