World Leader in Plastic Blast Media
Since 1981, Maxi-Blast, Inc. has introduced non-abrasive blast finishing to thousands of manufacturers, specialty finishing shops and molders throughout the world. Our media was designed to become the alternative to chemical cleaning and sandblasting-type abrasives. For use in our specialty blast cabinets, plastic blast media virtually eliminates the slow, hazardous and costly hand cleaning process, without damage to parts.
Our extensive line of blasting media is manufactured exclusively in the United States, under rigid quality standards. We guarantee our customers receive the highest quality media within their designated specs. Our media is designed to offer a better quality finishing, with shorter cleaning times, while saving our customers money.
Common applications for use with Maxi-Blast blasting media include: screw, mold and die cleaning; paint and powder coating removal; cryogenic, plastics and electronics deflashing.
However, our Sales Engineers can help determine which media works best for even the most distinctive applications. For more information please visit www.MaxiBlast.com or contact us directly.
Granulated Plastic Media
Non-abrasive granulated plastic blast media is available in five distinct hardness, density categories and in precise size ranges. Common uses are Mold Cleaning, Paint & Coating Removal and Screw Cleaning.
Engineered Thermoplastic Media
Our line of engineered thermoplastic media is available in a range of sizes, shapes and colors to fit specific deflashing needs. Deflashing can be done on molded rubber, or plastic and die cast parts at higher wheel speeds due to tremendous impact strength.
Cryogenic Grade® (CG)
Cryogenic Grade Translucent Cubical (CGTC)
Polyamide Cubical® (PA)
Polyamide Cylindrical® (PAC)
Spherical Polystyrene® (PB)
Ideal for low cost abrasive blast cleaning. Common applications include preparing surfaces for bonding, removing heat treat scale, deburring and general cleaning.
Nylon tumbling media is non-abrasive and very durable. This type of media is mixed with rubber parts in a cryogenic tumbler in order to aid in the deflashing of parts and reduce deflashing cycle times.
Organic media is non-toxic and produces no silicosis hazards. This produces a safer work environment and is effective in the deflashing of many thermoset parts.
Static Control and Dust Inhibitor
Liquid static inhibitors provide additional effectiveness in the deflashing process by reducing dust and media buildup on parts. Providing an electrical discharge path to ground, static problems are virtually eliminated. Inhibitors can be used in both air-blast (suction or pressure style) and centrifugal wheel-blast systems.
