How Sandblasting is Performed
Silica sand is the material often used for sandblasting. The silica sand is poured into the sandblasting machine, where the sand is collected on the chamber on top of the machine. Air compressor, sand blasting gun and hopper on the gun are the three main parts of a sandblasting machine. The machine is connected to a conventional air compressor. When it is activated, the abrasive propels through the nozzle. The pressure of the abrasive can be 50-130 PSI(pound-force per square inch). The abrasive particle is blasted against the object's surface.
Sand is gritty and rough. Since sand has these abrasive properties, the surface becomes smoother. Besides metal surfaces, concrete surfaces are also sandblasted. After pouring the concrete, and allowing it to dry, it's surface is sandblasted. The excess material on its surface is removed using sandblasting, making it’s surface smooth.
Even though our professionals perform sandblast, it's not a long and strenuous process. Before sandblasting, our professionals lay a tarp beneath the surface which is blasted, so that cleaning will be much easier and quicker. Upon completion of the process, the tarp is cleaned, and the extra material is removed.
Types of Sandblasting Processes
Rainbow Powder Coating offers a wide array of surface preparation services, which includes two different types of sand blasting:
Air-driven: During the process, a stream of air propels abrasive particles against an object's surface. Air-driven sandblasting best suits metal surfaces, where it removes rust from the metal surface. Air-driven sandblasting prevents-
- Water intrusion on the surface
- Moisture buildup on the surface.
Water-driven: During the process, pressurised water propels abrasive particles against an object's surface. Water-driven sandblasting reduces surface deterioration. It is ideal for concrete and brick surfaces.
Water-driven sandblasting is ideal for removing the potentially hazardous coating since no dust is released during the sandblasting process.
Sandblasting is often used prior to coating or painting a surface, to ensure lasting adhesion. But sandblasting can be a hazardous process since it releases dangerous particles into the air. This happens when sandblasting is carried out without any proper precautions. Therefore it's important that you choose the right sandblasting professionals. At Rainbow Powder Coating, we have safety trained and insured sandblasting professionals who offer the best surface preparation services.
The type of sandblasting, i.e., air-driven or water-driven, that's right for you depends on the surface that you want to clean. Before we provide our service, we will consult you to decide which type of sandblasting will be more easy and effective. Upon choosing the type of sandblasting method, our sand blasting professionals will arrive at your location, at a specified time.

Benefits of Sandblasting
Sandblasting is the best cleaning method that helps to restore a material back to its original form. The benefits of sandblasting are-
Great surface Preparation- Besides cleaning surfaces, sandblasting is used to prepare a surface before applying various coatings. Sandblasting removes dirt, rust and other contaminants so that the coating will adhere better, and lasts long. The film left after sandblasting prevents rusting in case of metal surfaces.
Safety- The sandblasting process is eco-friendly and non-toxic. The abrasive used in sandblasting is actual sand, which is not harmful. The material used in sandblasting is not dangerous to the environment. Sandblasting materials can be inhaled or touched, and causes no harm to an individual. Disposing of the materials used for sandblasting doesn't cause any harm to the environment.
Easy Process- Other cleaning techniques are lengthy and time-consuming. But sandblasting neither requires heavy-duty cleanup and scrubbing nor harsh chemicals. No complex machinery is used for sand blasting. Sandblasting is a quick and easy process that can be completed within a few hours. Thus you can save a lot of time and money.
Rust Removal- Rust corrodes metal and spreads quickly, causing significant damage. If the rust is left as it is, it will spread to more areas, and damages any type of metal. Rust causes permanent damage if it's not properly treated. Sand blasting easily removes rust from the surface and keeps the material viable for long.
Versatile- Since rust, dirt, residue or any other contaminants can be removed using sandblasting, the surface will look new again. Sandblasting can be not only used for small, precision parts, but it can also be used in cleaning large areas. It can be used in precision parts and delicate surfaces alike. Sandblasting removes dirt and other contaminants, and thus refines and polishes the surface.
Quick Turnaround- Even the toughest cleaning job can be efficiently and quickly completed through sandblasting. This is because silica sand, used as an abrasive, contains fine grains in it. A cleaning process that will normally take hours or days to complete can be quickly done with sandblasting. Since sand blasting can be used for small, precision parts, objects that have more than 2 millimetres cross-section can be easily sandblasted. Mill scale or scale, which is comparatively difficult to remove, can be easily removed using sand blasting.
