Sand Blasting

Sand Blasting
Sandblasting is a generic term for the process of smoothing, shaping and cleaning a hard surface by forcing solid particles across that surface at high speeds; the effect is similar to that of using sandpaper, but provides a more even finish with no problems at corners or crannies. An artificial sandblasting process was patented by Benjamin Chew Tilghman on October 18, 1870.

Historically, the material used for artificial sandblasting was sand that had been sieved to a uniform size.

Bead blasting
Bead blasting is the process of removing surface deposits by applying fine glass beads at a low pressure without damaging the surface. It is used to clean calcium deposits from pool tiles or any other surfaces, and removes embedded fungus and brightens grout color. This process is notably used as an efficiently popular way to clean tile surfaces in swimming pools. It is also used in auto body work to remove paint.

Dry ice blasting
Dry ice blasting is a process in which dry ice is accelerated in a pressurized air stream and directed at a surface in order to clean it. The method is similar to sand blasting, plastic bead blasting, or soda blasting but substitutes dry ice as the blasting medium. Dry ice blasting leaves no chemical residue as dry ice sublimates at room temperature.

Zinc Cut Wire Shot
Zinc Cut Wire Shot is an efficient abrasive media produced in either 99.95% pure zinc or alloyed for your special requirements.

Deburring and deflashing of zinc or aluminum die cast parts in both wet and dry operations.Removal of impregnated sand from sand castings.

Zinc Cut Wire Shot will not damage soft-alloy cast parts and in most cases, parts need no other cleaning prior to a plating process. Zinc Cut Wire Shot creates less dust than either steel or aluminum abrasives. Provides temporary galvanic protection. A thin film of zinc up to 1.3 microns is deposited onto cast parts which will temporarily protect parts from corrosion. Reusable and recyclable. Does not flash rust or red rust during storage. No premature breakdown or flaking. Will not cause excessive wear and tear on finishing equipment.

Plastic Shot /
It is a custom engineered, dry stripping abrasive for fast, safe, low-cost surface cleaning and coatings removal (a process known as Plastic Media Blasting). It belongs to the family of dry stripping abrasives and is non-toxic, operator-safe, and inflicts no damage on finished surfaces. Unlike more traditional cleaning media, it is a non-polluting, long-lasting and recyclable plastic that completely eliminates the need for sandblasting or dangerous chemicals. Developed more than a generation ago, it is also acclaimed for its positive impact on the problems of air pollution, toxic waste and worker safety

Sodablasting is a process where sodium bicarbonate is applied against a surface using compressed air. It was first used to restore the Statue of Liberty.

Sodablasting is a non-destructive method for many applications in cleaning, paint stripping, automotive restoration, industrial equipment maintenance, rust removal, graffiti removal, molecular steel passivation against rust, oil removal by saponification and translocation, masonry cleaning and restoration, soot remediation, boat hull cleaning, food processing facilities and equipment.
