Media Type - Plastic

Low and high-density plastic media is used within the metal industry for surface preparation and improvement on most metals such as aluminum, brass, copper, and zinc as well as plastic. Bel Air has a wide selection of high and low-density plastic and synthetic tumbling media in a variety of sizes and shapes. Click the picture for more information, and to download our brochure.

Media Type - Ceramic

Ceramic media is used within the metal and plastics finishing industry for surface preparation and improvement on most metals such as steel, stainless steel, and other hard metals and materials. As ceramic media has a higher density than plastic, very aggressive material removal with short time cycles is possible.

Media Type - Dry Polishing

Our dry media has been developed over years of production experience. The main initiative has been to eliminate the associated problems of product waste ater. There are several main factors that we address to choose the correct media with the best performance. CUT is the factor that determines the ability to deburr or reduce rough surfaces. COLOR is the factor that determines the ability to brighten or polish the work piece. Size and density relate to the efficiency of the process.

Media Type - Precision

Precision media is used within the metal industry for surface preparation and improvement on most metals such as aluminum, brass, copper, and zinc as well as plastic. Precision media will achieve deburring & polishing in the finest geometries. Fine finishes as well as aggressive cutting can be achieved.

Media Type - Wet Burnishing

Bel Air steel and stainless steel finishing media are ideal for deburring, descaling, deflashing metal and plastic, removing die lines, pre-plate finishing, degreasing, cleaning and burnishing. When used in finishing equipment, stainless steel media actually improves part surfaces and provides substantial operating economies over other manufacturing methods.

Compounds

Compounds are an integral part of any finishing process, keeping the process media and parts clean by suspending the contaminants and metals in the process solution, while ensuring that the waste water can be treated, drained, and/or reused. In metal finishing, compounds lubricate parts and protect them from oxidation. Our burnishing compounds facilitate superior wet grinding and rust prevention.
