Manual transmissions, steering boxes, differentials, front and rear suspension, brake systems overhauled and rebuilt
We provide complete or partial restorations of motor vehicles as required by you
Engine restoration: Interior of engine crankcases can be treated with our Glyptal red insulating paint, which prevents oil seepage and also provides a smooth internal surface that reduces the tendency for sludge build-up and allows more rapid oil flow/return to the sump.
Component surface restoration using our vapour blasting process, specialised method of surface treatment
Specialised removal of surface corrosion, rust, paint and other surface treatments, from all metal surfaces is undertaken with our vapour blasting process.
The vapour blasting process is also known as aqua blasting, wet glass bead blasting, vaqua-blasting, all as performed by Abrasablast
Vapour blasting provides derusting, scale removal, decarbonising, deoxidising, cosmetic surface finishing, micro-deburring, fine peening, bonding preparation, circuit board cleaning, coating removal, mould cleaning, pre-paint & pre-plating surface preparation, surface-contaminant removal and delicate deflashing of thermoplastics
The process is applied using graded spherical glass beads in our Vaqua high performance vapour-blast machine, which simultaneously degreases and provides rust inhibition.
With Abrasablast vapourblasting process there is NO IMPREGNATION of the surface and absolutely no damage to sharp edges and precision surfaces

The Vapourblast process is not only one of the world's fastest, most efficient and most economical metal cleaning and finishing systems, it totally eliminates the health and environmental hazards associated with strong chemicals and dust associated with other conventional methods.
What this means for you, our customer, is a better job, produced more rapidly and with greatly reduced cost and reduced environmental impact
Abrasablast vapourblasting: Catering for automotive, aviation, marine, electrical, electronic, and many other industries
We do not vapourblast vehicle bodies or panels
Abrasablast vapour blasting process is suitable for aluminium, brass, bronze, copper, magnesium, titanium, other alloys, all ferrous metals including stainless steels.
NOTE: Components that have been vapourblasted will sometimes require a post-treatment prior to assembly.
At Abrasablast we rinse and air-blast all components after treatment but it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure all precautions are taken to reduce any possibility of media entrapment prior to assembly. Customer must pay special attention to examining and thoroughly cleaning threaded blind holes, galleries, cavities, drillings, etc
