What is Abrasive Blasting?
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. Pressurised
air is used to propel the blasting material (called media)
Shot blasting is the cleaning and de-scaling metal by shot peening or by means of a stream of abrasive powder blown through a nozzle under air pressure in the range 30-150 pounds per square inch (200-1000 kilo Pascal).
Bead blasting is the process of removing surface deposits by applying fine glass beads at a high pressure without damaging the surface. It is used to clean calcium deposits from pool tiles or any other surfaces, and removes embedded fungus and brighten grout colour. It is also used in auto body work to remove paint.
