Blasting information


Glass Bead Blasting

When glass bead blasting a surface in order to clean or strip it, tiny glass beads are forced on to material under lower air pressure than sand blasting. Additionally, blasting with glass beads is a slower process than sand blasting but is much gentler on the material and effectively strips it without causing damage to the material itself. This leads to a fresh, shiny and more polished appearance.



Sand Blasting - 

Sand blasting is achieved by blasting sand on to a metal surface through very high air pressure. Sand blasting is a much quicker process but is also harsher on the underlying metal material. While glass bead blasting does not compromise the metal, sand blasting, similar to sand paper, has the capability of shaping and smoothing the underlying material.
