What is Sandblasting?

Many refer to ‘sandblasting’ as a type of ‘abrasive blasting’. With that being true, there is a difference between the two as they each hold different types of blasting techniques and technologies.

While both abrasive blasting and sandblasting are cleaning techniques used in surface preparation, abrasive blasting uses abrasive media such as glass beads, bicarbonate of soda or plastic media against surface materials, whereas sandblasting uses fine sand. Although abrasive blasting may require harder media for coarse surfaces, it will not be able to harm the material as long as the correct process and abrasive particle size is used on the particular material texture. For example, glass bead blasting is designed for use on stainless steel. Depending on the specific requirements, abrasive blasting can, therefore, be done from fine to coarse finishes.

According to ProStrip sandblasting owner and Melbourne sandblaster Dominic Matiasik, “Sandblasting is a process whereby sand is propelled by compressed air or steam under high pressure against a rough surface to smoothen it for further preparation and reconditioning. The best part about using pressures of sand to recondition a surface is that the abrasive grit used is unable damage to the material, in comparison to the impacts of more conventional forms of surface preparation.

During the blasting process, the sand abrasive is directed with the use of a nozzle, which our professional and qualified sandblasters in Melbourne will use to aim at the targeted surface requiring cleaning.

The advantages of sandblasting are:

  1. The end result provides a finer surface finish for any coatings to bond to.
  2. The life of the coating increases tremendously.

However, each blasting technique used is unique to the blasting requirement. Due to Australia’s Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act and Regulations, we use specialised technologies and sandblasting techniques dependent on the type of equipment or surface requiring blasting, as well as the environment in which the blasting is taking place.
ProStrip Sandblasting is an eco-friendly brand, which means we consider all impacts of blasting and abrasive media on the environment and ways in which we can avoid those impacts. Australia’s Office of Industrial Relations has set out an official “Abrasive blasting Code of Practice 2021”, which can be viewed here.

Along with our high-quality standards, you can rest assure that ProStrip Sandblasting prides itself on having been built on these blasting Regulations and practices over the last 10-years. This is what makes our sandblasting services in Melbourne unique!

How Does Sandblasting Work?

There are different blasting techniques used to achieve different appearances depending on the material and the surface preparation goal thereof.

During the sandblasting process, finely ground silica sand is used to abrade an unwanted surface material. There are different levels of blasting used to remove the top layer of the surface requiring blasting; from light blasting to medium or heaving blasting to remove more of the layer.

This is done by means of compressed air-pressure or air-pressurized tank that fires out the sand with high impact, through a blast nozzle and large hose, at the appropriate surface. The end result is a fine surface which is ready for further treatment.
