Sandblasting, also known as abrasive blasting, involves spraying abrasive particles of sand against a surface at high pressure. It is commonly used to remove existing paint, coatings, rust and contaminants, though can also be utilised to create a smoother surface or roughen an already smooth surface.
Materials that can be sandblasted include metal, concrete, stone, timber, brick and wood. Painted buildings, plaster and wall surfaces can be sandblasted to effectively remove the existing coatings to prepare for the application of new finishes. Paint and stain can also be removed from timber, leaving behind the original timber.
Depending on the desired outcome, sandblasting can be used to create various finishes and decorative effects. Particularly for concrete surfaces, the intensity of the blast creates different textures, with a light blast resulting in a smooth finish and a heavy blast resulting in an exposed aggregate finish.
The team at All Districts Coatings are highly trained in the sandblasting process and adhere to the strictest safety protocols, to ensure the safety of all involved. All Districts Coating will work to your specifications and provide you with a suitable solution to achieve the desired outcome.
We are also highly skilled in high pressure cleaning if sandblasting is not the most suitable technique for your job. High pressure cleaning is quite simply using water that is expelled at a high pressure to remove dirt, grime, dust, chewing gum, mould and stains.
We use the highest quality equipment to clean exterior walls, roofs, flooring, driveways, pathways, fences, decks, patios, etc. We have successfully conducted high pressure cleaning for industrial, commercial and residential projects.
High pressure cleaning is generally cheaper than sandblasting and takes less time to complete. It can be more successful in removing contaminants and does not usually alter the surface like sandblasting. However, depending on the surface material and desired outcome, sandblasting may be the better option. For e.g. if you are looking to remove paint, then sandblasting will achieve this more effectively. The team at All Districts Coating specialise in both high pressure cleaning and sandblasting, and can help you determine which technique will satisfy your job requirements best.
