trinco_OTRIN MIXES

TRIN MIXES

Trinco’s exclusive combination of glass bead and aluminum oxide delivers fast and efficient cutting action while maintaining close tolerance and a fine satin finish. With three grades to choose from, one will be the solution to your cleaning/finishing application.

TRIN-MIX # 4:

The finest of the Trin-Mixes, Trin­-Mix # 4 is ideal for removing light to medium contamination from tools, tooling, molds and dies. It is considered a general purpose media which can be used in a wide range of applications from texturing plastic injection molds to providing appealing finishes on exposed stainless steel and aluminum surfaces. Dimensional change of less than .001 inch can be expected.

TRIN-MIX # 2:

Somewhat more aggressive than Trin-Mix # 4, Trin-Mix # 2 promotes faster cleaning and a slightly rough finish. Ideal for heavier contamination where a dimensional change of minus .001 inch is acceptable.

RAD-MIX:

This is the most aggressive of the Trin­-Mixes. Although developed for the radiator rebuilding industry, it is ideal for removing tough contamination from surfaces with a minus .001 inch tolerance or better.

  • Heavy # 2
  • Fine # 4

trinco_OTRIN BEADS

TRIN-BEADS (Glass Beady:

A very popular media used primarily for dimensionally sensitive applications where tolerance and finish are your main concern. It is used widely by automotive rebuilders, die and mold makers, the plating and aircraft-aerospace industries. Trin-Beads are perfect for removing medium to light contamination without causing dimensional change, over­stressing, imbedding or pitting. Mesh sizes range from extra coarse # 3 (20-30 mesh) to extra fine # 13 (170-325 mesh). Following are descriptions of typical applications:

COARSE – BT # 3 & 4:

Good for cleaning heavier contamination and peening for stress.

MEDIUM COARSE BT # 5, # 6, & # 7:

Good for engine rebuilding, mold texturing, and peening of softer metals.

MEDIUM – BT # 8, # 9, # 10:

Good for plating, anodizing preparation, and most general applications.

FINE – BT # 12 & # 13:

Good for cleaning light contamination and wherever a fine surface finish is desired.
