Will Sandblasting Help with Rust Removal?

Many use chemical-based cleaners and applications to remove rust from surfaces. However, these harsh and polluting chemicals can have an undesirable effect on your surface in the long run, as well as on the environment.

To remove rust from surfaces, we use sandblasting techniques that help to expose pristine steal condition, given that the project is completed by a professional sandblaster with the use of the right equipment. 

Not only we can remove rust using sandblasting in preparation of further treatment of the surface, but also ensure the long-term preservation of your restored metal surface. 

However, using the incorrect media or equipment can have a contradictory outcome for your surface, so always have it done by professionals like ProStrip.

The safest way to remove rust without damaging the surface underneath is to start with the softest sandblasting media and gradually work your way to an abrasive that removes all unwanted materials effectively.

How to Remove Rust from Steel

In restoring rusted steel back to its original condition, at ProStrip Sandblasting, we employ premium abrasives capable of thoroughly cleaning the steel, and removing the toughest rust and corrosion, while complying with Australia’s environmental and health standards.

Before getting rid of rust from the steel, it’s important to note that steel is not a single alloy, but a mixture of iron-based alloys. Each type of steel, therefore, requires sandblasting applications appropriate for its contents and sensitivity to undesirable surface changes.

The removal of rust from steel requires a particular procedure in preparing its surface for further treatment. Here, a sandblaster uses compressed air under a high-pressure to propel abrasive media onto the rusted area on the steel surface. 

The result is that the media essentially etches all rust away and reveals the clean metal without any damage caused by the rust removal process.

All sandblasted rust, residual media and unwanted debris are disposed, and if necessary, the surface is finished with a protective coating as soon as possible.
