Our processes are proprietary and part specific, and each is managed by our team of Engineers and Lead Hands.They work in tandem to determine the most efficient course of action to deliver results. This includes their selection of media (when needed), and compounds.
Latem Industries is proud to be an authorized distributor of Washington Mills Media, a US based manufacturer of ceramic media. Having gotten their start in the late 70’s, Washington Mills is a worldwide leader in pre-formed ceramic media, delivering twice the processing life vs other standard vibratory media.
Latem does keep a small selection of new and used media on-hand, for sale. Larger quantities and more specific media can be ordered.
Decades of working with dirty parts have taught us that doing it right, often means doing it yourself, so our compounds consist primarily of our own proprietary recipes. From soaps and rust inhibitors to burnishing compounds, Latem’s own brand of environmentally friendly chemicals make the job much easier. Our compounds include…
LN200 GENERAL FINISHING
The LN200 is a general purpose, concentrated compound designed to aid in deburring and burnishing applications. This compound
will remove most drawing, stamping and machining oils. It may be used in hard water and show excellent steel mass control. It may
also produce high foam.
506605 POWDERED SOAP
The 506605 has been developed as an excellent clean compound for ferrous metals, removing oily film and deposits. It also has a
built-in rust inhibitor.
703309 INHIBITORS COMPOUND
The 703309 compound is a liquid concentrate specially formulated to effectively inhibit ferrous parts in aqueous solutions. This
compound dries to a non-tacky, transparent film forming a protective coating which is easily removed with water, but does not have to
be removed before painting, welding or brazing. As it is safe to handle and make a low foam, it is a unique inhibitor for all ferrous
703311 INHIBITORS COMPOUND
The 703311 is a highly concentrated, liquid corrosion inhibitor for all ferrous metals. It dries to a non-tacky, transparent film which
need not be removed prior to painting, welding or bronzing, but may be easily removed with water. Provides rust-inhibition on all
ferrous metals; mild steels – hardened steels – cast iron and sintered iron.
701103 BURNISHING COMPOUND
The 701103 is a mildly acidic, burnishing compound that produces lustrous surfaces on steel, brass, zinc, stainless steel, copper,
aluminum and it’s alloys.
705501 DESCALING COMPOUND
The 705501 has been specially developed to remove tarnish and scale from copper, brass and bronze and develops a very bright finish
on aluminum and zinc. It should be used as a pre-dip to burnishing applications. Even though it has inhibitors for steel, it is not
recommended unless for special applications.
707705 CLEANING COMPOUND
The 707705 is a liquid concentrate designed for use with ferrous metals in deburring applications. It has the ability to prevent rusting
of parts during and after process and to leave parts and media clean. Effective in hard water.
