Mass Finishing Compounds are necessary for any mass finishing, vibratory finishing, or tumbling operation. Compounds help clean the work piece as well as the media while processing. Compounds can be selected for cutting and deburring as well as polishing. Compounds are available in liquid and powder form. Liquid compounds are more common as they can easily be metered into the finishing machine during the finishing cycle.
Rust inhibitors are necessary for workpieces with a high ferrous content as parts will rust. Workpieces can rust not only after processing, but while in process.
Pastes are often used for process in which a high level of cutting may be required. Paste processes are also frequently used for polishing processes. The paste is typically used with small porcelain media.
