Abrasive blasting is the operation of forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material against a surface under high pressure to smooth a rough surface, roughen a smooth surface, shape a surface or remove surface contaminants. A sandblaster shoots abrasive material at high, medium, or light pressure to remove paint, dust, oil, and dirt. An item can also be sandblasted to remove rust and restore a piece back to it's original form.
We primarily blast with garnet, but also can use other abrasives such as sand, glass bead, walnut shell, and baking soda. The desired media depends on the type and condition of metal that is being restored.
