Abrasive blasting

Dry and wet sandblasting, soda blasting

Abrasive blasting is the process of propelling an abrasive at high speeds across a surface in order to:

  • Clean and remove rust from surface
  • Strip off paint and other coatings
  • Create a rough, anti-slip surface on stone and concrete.
  • Prepare the surface for painting or coating

Compared to traditional sanding, abrasive blasting has the following advantages:

  • Preserves the surface (chalet, walls, furniture, etc…)
  • Opens up the wood grain, contributing to deeper penetration of coating
