Frequently Asked Questions
Sandblasting is a general term used to describe the method of blasting fine particles of media using compressed air. Sandblasting has been used for years as a surface preparation technique. When painting a surface, one does not want dirt, dust or bubbles trapped in previous layers of paint or any imperfections under the new layer of paint. When sandblasted, the surface will be smooth, clean and prepared for paint or any other coating.
Dustless blasting is when water is mixed in with the media, which produces less dust than dry sandblasting. Sometimes dry sandblasting is not permitted in certain areas, making dustless blasting a wonderful alternative.
Yes, metal objects can be sandblasted. Depending on the thickness of the metal, we can decide on the best media for the job. For example, if you have a vehicle that still has the chrome or windows attached, the best media to use would be soda blasting. This media takes the paint and imperfection off without damage to the chrome or windows.
