Traditional Sandblasting

Traditional sandblasting uses dry silica sand, sprayed at high pressure with air, to remove layers of dirt, paint, and other contaminants. This creates a very fine dust particulate that covers surrounding surfaces. This dust is difficult to clean, and very dangerous if too much is breathed in. The resulting affect has a significant impact on the employee, the customer, and the surrounding environment

What Makes Us Different

There are several names you will often hear associated with the services we offer for surface preparation -- sandblasting, media blasting, and bead blasting to name a few. Working in the industry we are conscious of the confusion that can arise from these different names and the key points relating to each. 

While there are some commonalities between the various systems and services associated with those names (all of these share a common goal of using a pressurized abrasive to remove the contaminants from the surface being prepared) there is also a significant difference and benefit to the services we offer with dustless blasting.

Instead of using the traditional medium of sand propelled by high pressure air, we use a glass beads suspended in water. This provides a number of benefits over other means of surface preparation. 

1.

Mixing our blasting medium with water removes the dust associated with sandblasting and other surface preparation techniques.

2.

The use of water reduces the side affect of warping due to friction and heat

3.

The use of water suspended medium allows for a varying the ratio of the medium to water as well as the pressure of the blasting equipment. This allows us to blast and prepare a far broader range of surfaces than our competitors.
