New and reconditioned, engineered to applications

Sandblasting, also known as bead blasting, is one of most effective ways to "strip" a surface of paint, rust, dirt, grease or any other foreign material. Other uses for sandblasting are removing etching (glass or stone) and for materials that show a weathering look. Sandblasting helps to rejuvenate the material and start the process of making it look new again.

Sandblasting Process

Sandblasting uses compressed air to "blast" fine sand or other very abrasive, high grit material through a nozzle and at the objected to be sandblasted. These abrasive materials quickly remove the surface of the object leaving a clean matte surface. Some of the grits available from Electro-Coatings are listed below.

  • Aluminum Oxide (all grits)
  • Aluminum Zerconia
  • Glass Bead
  • Sand (all grits)
