Composition Materials introduces a variety of non-skid coatings designed to be applied in a single application.  Many of the additives have the same density as the coatings. Therefore, they remain in suspension after mixing and can be painted on the surface. Currently, most non-skid additives are broadcast after painting. This is more expensive and often produces a lower quality surface.

Non-skid additives include: walnut shell, clear and colored thermoset plastics, and also very hard abrasives such as aluminum oxide.

  • Drag Finishing of Delicate Parts

    For complex parts with high surface finish specs, production deburring and surface prep can be done using the drag finishing process whereby the parts to be deburred and finished are mechanically dragged through the media while attached to fixtures—thus preventing the parts from contacting one another.

  • Increasing Vibratory Efficiency by Optimizing the Choice of Media Shape Relative to Part Geometry

    When choosing vibratory media, understand the size, shape, starting roughness condition and metallurgical structure of the part.

  • Microabrasive Precision Shot Peening

    Precision shot peening brings an entirely new concept to the field of microabrasive blasting, and it is complementary to its larger cousin. Using glass bead media, several companies have been shot peening for years with microabrasive blasting technology.
