Hardwood Tumbling Media is a unique product. Unlike wet tumbling medias, Hardwood Media is exclusively used for dry tumbling. The Hardwood Media is available in a variety of shapes and size; though, Pegs and Cubes are most popular. The Hardwood Media is charged or treated with a Finishing Cream depending on the step in the process being run. Once a batch of Hardwood Media is treated with a Cream, it is only used with that Cream. Specifics about the Hardwood Tumbling Media can be found here.
The Premium Treated Tumbling Media products are the hallmark of dry tumbling and dry finishing. These products are formulated using a foundation of a variety of different abrasive grit products. The base is treated with lubricants, abrasive or polishing additives, and binders. These work together to produce light cutting action or very high polishes on metals and plastics. These are ready-to-use products and not Compounds or other agents are added. Details about this unique line of products can be found here.
In addition to Hardwood Media and Treated Tumbling Media, there are many instances where untreated medias are used in dry tumbling. Medias like Walnut Shell Grit and Corn Cob Grit can be used for economical light polishing and drying of parts. More abrasive medias like Aluminum Oxide Grit can provide deburring and deflashing. The opportunities available using dry tumbling are nearly endless once the wide variety of General Tumbling Media are considered.
