Avialite Type 2


Avialite Type 2


Avialite Type 2 – this media was designed for removal of paint and coatings from aluminium and composite materials without damaging these substrates. There is a vast array of other applications that can use this material and in the hands of a skilled operator large time and cost savings can be achieved against chemical and other forms of stripping. This is our commercially manufactured product made to the same standards as military product but without full first article inspection reports.

The material allows the controlled removal of surface coatings, paint , dirt, flash and burr from a variety of substrates, without damaging or peening the substrate, and at the correct pressures and conditions can achieve as much as a 6-12x recycle usage of the plastic media. This is due to the random ‘blocky/angular’ shape of the particle, and its thermoset qualities which will not shatter on impact and will rather ware down.
