When it comes to Rust Removal then Abrasive Blasting might be just what you are after. Abrasive blasting removes rust using a combination of compressed air, water and abrasive material such as recycled glass or granite on the affected rusty surface.
The high velocity of the abrasive material forced out by the compressed air causes the impact of these high velocity particles to strip back rust leaving a clean, ready to paint surface.
Depending on the abrasive blasting material used for the rust removal process will cause small indentations on the steel material which we call surface profile.
There are many grades of material used for rust removal such as 80 grit garnet, 100 grit recycled glass, steel shot etc… The best way to explain these grades are to think of sandpaper. Like garnet and recycled glass, sandpaper has many different grades and if using an 80 grit sandpaper on metal then you will get the same result as using an 80 grit garnet while blasting. The smaller the garnet size then the smother the profile finish. We find either a
We Don’t Just Blast Rust… we stop it dead in its tracks!
