There are many reasons you may require sandblasting such as cleaning brickwork or render to even a swimming pool. You can sandblast exposed concrete, protective coatings and hardwood timber.
Two common types of sandblasting techniques are used these are dry blasting and wet blasting, our sandblasting specialist will advice on the best one to use for your project.
Bead Blasting (for soft metals)
Low pressure Cleaning (for glass etching)
High Pressure Cleaning
Blast Track Blasting (for floors)
What is blast cleaning?
Blast Cleaning or commonly known as sand blasting or grit blasting is worked from an air compressor which pumps air into a ‘Blasting Pot’ which holds abrasive grit, a mixture of grit and air is forced down a pipe and out of to clean the item.
Variable air pressures is a must on all blast cleaning jobs from glass etching to delicate and soft metals such as alloy or even car panels.
What’s Multi-media Abrasive?
Derwent blasting uses a multitude of different grits for different jobs.
For example we would not use a course abrasive to blast clean your 1960’s split screen Morris Minor – because it would do more damage than a machine gun – nor use a hard abrasive to blast wood as it would splinter and crack.
