Vibratory Finishing Compound
Vibratory Finishing Compounds
Midvale Industries offers a broad line of vibratory finishing compounds for mass finishing processes. Both vibratory media and compounds are critical components for achieving a consistent and precise finish.
Vibratory finishing compounds have been chemically engineered for specific finishing applications to provide the best surface finish. These compounds ensure that your media and equipment continue to run at high production levels. See below for a list of our vibratory compound options.
Common finishing applications include burnishing, polishing, inhibiting, deburring, deflashing and more.
Acid Burnishing Compounds are used for bright and lustrous finishes (typically used with steel vibratory media but can be used with ceramic vibratory media).
Alkaline Burnishing Compounds create a nice deep shine and can be used with ceramic media, plastic media, and some porcelain media.
Cleaning Compounds enhance the feed and roll of the mass and come in a range of formulations designed for specific soils.
Deburring Compounds are designed to provide smooth and refined surfaces while providing lubrication and reducing impingement. They aid in the removal of metal fines while preserving the media as it breaks down. Deburring Compounds are available in a multitude of formulations to accommodate both ferrous and non-ferrous parts in a variety of foaming actions
Descaling Compounds are designed to remove tough oxide and carbonized oxide films. These compounds can be very acidic, very alkaline, or heavily chelated. Most of our acidic descaling compounds are designed to be used with ceramic, plastic, and stainless steel vibratory media (do not use with carbon steel vibratory media).
Inhibiting compounds protect parts from oxidation, corrosion, and tarnishing. Inhibiting compounds can be used in a Vibratory Bowl but typically are utilized in a post-dip or spray. Inhibiting Compounds are available for ferrous and non-ferrous metals. They are recommended for use with steel vibratory media that is used in burnishing applications.
The compounds we sell are made in the United States by a manufacturer that has produced high quality compounds for over a century. Most compounds ship within a day and the remaining typically take less than a week to ship. Many our compounds are environmentally friendly and biodegradable. Special formulations can be blended to suit challenging jobs.
