If you’ve got a tough cleaning problem, Construction Systems has a cleaning solution. Sandblasting can be the answer for certain cleaning projects. In this process, sand is applied with the force of compressed air or steam against a surface that needs to be cleaned. As compared to soda blasting, using a sandblaster is a more abrasive process, so the sand blasting operator must take care not to damage the substrate of the article being sandblasted.
The sand blaster was developed in the 1800s. Today, Construction System offers the sandblasting service to clean a surface of paint and debris in preparation for a fresh coat of paint or sealant. Basically, the sandblasters knock loose the medium you want removed from an object, such as paint, which can then be washed away. The surface that is revealed by the sandblasting technique is super smooth, ready to be primed and painted. Sandblasting can be used on large projects such as cleaning bridges and the hulls of ships.
For home use, sandblasting has been used to remove paint from a concrete driveway, to remove paint from cupboards, to clean stone on the exterior of a home and to clean stone on a stone fireplace. As a side note, sandblasting is also used in the art of glass decorating to both etch and carve the glass.
Construction Systems is happy to discuss with you your project and whether or not sand blasting would be the correct cleaning technique for your medium.
