A Great Finish Starts with Smart Thinking

Mass finishing can be described as integrating process, chemistry, equipment, and media. Luckily, Hubbard-Hall has decades of experience doing exactly that. We’ve been helping manufacturers remove burrs, improve surface quality, clean, descale, and deflash across a wide range of needs and applications. Working directly with your team, our engineers will help you identify the best way to meet your needs. And we’ll always do so with an eye for saving you time and money along the way.

Synergy Between Elements

Hubbard-Hall manufactures a full line of mass finishing compounds designed to work synergistically with the correct equipment and media:

Equipment Types: oblique barrel, vibratory bowl or tubs, centrifugal barrel
Media Types: ceramic, plastic, metal, organic

Mass Finishing Compounds

  • Cleaning Compounds: Designed to remove undesirable surface contamination from parts. The appropriate compound is matched with the metal being cleaned & media being used.
  • Descaling Compounds: Used to remove scale, rust, and oxides from metallic surfaces by using either acidic or alkaline compounds.
  • Deburring Compounds: Designed to assist burr removal by keeping the parts and media clean. Also provides corrosion resistance to the parts and media when required.
  • Burnishing Compounds: Generally used to improve reflectivity or brightness of the metal surface by providing lubricity to the media while cushioning the parts against damage. The compounds may also control part color, remove oxides and prevent corrosion.
  • Cutting Compounds: Formulated to facilitate stock removal by chemically accelerated mass finishing chemistries or by the use of abrasive compounds. Can also be used to remove heavy scales and oxides from metallic surfaces.
