Blasting Abrasives

We can use any abrasive media on the market today to suit the application the client requires. We recommend crushed glass when wet blasting as it is a cost-effective, non-hazardous, recycled, environmentally friendly product with different grades of glass for every application.

Dustless abrasives

Dry abrasive blasting is still a massive part of our business and is readily used in a lot of applications providing similar results as blasting wet but with a dust factor. We can dry blast here at our business address or on-site work providing we can contain the dust the blast produces.

Blasting Methods

Wet abrasive blasting is a water added process to reduce dust and heat whilst still providing the required blast profile. 

Hold Tight 102 – cleaning additive and rust inhibitor can be used on ferrous metals to stop flash rusting before protective coatings are applied when using the Wet system.

Dry abrasive blasting is the most common way of removing paint and rust, preparing it for protective coatings.

  • Crushed Glass – Crushed glass is a good all-round stripping media and are considered generally environmentally safe and economical.
  • Garnet – The grains are especially uniform compared to other grit and are almost entirely free from embedment, another advantage is that it creates far less dust.
