Aqua Blasting Solutions 
for Electrical Parts

Aqua blasting is employed in the electrical industry due to its capacity to effectively clean and finish sensitive components without causing damage. The method utilises a combination of water and abrasive media to remove contaminants such as oxidation, corrosion, and residues from connectors, circuit boards, and other electrical parts. This gentle yet efficient approach ensures optimal performance, improved conductivity, and increased longevity of electrical components while maintaining their integrity.


Aqua Blasting Applications

For the Electrical Industry

Aqua blasting in the electrical industry offers versatile finishing applications, addressing specific needs and challenges in the manufacturing and maintenance of electrical components. Some key finishing applications achievable with wet blasting include:

Surface Cleaning

Removes effectively contaminants such as dirt, grease, oxidation, and residues from various electrical components, ensuring a clean surface for optimal functionality and preventing potential electrical issues.

Rust and Corrosion Removal

The process is highly effective in eliminating rust and corrosion from metal components, such as enclosures, connectors, and conductors, thereby enhancing the longevity of electrical equipment and maintaining their structural integrity.

Coating Removal

Wet blasting can efficiently strip old coatings, paints, and surface treatments from electrical enclosures, panels, and other components, facilitating the application of new protective coatings and ensuring a fresh and durable finish.

Contaminant Removal from Circuit Boards

It is suitable for delicate applications in the electrical industry, including the cleaning of circuit boards. Removes solder flux residues, contaminants & other unwanted substances without causing damage.

Surface Preparation for Painting

Prior to applying protective coatings or paint, wet blasting can be employed to prepare surfaces by creating a clean, profiled substrate. This ensures better adhesion and longevity of the applied coatings, improving the overall aesthetics of electrical components.

Preventive Maintenance

Aqua blasting parts regularly as a preventive maintenance can extend the lifespan of electrical equipment by preventing the accumulation of contaminants, reducing the risk of electrical failures, and ensuring consistent performance.
