(Dry) Media Blasting Masks

Tangent Industries’ temporary masking materials for dry media blasting are formulated to withstand high velocity impact of organic media, aluminum oxide, cut wire, glass beads, and steel shot. When properly applied and cured with UV light, these masks provide consistent and reliable protection. Tangent’s UV masks’ resiliency and strong adhesion prevents edge lift, which preserves the integrity of the surface being protected.

All Tangent UV masks for dry media blasting are designed to be removed by peeling. The peeling process can be accelerated by incorporating a quick hot water dip/rinse prior to peel. Elevating the temperature of these masks causes them to become more elastic and easier to remove. Multiple viscosities of each product are available to accommodate various dispense methods, which can include dip, spray, or manual application. The masks are offered with a color additive to provide appropriate surface contrast for better visibility of coverage during dispensing and removal.

View the masking materials listed below for a possible candidate for your application. Please contact Tangent to confirm your product selection and to secure additional application assistance, including samples and process recommendations. In the event that these standard products do not satisfactorily address your performance requirements, Tangent will investigate other solutions that include development of masking material specifically tailored to the complexity of your application.
