There are a wide variety of materials that can be used to perform grit-blasting, depending on the surface you wish to work on. Each one has its own unique merit when preparing different surfaces and for different finishes. Used mostly to smooth down surfaces and walls, it can also be used for graffiti removal! Silicon carbide, Alumina and even walnut shells can be involved in the process of grit blasting, these materials will protect your surfaces whereas shot blasting would be too excessive.
Some people ask why do some people refer to blast cleaning? Blast-cleaning can mean sand-blasting, shot-blasting, grit-blasting, soda-blasting and basically any other form of cleaning where an abrasive material is forced onto a surface for some form of preparation
We have Many years experience in Sandblasting, shot blasting, blast cleaning and we can introduce water with our water induction blasting for dust sensitive areas.
Sand-blasting – Sandblasting is now carried out with different grades of glass, mineral and grit abrasives as it is no longer legal to use sand due to the harmful silica.
Shot-blasting – Used for steel and other types of ferrous metals; shot blasting is great for preparation on surfaces prior to primer coat and/or painting (which we can also do for you).
Grit-blasting – Used for walls and areas which less intense cleaning, this is great for preparation of walls prior to sealing etc.
