Abrasive blasting is valuable as an efficient, high quality method of surface penetration. No other method of metal cleaning allows better control of the surface preparation or cleans the surface as thoroughly. By beginning with a screened abrasive, you control and obtain a consistent profile on the targeted surface. This clean, etched surface aids in adhesion and allows the coating to lock onto the surface.
We can sandblast up to 20'x40' with your choice of media:
Where is Sandblasting Used?
The sandblasting process can be used effectively on steel, iron, copper, brass, aluminum and glass. Sandblasting can be used to clean up fabricated parts, structural steel, castings, pipes (inside and out) pipe fittings, auto body parts and machine parts. This process can also be used on new materials to remove rust, paints, stains and glues. Sand blasting works for automotive restoration.
Is Sandblasting Environmentally Safe?
Sandblasting equipment typically consists of a chamber in which sand and air are mixed. The mixture travels through a hand-held nozzle to direct the particles toward the surface or work piece. So other materials have been developed for this process such as carborundum grit, steel shots, copper slag, powdered slag, glass beads, metal pellets, dry ice, and powdered abrasives of various grades, and even ground coconut shells, corncobs, walnut shells, and baking soda.
