Sandblasting


We have a brand new state of the art Sand Blasting Booth which has dimensions of 4m (W) x 6.5m (L) x 3.3m (H) with a full recovery floor allowing us to blast continuously so that your job is turned around in a timely fashion.

Sand blasting or bead blasting 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. Sandblasting can occur naturally, usually as a result of particles blown by wind causing aeolian erosion, or artificially, using compressed air. An artificial sandblasting process was patented by Benjamin Chew Tilghman on October 18, 1870.

Sandblasting equipment typically consists of a chamber in which sand and air are mixed. The mixture travels through a hand-held nozzle to direct the particles toward the surface or work piece.
