vibratory finishing


Whether you are removing large burrs or achieving fine RA finishes we can help you find the right vibratory media for your applications. 

A completely new and improved line of fast-cutting polyester media, designed and formulated to provide a wider range of surface finishes. It contains agents that improve overall performance considerably which are technically superior to standard resin bonded media and urea formaldehyde media.

Our new and improved media also has an average bulk density of 100 pounds per cubic foot. This represents over 35% higher density than standard plastic media and 20% higher density than most ceramic media. It has been designed to reduce standard plastic media process time by 50% while improving surface finish without additional cost. It will also cut as fast as most ceramic media while producing a superior surface without hardening the metal surface.

When used with proper water and compound flow rate, our new and improved vibratory media reduces foaming and allows faster settlement of solids. It will produce a clean surface finish on ferrous, non-ferrous, or plastic components, and it will not fragment.

Bond Description Approximate Weight Color
HD1 Designed to greatly reduce cycle times while producing a superlative pre-plate finish and a very low R.M.S. surface finish. An extremely clean media during and after processing. Formulated for fine finishing of all ferrous, and plastic components. 95 pounds per cubic foot Light Red
HD2 Designed for low Ra finishing, especially aerospace turbine and compressor blades. This media is very clean in process and can be used on all metals and plastic components. 95 pounds per cubic foot Ivory
HD3 Designed for use on components such as stainless steel, forgings, and titanium. It is also suitable for use on most base metals, plastics, and produces a very low R.M.S. finish. 100 pounds per cubic foot Light Blue
HD4 Designed as an extremely fast-cutting media suitable for all materials. It produces low R.M.S. surface and superior pre-plate finishes. It contains NO ALUMINUM OXIDE and should be used when the wear rate is not a prime factor. 100 pounds per cubic foot Light Grey


Low-Density Plastic Vibratory Media

Don’t waste your media or your money. Contact Rodeco to get the exact right media and process to maximize your return on investment. Our plastic vibratory media is manufactured to our own custom-formulated specifications and contains only the finest raw materials available. Low-density media is used within the metal industry for surface preparation and improvement of most metals such as aluminum, brass, copper, zinc, and plastic. Low-density media will reduce distortion, impingement, and burr roll over while producing excellent finishes prior to plating or painting. Fine finishes as well as aggressive cutting can be achieved.
