Advanced Finishing is the largest distributor of resin bonded media in North America. With production levels surpassing 3,000,000 pounds annually, we have the experience to develop and improve processes that can compete with the lower cost methods. In fact, because resin bonded medias density is generally 50-60% that of ceramic, the net cost is usually less than its ceramic counterpart. Its low density offers excellent surface refinement on ferrous metals or plastics where material removal is needed, yet, impingement cannot be tolerated.
Plastic media is also used more and more on applications such as die castings and machined products due to its ability to resist chipping and fracturing, which is a common problem of ceramic media due to its bonding characteristics which can cause lodging nightmares.
