What is Sandblasting?

Sandblasting, also known as abrasive blasting, is a process that involves forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material against a surface under high pressure. The purpose of sandblasting is to achieve various outcomes, such as smoothing a rough surface, roughening a smooth surface, shaping a surface, or removing surface contaminants. Here are some key points about sandblasting:

  • Sandblasting is typically done using a pressurized fluid, such as compressed air, or a centrifugal wheel to propel the abrasive material, often referred to as the media.
  • The abrasive material used in sandblasting can vary and is not limited to sand. Other materials like crushed glass, aluminum oxide, steel grit, or walnut shells can also be used depending on the desired effect and the surface being treated.
  • Sandblasting can be used for a variety of applications, including cleaning surfaces, removing rust or paint, preparing surfaces for painting or coating, and creating three-dimensional signage or art.
  • The process of sandblasting involves the abrasive particles striking the surface, wearing away excess or unwanted material, and creating a smoother texture.
  • Sandblasting is commonly used in industries such as construction, automotive, and metal finishing.

It’s important to note that sandblasting has evolved over time, and the use of sand as a blasting media is less common due to environmental concerns and the availability of alternative abrasive materials.
