Advantages of Rockingham Aqua Blasting
Cleans By Flow of Water
As the name suggests, aqua blasting cleans by mixing an abrasive media with water and air at high pressures. The water cushions the impact protecting your parts from the erosion and distortion that dry blasting causes. Aqua Blasting produces an even and soft finish.
Eliminates Media Impingement
Dry blasting runs the risk of damaging parts and removing precious material thickness through high force impacts. In vapour blasting the water acts as a barrier between the abrasive media and your part, evening out the impact and resulting in a finish that can be smoother than factory.
Cleans Hard to Reach Areas
Traditional methods can only clean where the abrasive media can impact. Because aqua blasting uses flowing water, it can clean every nook and cranny of your part, even the bits you can’t see.
No Heat Generated and No Need For Nasty Chemicals
Vapour blasting eliminates heat damage. Water means less friction and less friction means less heat. Aqua blasting non-destructively cleans without the need for toxic chemicals.
Clean, Restore and Protect
Aqua blasting removes years of corrosion, grime and tarnish from the tightest places in record time. No other process compares with Aqua blasting for cleaning and finishing surfaces. With one step you can restore your part and keep it cleaner for longer.
No Risk of Damage Like Dry Blasting
Dry blasting risks damaging your parts through heat, friction, dust and sheer force. Why take the risk when aqua blasting is a proven more efficient and gentler method for cleaning and restoring surfaces.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What types of metal can be Vapour Blasted?
At Rockingham Aqua Blast we specialise in restoring Aluminium, Titanium, Copper, Bronze, Brass and stainless steel. You might be surprised what can be vapour blasted, including some plastics. If you’ve got something you aren’t sure about, give us a call.
What is your Turnaround?
Once we have received the part, our standard turnaround is 2-3 working days in the shop. However, if you need a part express, contact us directly and we will do our best to sort something out.
Are Aqua Blasting, Vapour Blasting and Water Blasting the same thing?
Yes, all these terms refer to mixing an abrasive medium with water as opposed to a dry blast. The different terms all mean the same thing.
How do I prepare my parts for Vapour blasting?
Disassemble the parts and remove any brackets, bolts or bearings that you can. Threaded steel inserts, iron cylinder liners, valve seats cannot be removed so we will mask them off before blasting. It’s best to give the parts a preliminary clean before sending them to us. We are happy to do it, but it will increase the turn-around time and your expense. Gaskets and heavy sealants must be removed prior to blasting- the blaster will not remove them.
What can go wrong?
Most parts look fantastic and are ready to go once we give it a final inspection and touch up. Sometimes aqua blasting might reveal hidden cracks or cosmetic damage under the debris. Aqua blasting will make these much easier to see but will not repair them.
What is the process?
Typically, once we have received your part(s) we will inspect and photograph them, making sure to discuss any potential issues with you. After inspection we clean the part and plug it up if required. The part is now ready to be aqua blasted. From there we rinse and dry the part, doing our utmost to get all aqua blasting media rinsed off. Finally, we take photos of your beautifully restored part and get it ready for shipping back to you.
It is important to note that while we take the utmost care to remove any traces of blast media it is your responsibility to ensure the parts are spotless before reassembly. RINSE, RINSE, WASH, AND RINSE AGAIN
What’s the deal with return shipping?
Once we’ve finished restoring your part, we’ll ship it back to you as soon as we can. To make sure nothing goes wrong, the part will be shipped with insurance and tracking. The cost will depend on the size and weight of the part.
