How to Get the Most Out of Your Coating Through Dry Abrasive Blasting in Southern California

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

Before any major painting job, it’s important to remember adequate surface preparation. Surface preparation plays a key role in determining the success of any coating project. It can create a better bond between the surface and the paint, leaving a fresh look for many years.


Dry abrasive blasting is one method of surface preparation. This type of blasting is an industrial process that involves forcibly spraying fine material onto an area to remove contaminants. It is also known as grit blasting or sand blasting. Professionals use high-powered equipment to store the materials under high pressure and spray when needed. These materials may include sand, pressured air, fine glass particles and even baking soda (an earth-friendly medium). Here are some of the many benefits of dry abrasive blasting:

 

• Removes corrosion, paint, coatings and environmental pollution build-up

• Prepares surface without causing damage to the area

• Blasting professionals can cover large and hard to reach areas in a short amount of time

• Cleans more thoroughly and more deeply than many other techniques

• Eliminates the need for any hard sanding

• Free of harsh chemicals

• Provides an excellent source for bonding

 

Painting and surface preparation can be challenging, so you might want to consider professional assistance.
