What is vapour blasting?

Vapor blasting, also known as wet blasting or liquid honing, is rapidly becoming the number one choice for applications requiring the highest quality of surface finish.

Kelvin’s Vapormatt Puma wet blasting machine uses the vapor blasting process to simultaneously degrease and blast industrial, mechanical and household components, to remove corrosion, paint or rust.

The uniqueness of vapour blasting is that the finish is a mix of air with the flow of a water borne abrasive, giving a finer finish due to the flushing action of the water.

No media is impregnated into the component, and there is no dust created in the process, unlike dry blasting where the finish is produced by sheer force of media impact.

The machine

The machine is a Vapormatt Puma, and Kelvin’s machine is the latest model and installation in New Zealand.

The finish

The impressive feature about the process is it doesn’t damage the object you are working on, rather it polishes to a clean and uniform satin finish.


Vapour blasting is a quick way to make anything look new again: plastics, rubber any metal including musical instruments, heirlooms and automotive parts.
