The Aqua Wheelblaster uses wet blasting technology to finish and provide a key for alloy wheels.
This machine blasts, washes and prepares alloy wheels in one quick and simple step ready for painting and lacquering. This process uses water mixed with abrasive to surface treat the alloy and provide an ideal surface for paint or lacquer to adhere to.
Wet blasting, also known as slurry blasting, liquid honing and vapor blasting, is now the number one choice to obtain perfect finishing results.
The key to wetblasting is that the finish it produces through flow of water borne abrasive, giving a finer finish due to the flushing action of the water. The process does not allow for media to be impregnated into the component surface, nor is there any dust created by the break-up of media.
Wetblasting.com offers its customers a free testing service where samples can be sent in and tested using an extensive range of blasting equipment. This allows Rick to establish the correct blasting equipment for each particular application and can advise the customer on which works best to achieve their specific finishing results.

Vixen has sold many Aquablast machines for reconditioning markets, such as vacuum pump or car and motorcycle engine components such as a turbo or carburettor. The benefits are that components can be blasted without needing degreasing and leave the ultimate finish to present your remanufactured products.
Vixen’s Aquablast range of wet blasting machines blast and degrease components in a quick, easy dust-free process, which achieves outstanding finishing results on a variety of components. It’s particularly effective for surface preparation prior to bonding, re-painting and re-coating, creating a satin finish on stainless steel and other metals.
The Aqua Wheelblaster is designed to simultaneously wash, dry, blast and etch alloy wheels after minor kerb damage, in one chamber. The standard 6 step process for preparing alloy wheels by hand can take up to an hour, compared to just three3 minutes per alloy wheel using this machine.
