Abrasive blasting is a cleaning process during which abrasives are propelled towards a surface at high-speeds. The abrasive media scrapes oxidation, burrs, flash and other unwanted particles from the metal, leaving the metal ready for further processing.  The type of abrasive will vary with the delicacy of the items to be blasted, the desired surface finish, cosmetic appeal and extent of the material to be removed.

Abrasive blasting is used primarily in the following cleaning processes:

  • Corrosion Removal (descaling) - removal of rust and mill scale
  • Coating Removal - removal of coating prior to a new coating process.
  • Deburring - removal of unwanted sharp edges and burrs.
  • Deflashing - removal of the excess material formed when metal parts are created using a mold.

We stock Aluminum Oxide and Glass Bead media; however others are available upon request.
