Proper surface preparation is essential for the success of any protective coating or bonding process. The importance of removing oil, grease, old coatings and surface contaminants cannot be over emphasized. Incomplete activation of the surface or removal of surface deposits, such as mill scale, rust on steel, and oxidation on non-ferrous metals, and residual material […]
When ready made solutions just won’t work, Guyson’s Custom Shop is here to help.
Guyson’s Multiblast 3D is specifically tailored for use with post processing of 3D printed parts. The Multiblast 3D has the ability to create a wide array of surface finishes for both cosmetic and/or functional purposes. Its capabilities range from smoothing striation marks and other additive manufacturing artifacts, to preparing the surface for optimal paint/coating adhesion.
Guyson has just completed a custom Model 9 Manual blast system for surface preparation application for electro-deposited composites coatings. This typical application is used in the aviation, automotive and power generation industries and can be applied to aluminum, steel and nickel-based alloys. Typical components can be rolled, forged, extruded or cast.
Guyson recently completed the engineering, design and build of 2 Custom Robotic Wet Blasting Systems for a Tier 1 automotive supplier. Learn more about these custom machines.
Guyson was able to create a stronger finish using a media that was specifically called out as improper by Cerakote. This is because Guyson knows blasting and the effect of different medias on specific metals.
Prepping metal to achieve a perfect anodized finish can be a complex process. Whether you are working with aluminum, magnesium, titanium or zinc, the metal first needs to be prepared the correct way to achieve the best results.
