Sandblasting can remove paint, rust, and residue from oxidation from materials quickly and efficiently. Sandblasting can also be used to change the condition of a metal's surface, such as through removing scratches or casting marks. Sandblasting as a cleaning method has been widely used for over a hundred years.
Sandblasting cleans the surface of the project to remove any debris, grease or previous paint coatings, using an abrasive medium. This technique creates small scratches in the surface, which helps paint cover and bond with the material. Without sandblasting, paint may be more prone to chips and cracks.
