Sandblasting is the process of which an abrasive material is accelerated through a blast nozzle & large hose by means of compressed air. It can be a light, medium or heavy blast depending what is required. There are few different materials that can be used for sandblasting we prefer to use garnet. Garnet is environmentally friendly & very effective. So it is safe to use anywhere, it is non toxic & won’t contaminate water ways. It can be used for wet or dry blasting.
The first step in any sandblasting project is determining what sort of equipment and materials should be employed for the task. Professional equipment comes in many different varieties, and the blasting media does, too. Organic material like corncob and walnut shells and very soft materials like pumice may be the most appropriate blasting media to use on more delicate substrates like wood or fiberglass; more aggressive blasting media like plastic abrasives, glass beads, aluminum oxide, steel grit, and silicon carbide can be used to scour, etch, and even cut very strong surfaces like steel. The particular task you wish to perform will determine the preferred blasting media and most appropriate equipment.
No matter what kind of job we’re performing or what kind of media we are using, any sandblasting job that does not take place inside a specialized sandblasting cabinet will be a messy operation. That’s why our state of the art facility is fully equipped with a cabinet and proper tools.
As any professional will tell you: Sandblasting is a process that takes practice to perform properly. We have been doing this for over 10 years and have completed countless jobs for some of the best clients in the area.
As you can see, even these basic steps require a high degree of knowledge and a fair amount of experience to accomplish successfully (without even getting into clean-up). This is one of the main reasons why so few homeowners choose to do this job themselves.
You can call us anytime, there’s no job too big or too small.
