Durable Equipment for Effective Sandblasting
Sandblasters shoot a stream of abrasive material at high pressure to modify a surface. The alteration of the surface depends on the type of media used and blasting parameters. Softer media at lower pressure can gently remove coatings. Extremely hard abrasives projected at high pressures can aggressively etch and pattern or carve surfaces. In a nutshell:
- Spherical or round blast media can smooth and harden surfaces.
- Crushed, angular grit can increase surface roughness.
- Soft plastic and organic media can remove paint layers while leaving underlying aluminum, fiberglass, or composite surfaces untouched.
- Soda blasting can remove paint from a steel surface and leave behind a corrosion-resistant film.
