SandblasterIf you prefer not to have to worry about a metal chemical bath to clean your project, sandblasting will come to the rescue. Removing old paint, rust, and debris can be a hassle. Power washing can only do so much, and chemical baths require materials that can be hard to dispose of. To overcome these issues, engineers created a solution: sandblasting. When you need a metal piece thoroughly cleaned with little-to-no effect on the environment, sandblasting is the answer. This is a vital step on the road towards a successful powder coating. With a dedicated sandblasting cabinet, Frank T. is more than equipped to handle it. Read on to learn more about sandblasting and how it can help you!

What is sandblasting?

Sandblasting does not have to actually include sand particles. It can be made from a variety of materials, including walnut shells, silica, and copper slag. With such low-cost materials, sandblasting is very economical. The particles are then fired at a surface using a kind of pressure gun, which wipes away any impurities, including rust and old paint. Sandblasting is widely used across the industry to clean previously painted metal objects, and it easily prepares the surface for powder coating. Without sandblasting, the marred surface could lead to an uneven finish.

What are the benefits of sandblasting?

Sandblasting is cheap, effective, and quick. It acts as a particle power washer, and easily cleans entire surfaces in record time. The materials used are inexpensive, but they can accomplish great things. It can be used on any surface, including previously powder coated ones. Sandblasting is great for multiple projects because many different objects can be sandblasted at once. After blasting, the surface will be smooth and clean, which creates a perfect canvas for powder coating.
