Vibra Finish offers a wide selection of finishing media and compounds to give its customers the best results possible. Its portfolio includes corn cob media, which can be used to deburr, smooth, polish, clean and separate parts. There are many advantages to using this natural finishing media.
Corn cob media is made from the hard ring of a corn cob, broken down into grit of different sizes, from very coarse to very fine. The size of the media is determined by the weight of the parts to be finished, and the desired outcome. It can be used with both tumbling and vibrating machines, and is a very good cleaning and drying media because it can absorb dirt and grime without damaging parts. Corn cob media can also be used as burnishing grit, and works well on soft metals like bronze and brass. In addition, it can be used for polishing metal and plastic parts without damaging even the most fragile parts and micro finishes. Corn cob media also absorbs oils and water very well.
This media is durable and can be reused repeatedly because it does not break down easily.
Corn cob media is biodegradable, making it an environmentally friendly choice. It can be incinerated and is harmless to health and the environment. Plus, it is dust-free and clean.
While there are many advantages to using corn cob media, there are several other options available from Vibra Finish. The Mississauga, Ont.-based company also carries steel, ceramic and plastic media, as well as a range of compounds.
