Our line of Chemtrol vibratory compounds has grown with the finishing industry since 1955 and we continue to specialize in the formulation and manufacturing of compounds for use in the vibratory finishing process.
The vibratory finishing process has multiple variables of which compounds are just one. Adding chemistry to the vibratory process keeps the media and parts clean, enabling the media to accomplish its intended purpose. Because the variety of metals in the vibratory process, chemistry is needed to brighten and polish parts and to reduce cycle times
Our Chemtrol Advantage is having a chemist who has been dedicated for 35 years to developing compounds for the vibratory process and being able to formulate, craft and test our compounds under one roof. This dedication has enabled us to properly develop the best, most cost effective formulae to achieve your part’s specifications.
Chemistry is a very integral part of the vibratory finishing process. In order to achieve an acceptable part you must introduce a compound into the process.
These compounds consist of :
• Adding abrasive reduces cut cycle times and can be used to improve the RMS finish of the part
• Adding burnishing compounds generate brighter and cleaner parts and can assist in running delicate parts.
Oil and dirt are a detriment to the finishing process and must be removed. Using an alkaline cleaner assures the cleanliness of the parts and the effectiveness of the media.
Since the vibratory process is mostly a wet process the use of rust inhibitors is necessary to protect the parts after finishing.
The introduction of accelerants into vibratory compounds has enabled the process to achieve very low RMS finishes within greatly reduced time cycles.
As you can see compounds are widely used in the vibratory process and this is paramount to obtaining acceptable finishes. Our dedication to continually develop these compounds is how we are able to help our customers achieve their finishing requirements.
