When you call to discuss your project, our knowledgeable consultant can help you decide whether dry or wet blasting best suits your needs and which media to use. Dry sandblasting is a more aggressive process and is recommended for use on hard metals where you are looking for a specific finish. Another advantage of dry sandblasting has over wet, is that there is no risk of flash rusting as the process does not make use of water. Furthermore, although it does create a high level of dust, dry blasting does not create a muddy sludge which wet blasting does.

Sandblasting is not only used for cleaning. It is frequently used to achieve a certain finish. Depending on the type of abrasive used, the hardness of the substrate and the application method, you can achieve anything from a texturised finish to a satin finish on your component. Abrasive blasting is also used to prepare items for:

  • Painting
  • Powder coating
  • Rubber bonding
  • Electroplating
  • And more
