RP Abrasives (RPA) has Sharply Expanded Their Bead Blasting Division

They now have capability to blast parts in a wide variety of sizes using an array of different media.

Parts as small as ½ inch in length can be blasted on one or on all surfaces while parts as long as 44 inches in length can also be blasted on one or on all surfaces. Masking is available as needed.

Blasting can improve parts in several ways from removing thin coatings to preparing surfaces to receive coatings to efficiently removing burrs. Blasting can also be used to achieving a desired surface roughness or texture.

Small parts can be individually blasted in a micro abrasive blaster, sometimes referred to as a pencil blaster, or they can be batch blasted in a tumble blaster which slowly rotates the parts in a basket while they are being blasted. This provides a very uniform finish. Medium sized parts can be individually blasted or batch blasted in their large blast cabinet while large parts are usually blasted individually.

RP abrasives routinely blasts plastic, aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel and other materials for medical, surgical, semiconductor, computer chip making and other applications. They use a wide range of medias. Glass beads, from very fine to course, as well as Aluminum Oxide to Garnett to Silicone carbide in various grits are all in stock.
