Our Sand Blasting Process

Our sandblasting process is a meticulously executed procedure that combines precision, expertise, and state-of-the-art equipment to deliver outstanding results. Our team of skilled professionals follows a structured approach to ensure that every surface is thoroughly cleaned and properly prepared for painting.

  • Surface Assessment: Our experienced technicians conduct a thorough assessment of the surface to determine its condition, the type of contaminants present, and the appropriate pressure and abrasive material needed for the job. This initial evaluation is crucial in customizing our approach to each project and achieving optimal results.
  • Preparation: Prior to sandblasting, we take meticulous care to mask off and protect any areas that are not intended to be treated. Our team also implements safety measures to protect both our technicians and the surrounding environment during the sandblasting process.
  • Abrasive Selection: Based on the surface material and the extent of cleaning required, we carefully select the appropriate abrasive material for the sandblasting process. Our wide range of abrasive options allows us to tailor our approach to each project.
  • Sand Blasting Execution: With all preparations in place, our skilled technicians skillfully execute the sandblasting process, using advanced equipment to propel the abrasive material at high velocities onto the surface. The controlled abrasion effectively removes rust, corrosion, old coatings, and contaminants, leaving behind a clean and properly prepared surface for painting.
