Abrasive Blast Cleaning FAQs

Abrasive blast cleaning is widely used in the industrial sector. It involves propelling an abrasive material against a surface of a particular product. The stream of abrasive material is projected at high speed through a nozzle. This is possible using compressed air. The impact of the abrasive material on the surface leaves behind a clean and dry product onto which a new coating can be applied. This is ideal when you want to remove old paint, rust or other particles. A surface treated with abrasive blast cleaning is more conducive to new coatings and industrial treatment.

Abrasive blast cleaning is a preferred technique of cleaning in most applications. It relies on the use of mechanical forces to deliver a blasting agent on the surface being cleaned at high velocities. The selection of the blasting material will largely depend on the surface being cleaned and the desired effect. There are several options that you will have when you decide to go for abrasive blast cleaning. The cleaning can be done with steel shot and grit, aluminum oxide, glass beads, and even walnut shell. Always consult with an experienced professional to ensure you choose the method most advantageous for your purposes.

There are several applications of abrasive blast cleaning, including its use in restoration processes. It is also commonly used as a surface preparation technique. Before administering paint, coating, welding or any other treatment process, it is standard practice to prep the material first. Abrasive blast cleaning prepares the material by removing any rust, grime or unnecessary particles, thus making it ready for desired treatments.
