It’s important to work with a team that knows what they are doing when it comes to shot blasting and this kind of abrasive cleaning. Choosing the right method is vital as is having the appropriate training for staff who are carrying it out.
Abrasive blasting is a highly skilled undertaking and requires a deft touch, especially when dealing with delicate car or motorcycle parts. Essentially, a stream of abrasive material is propelled against the metal under high pressure. This can vary from sand to soda and which method is chosen will depend on what the material is and what the final finish is intended to be.
Abrasive blasting can be used, for example, to smooth out surfaces that have become rough over time. If you are intending to prime and paint a service, abrasive blasting is designed to clear the surface of old paint and rust. The process can also be successfully used to clean surfaces of contaminants or erosion caused by age.
The job of the shot blaster here is to make sure that they clean the surface without damaging it. The last thing you want if you own an expensive classic car, for example, is your garage choosing the wrong method of stripping the paintwork.
