5 Good Reasons Why You Should Use Sandblasting

Posted on: August 30th, 2018 by byersbushblog

Sandblasting is one of the most common and highly effective methods for the cleaning and maintenance of surfaces. The restoration of surfaces is achieved by striking fine grains of sand at a very high speed through the sandblaster’s nozzle and directly onto the object being cleaned. Need to repaint or refurbish equipment, machinery or a piece of equipment and make it look new again? Worried about safety and health issues? Need the work done faster? Here are 5 compelling reasons why you should consider using sandblasting for your next project.b

  1. Re-polish Rusty Equipment

Blast cleaning is arguably the most effective solution in rust removal. Metal is easily oxidized by rust and will damage your precious equipment. Rust is one of the leading causes of property damage for its corrosive nature and quick spread to other metals, possibly irreversible. A proper sandblasting service would do magic to your rusty equipment, making it look new and fresh all over again. Refurbishing can never be easier, in addition to a prolonged lifespan of your property.

  1. Produces Smooth Surface for Painting Work

One of the best sandblaster uses is for painting. Sandblasting is a very time-saving and great method for surface smoothing, especially when the object has been painted several times. The accumulation of paint layers may cause bumps and rough areas. Sandblasting helps remove all traces of previous work evenly and prepares the equipment for repainting.

  1. Removes Oil and Contaminants

When manual cleaning is no longer able to wipe out stubborn contaminants as a result of prolonged use, a good blast cleaning service will help clean out many equipment that accumulate oil in their usage. There are no harmful chemicals involved, so your equipment is well protected. The automotive and other oil-using related industries would most benefit from using sandblasting.

  1. Non-Toxic and Safe

Various cleaning procedures have many steps and usually involve using harmful and harsh chemicals, presenting dangerous and sometimes hazardous potentials for the person doing the work. Some may cause breathing problems and skin inflammation and other risks, including environmental issues. Sandblasting, on the other hand, is a power washing technique that utilizes non-toxic materials, safe for your equipment and the environment. There is no extra preparation time to safeguard your stuff because sandblasting will not damage strong, durable, good quality industrial equipment during the cleaning process.

  1. Saves Time

Want to be very productive with minimal downtime? Try sandblasting. A manual cleaning job that takes hours to complete may be done in a matter of minutes through a blast service. Sandblasting drives pollutants away from almost any surface quickly. It is also very efficient and precise, parts with a cross-section of two millimeters or more can be sandblasted instantaneously.

Sandblasting is also the fastest method to clean out old paint and other coatings and strip metals to bare surfaces. Scale, corrosion, old paint and other surface materials can be removed in a matter of minutes, leaving metal surfaces free of foreign substance and contamination.

From cleaning precision parts to reclaiming surfaces, sandblasting is an important technique in improving the appearance and operation of your equipment, retouching old-deteriorating surfaces, and increasing your equipment’s lifespan.

This is particularly useful if you have a large operation or a lot of equipment that needs cleaning.
