Industries that benefit from sand blasting
Metalworking - Painting a surface just emphasises any imperfection on a metal's surface, which is the reason why sand blasting is so useful. The sand is able to shave off any rough areas, leaving the welder with a perfect and gleaming surface to paint over.
Architectural - Abrasive blasting will get rid of an entire wall of graffiti, clean a street corner, or refurb an entire building. This process helps to create sculptures and other works of art, making it ideal for engineers and architects.
Medical - Sand blasting is vital in the medical field. There is no room for error when you are dealing with the health and wellbeing of others. You want to ensure everything is sanitary after each use which can be achieved with abrasive blasting for cleaning equipment such as cardiac pacemakers and surgical tools.
How does the process work?
Abrasive blasting has been around for a long time, expelling sand (or other materials) and air through a pressurised gun to remove a number of substances off the desired surface. Crushed shells, glass, and dry ice have also been used in the past to achieve similar results.
While some may think that sand blasting has one purpose, it can also be used to smooth and improve a metal's surface. This includes getting rid of scratches which makes it an excellent tool for metalworking. This process will achieve results on a smaller scale such as cleaning rust off of household appliances too.
