Construction Sandblasting

Construction Sandblasting

Construction sandblasting is a process of using compressed air or water to propel abrasive particles (such as sand, glass beads, or aluminum oxide) at high speed onto a surface to remove contaminants like paint, rust, or other surface coatings from concrete, steel, or other building materials during the construction process. It’s commonly used in the construction industry for cleaning and preparing building surfaces, including metal, concrete, brick, and stone.

The process is used to prepare surfaces for painting or refinishing, or to remove unwanted surface coatings. The goal of sandblasting is to remove rust, paint, dirt, grime, and other coatings, leaving a clean and smooth surface for further treatment. This process is often performed before applying new finishes, such as paint or stucco, to ensure good adhesion and a long-lasting result.

Sandblasting is also used to clean and prepare surfaces for inspection or repair, making it easier to identify and address any issues. Our sandblasting jobs are performed by our trained professionals using specialized equipment, ensuring the safe and efficient removal of contaminants. The sandblasting media used in construction sandblasting is typically made of a harder material to effectively remove tough surface coatings. The process can be messy and disruptive, so proper safety precautions must be taken to minimize the impact on the construction site and protect the workers performing the sandblasting.

Dustless Sandblasting

Dustless sandblasting is a method of sandblasting that uses abrasive materials mixed with water to create a slurry, which is then propelled onto the surface being cleaned or prepared. This method of sandblasting reduces the amount of airborne dust and debris compared to traditional dry sandblasting, making it a more environmentally friendly and safer option for workers and the surrounding area. The water in the slurry also helps to cool the surface being sandblasted, reducing the risk of warping or damage to the surface. Dustless sandblasting can be used for a variety of applications, including cleaning and preparing metal, wood, concrete, and other materials, as well as removing rust, paint, and other coatings. This method is often used in the automotive, construction, and marine industries, among others. Questions? Please Contact Us for more information
