Blast Finishing

Blast finishing provides the power required in order to lift heavy surface materials or the precision to remove print from paper without penetrating the paper. This process can be used to prepare, modify or finish a surface.

When surface finishing, the process removes surface contamination and aids in creating a specific finish on a range of surfaces. Alternatively, blast finishing can be used as a surface preparation process as it roughens surfaces until they are ready for the application of paint and removes any irregularities in the surface.

When looking to modify a surface, blast finishing lessens susceptibility to stress corrosion and can even be used in order to correct distortion. You might also use it to shape structural steel.

Blast finishing can:

  • achieve a matte or satin finish
  • decorate or frost a surface
  • remove glare
  • blend imperfections
  • hone and burnish
  • mark identifications

Blast finishing can also clean or remove:

  • adhesives
  • burrs
  • carbon deposits
  • casting media
  • coatings
  • excess brazing
  • paint
  • rust/oxidation
  • sealants

There are limitless finishes achievable with blast finishing. Only a few variables need to be altered slightly in order to dramatically change the results.
