Ceramic Polishing Media (Ball Shape)
We can also make other size ceramic polishing media that not show in the table, so please contact us to get detail information
1. Why Ball Shape Media?
Ball shape media has good flow action and surface contact. Thus, it is useful for uniformly blending and smoothening of surfaces. Besides, ball shape porcelain media is excellent for polishing, especially for polishing and burnishing.
For example ceramic exhaust pipe polishing with porcelain ball is effective. What’s more, porcelain ball is excellent for polishing and cleaning.
Another application of porcelain ball is brass bullet shell (reloading) cleaning and polishing. This is because porcelain ball have mostly polishing performance and slight cutting power.
When bullet is used, surface of shell is dirt and oxide. However, we need to remove oxide and clean surface in a short time. Therefore we need to make it clean and new again and reveal brass original shining surface.
2. General Properties
2.1 Features of Ceramic Polishing Media
- Engineering use Ceramic polishing tumbling media mostly metal components deburring and polishing
- Ceramic polishing media have varieties of different size and shape
- Ceramic polishing media have wide application rage. It suitable for vibratory finishing machinery and most other surface finishing machine.
2.2 Ceramic Polishing Media Composition
Manufacturers make ceramic media with mixture of several mineral materials. These materials including: abrasive grit, clay, feldspar and sand. Later, theses material mixed homogeneously and stirring machine with constant water dosing. After that, a vacuum compressor removes void in the material and make it a solid and rigid material before drying and baking.
First of all, ceramic media are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Also, engineer selects right grade of abrasive grit, the proportion of abrasive to binder, and the most suitable binder. All these factors contribute to the ceramic media performance. As a result, the right selection of media meet requirement of certain parts and application.
While abrasive grit cut material from parts, the binder acts as a burnishing surface, and this works against rapid cutting.
