with descaling.

What is Descaling?

Descaling of metal is the process of removing the built-up scales or oxides that form on the surface of metal, typically after high-temperature operations like hot rolling, welding, or heat treatment. This is done to improve the metal’s surface quality, enhance its corrosion resistance, and prepare it for further processing or finishing.

Descaling at Vibra Finish

There are a variety of techniques we use, such as blasting, contactless solution dipping, mechanical grinding, and vibratory tumbling to remove scale, rust, and corrosion from your parts’ surface. Descaling not only improves the appearance of your materials but also improves their function.

Improve surface quality and performance with descaling.

Scale Removal

Descaling effectively removes scale, rust, and other contaminants from the surface of metal parts. This results in a cleaner and smoother finish, improving the overall appearance and performance of the part.

Increased Durability

Descaling can clean a part’s surface and prepare it for a downstream operation such as paint or other coatings. The efficiency of a coating operation is solely dependent on the pre-coating surface, thereby making descaling a critical part of the coating process.

Enhanced Adhesion

Descaling can also improve the adhesion of subsequent coatings or plating, resulting in a stronger bond and better overall performance of the part.

Frequently Asked Descaling Questions

What types of components can be descaled?

Our descaling services are suitable for a variety of ferrous metal components. Our team has experience working with different industries and can provide customized solutions for your requirements.

How does descaling contribute to the quality of my parts?

Descaling not only improves the appearance of your materials but also removes any damaged or weakened areas caused by scale, rust, or corrosion. This results in more robust and more durable components that perform better under stress or wear.

What is the difference between blasting and vibratory tumbling for descaling?

Blasting uses propelled abrasives to remove scale and rust from the surface, while vibratory tumbling uses larger abrasive stones that are agitated to abrade the exposed surfaces. The method used will depend on factors such as the type of metal and the extent of scaling present. We can guide you in choosing the most suitable method for your specific application.
