Precision Masking Design with Siemens NX or Customer Provided Part

Utilizing Siemens NX design software, Airex engineers accurately design each mask to your exact specifications, ensuring a perfect fit with your customer provided parts or models. This results in exceptional precision and adherence to even the tightest tolerances.

Rapid Application and Residue-Free Removal

Airex masks seamlessly snap onto parts in mere seconds, eliminating the time-consuming and labor-intensive process of manual masking tape application. Moreover, they can be removed effortlessly without leaving any residue, further refining the surface treatment workflow.

Enhanced Productivity and Reduced Rework

Traditional Tape masking methods often lead to inconsistencies and rework, especially for critical and complex parts. Airex masks address these challenges head-on, dramatically reducing rework and scrap rates. This, in turn, enhances productivity and overall cost savings and improves lead time for your customers. Plus, with our masks, anyone can use them – no need to rely on just one person.

Reusable, Repeatable, and Versatile

Airex has developed a range of specialized compounds for different processes. Through partnerships with major customers in the Defense/Aerospace industries. Airex masks are engineered for long-lasting performance, offering reusability over and over again. Their repeatable design ensures consistent results, regardless of the operator, making them a valuable asset for any surface treatment operation.
