What is sandblasting?

Sandblasting is the process of blasting a high-pressure jet of abrasive material against equipment. The purpose is to smooth a rough surface and remove contaminants such as tar and urethane.

Abrasive blasting makes use of a variety of particles and contaminants to clean the surface of a material. These particles can be propelled in a dry or wet state.

In addition to its power to decontaminate, sandblasting can be used for cleaning. It is perfect for areas where dust management is not a major constraint, although it can also be used to reduce the dust generated by wet blasting.

Choosing the right abrasion method is crucial to obtaining the best results. This means entrusting the cleaning of your industrial equipment to qualified specialists like the team at Solutions Trexo.
