Restoring the Value of Your Old Equipment with Sandblasting

Posted on: March 24th, 2016 by byersbushblog

Sand blasting is one of the best ways to bring old equipment back to life and to extend the lifespan of your most important tools and machines as well. This is a service that really doesn’t cost that much to pay for, and one that will give you results you are thrilled with.

Imagine how your equipment would look after having all that grime, rust, grease and everything else removed from the surface. You will take that old worn equipment and bring it back to life leaving you with something that you can be proud of.

Extend the Lifespan of Equipment

Once rust starts to set in on metal equipment, it’s pretty much over. The corrosion will eat through the body of the metal and leave you with brittle objects that aren’t reliable any longer and certainly aren’t attractive to look at.

In order to help extend the life of your equipment you need to have all that corrosion removed before it has a chance to spread throughout all your equipment. You can sand or grind most of it off yourself, but who really has time to tackle all the little bits of corrosion around your equipment.

A much more effective way to tackle the problem is to hire a pro to sandblast the equipment and to take care of most of the corrosion. The process is faster and the corrosion will be more completely eradicated as well.

Remove Contaminants

Contaminants like grease, tar and other sticky substances are very difficult to remove from metal tools or machinery. To do this on your own you will likely have to rely on harsh chemicals and a lot of elbow grease. Not only is trying to remove this stuff an unpleasant process, but you likely won’t get rid of all the contaminants in the end anyway.

Instead of suffering through the process only to end up with results that you aren’t thrilled with in the first place, you should hire a professional to sandblast away the imperfections. Grease and other contaminants can be removed effortlessly with powerful sandblasting equipment and you will be amazed at what your equipment looks like underneath all that grime.

Enjoy a High Quality Protective Coating

It is really difficult to protectively coat tools and equipment that are covered in grease, grime and corrosion. These items have to be scrubbed harshly and then often need to be ground down using special equipment before they can be coated again. This is a time consuming process and you still end up with results that you aren’t proud of. That is why it makes a lot of sense to pay for sandblasting services.

When you have your equipment sandblasted, all the deformations are removed effectively so that you have a nice smooth surface left over in the end. This surface is slightly rough and paint or a powder coat adheres to it very nicely.

You will end up with a more consistent coating when you go with this solution and satisfied with the end results if you spend the added money to have a professional clean off your equipment first before getting it protectively coated.

If you have some old equipment that you want restored, one of your first steps in the process should be hiring a professional powder coater to tackle the task. He can remove dirt and grime that you didn’t even realize was there in the first place, and leaves you with a product that you are supremely proud of.

That is the type of thing that you can get really excited about, and companies that offer these types of services aren’t that expensive to work with either, as long as you are working with one of the good suppliers like Byers Bush.
