Corn Cob Tumbling Media

The use of corn cob tumbling media is an environmentally friendly way to burnish, deburr, deflash, and polish small parts. Corn cob media can also be used in drying equipment and as an absorbent for grease and oil. They preserve sensitive surfaces and are ideal for plastics and softer metals.

Finishing Applications for Corn Cob Tumbling Media

  • Ammunition (polishing and cleaning brass casings)
  • Automotive (surface improvement, deburring, parts cleaning, and drying)
  • Industrial (drying, degreasing, and oil absorption)

Standard sizes available. Contact our team for special sizes

What is corn cob tumbling media?

Corn cob media is made up of 100% crushed corn cobs. This product is environmentally safe, biodegradable and non-hazardous to use. The corn cobs are soft enough to use on soft parts without causing damage. The starch nature of corn allows for high absorbancy of moisture and oils.

Foundry Release Agents

Midvale Industries stocks many different types of foundry release agents and mold partings for both automated and manual molding systems. Partings are available for use in coldbox, sodium silicate, no-bake, shell, and in green sand systems. There are formulations that are designed for low VOC emissions, odor free, and designed to be longer lasting than traditional partings. Freedom green sand parting is specially designed to improve pattern release and reduce build up on patterns. Freedom Foundry Products are premium products that are cost-effective and used by foundries around the country. They are a fraction of the price of competitor’s products.

  • We offer a variety of partings including no-bake, liquid, non-silica and silica, green sand additive, odor free, and more
  • Depending on the formulation, Freedom Parting and Release Agents can be used in no-bake, coldbox, sodium silicate systems, and more
  • Freedom Partings clean the pattern as it releases and require less material per application

Plastic Tumbling Media

Plastic tumbling media is a lightweight media that reduces the chance of damaging sensitive parts with delicate surfaces. It is typically longer lasting than ceramic media. Plastic media comes in a variety of formulations (some are designed for use in high energy finishers or centrifugal barrels) to achieve finishes ranging from a clean and reflective finish to a smooth matte finish.

Finishing Applications for Plastic Tumbling Media

Mass finishing, deburring, deflashing, metal removal, and fine finishing.

Shape & Size Options:

Standard shapes & sizes available, including but not limited to:

  • Triangles, angle cut triangles
  • Cones
    • Cylindrical, pilgrim, round top, taper top
  • Pyramids
  • Stars
  • Ellipses
  • Wedges

Contact our team for special shapes and sizes.

Plastic Vibratory Media Composition Options:

  • Low Densitydesigned for versatility, often used for deburring, flash removal, burnishing and preplate finishing.
  • High Densitydesigned for superior cut and stock removal on both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. In most instances this high density media reduces cycle times and provides vastly improved finishes in applications ranging from deburring of hard metals to fine finishes on intricate parts.
  • High Performanceformulated for use in specific applications involving ferrous metals. This media will provide a dramatic improvement in surface finishes with the impact resistance of a plastic body, which significantly decreases fracturing and impingement.

Each type of cutting ability has many composition formulas available. Contact our team for special compositions.

Stainless Steel Tumbling Media

Stainless steel tumbling media is known for its wear resistance, and in most instances lasts much longer than ceramic, plastic, and bio-based vibratory media. It performs a variety of finishing operations, often in one step, without specialized or dedicated equipment, reducing processing times. The use of stainless steel greatly reduces the risk of corrosion in your mass finishing applications.

Finishing Applications for Stainless Steel Tumbling Media

Mass finishing, deburring, deflashing, polishing, burnishing, fast metal removal, surface improvement, and cosmetic finishing.

Shape & Size Options:

Standard shapes & sizes available, including but not limited to:

  • Balls
  • Barrels
  • Cones
  • Ball Cones
  • Oval Balls
  • Diagonals
  • Pins

Contact our team for special shapes and sizes.

Steel Tumbling Media Composition Options:

  • Stainless Steel – ideal applications include corrosion-sensitive steel. Recomended to use when rust-free is essential. Stainless steel also reduces the amount of chemistry needed in most processes.
  • Carbon Steel – typically used in burnishing applications but can also provide a light edge break or deflashing.
