What are Finishing compounds?
Finishing compounds are a mixture of liquid or dry powder chemicals used in water, with media, to perform a variety of tasks.
This list of tasks include:
Each of the above factors can play a major role in processing products. For instance, in some machine processes, foam can be beneficial by assisting in protecting fragile parts from damage by acting as a cushion between the parts. Whereas in a different machine process, foam can be the enemy. It can reduce or completely eliminate the finishing action of the media.
There are a number of ways to add compounds to a machine. The two most common are a batch method and a flow-through method. A batch addition is mostly used on closed machines. Think of it like a washing machine or dishwasher. The machine is loaded with a compound and water, and once the process cycle is over, the compounds and water are purged. The flow-through system pumps measured doses continually at a pre-determined flow, which continually drains as the cycle runs.
Determining the type and amount of compound can be just as important as determining which process and media to use. Too much compound can eliminate the aggressiveness of the media, extending cycle times substantially. Too little compound can result in incomplete cleaning, damaged parts, smut build up, lessened corrosion protection, etc.
