What is industrial blasting?
Also known as abrasive blasting, industrial blasting is an essential process for many industries that involves the use of particles to make changes to the surface of a chosen object. This can help smooth out imperfections, prepare the material for further treatment, adjust its shape and finish, or for a range of other mechanical reasons
This is commonly carried out by using fine-grade particles that rub or abrade the surface of the material in question. These are commonly propelled through the use of compressed air, centrifuges, or hybrid units.
As with many industrial processes, there is a high degree of variance in how the material is applied and the grade used. Some industrial abrasive blasting methods use sand, walnut shells, or glass to deal with more sensitive materials and produce a finer finished project. Others use metal shot to help strip away rust or imperfections on a hard metal surface – letting you improve the look and material composition of a piece without damage.
