Plastic Vibratory Finishing Media

 

Plastic Finishing Media and Deburring Media

Plastic deburring media is available in low density, high density and high performance formulations to meet the needs of specific applications and a variety of finishes. All formulations ensure extended life, consistency of performance and reduced effluent, conforming to environmental and ecological standards. These are the most effective media for any vibratory finishing or deburring machines.

Low density – General purpose medias can be used for deburring, flash removal, burnishing and pre-plate finishing.

High density – Media that has been designed for superior cut and stock removal on both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. In most instances, these high density medias will reduce cycle times and provide vastly improved finishes in applications ranging from deburring of hard metals to fine finished on intricate parts.

High Performance – Media that has been formulated for use in specific applications involving ferrous metals.

These vibratory finishing media selection will provide a dramatic improvement in surface finished with the impact resistance of a plastic body, which significantly decreases fracturing and impingement.

Very mild cutting action producing a low-micro-inch pre-plate finish. Can be used for surface preparation of parts which require buffing, burnishing or
plating. Provides a smooth, clean and reflective finish.

DPLD-20                                                                         75                                                             Green      

A media which gives a medium cut while producing a low micro-inch finish. Use for surface preparation on parts requiring plating, buffing or burnishing.
Will usually eliminate a two (2) step process.

DPLD-30                                                                         75                                                          Maroon     

A faster cutting media which provides a very bright low micro-inch finish. Eliminates two-step operations where surface removal, buffing or plating of
parts is required.

DPLD-40                                                                         68                                                            Green    

A fast cutting media which provides a smooth matte finish. Removes burrs, flash, die marks and blends parting lines easily. A general purpose media for
all ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

High Density Media

High density DURAMEDIA® Plastic medias are designed for superior cut and stock removal on both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. In most instances,
these high density medias will reduce cycle times and provide vastly improved finishes in applications ranging from deburring of hard metals to fine
finished on intricate parts.

A mild butting media which produces a very bright pre-plate finish. Use on ferrous and non-ferrous metals which require plating or where burnishing is
necessary.

DPHD-120                                                                         85                                                      Dark Yellow  

A media which provides a more aggressive cut while producing a bright, smooth, low micro-inch finish. Use to provide a pre-plate finish on all ferrous
and non-ferrous metals.

DPHD-130                                                                         88                                                     Light Blue     

A fast-cutting media which provides a low matte finish. Use for deburring and surface metal removal on ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Reduces cycle
times and gives a pre-plate finish.

DPHD-140                                                                        90                                                      Light Gray

An extremely fast cutting media which provides a smooth matte finish. Use when removing surface imperfections or for forming a radius on parts.
Blends sharp edges and parting lines.

High Performance Media
