Bead Blasting Services
Accurate Precision Plating (APP) offers bead blasting services (also known as sandblasting or abrasive blasting) to help prepare metal surfaces for finishing. Bead blasting increases the bonding effectiveness of coatings with the substrate and is an efficient and economical alternative to chemical cleaning. Using high-pressure air, this process can be used on hard surfaces to smoother, shape, deburr, blend and stress relieve any hard part prior to gold, silver, copper, bright nickel, or electroless nickel plating. Bead blasting provides superior surface cleaning to remove paint, rust or other coatings.
