Sandblasting Questions – Asked and Answered

– What is sandblasting?  During sandblasting (a/k/a abrasive blasting), tough surfaces are powerfully cleaned, crafted, or smoothed with a high-speed stream of air and solid particles. Double R’s professionals propel the stream toward a piece to create a desired effect.

– How does it work? First, air and solid particles (i.e., sand, grains, granulated bits) are mixed in the chamber of Double R’s high-quality sandblasting equipment.  Then our skilled artisans point the sandblasting equipment’s nozzle toward the surface of the piece (a sturdy material, such as steel) and forcibly blast that abrasive mixture to clean, craft, or smooth the piece.

– When is sandblasting done? Sandblasting has diverse purposes and is used in many industries.  In addition to cleaning off dirt, rust, corrosion, and contaminates – sandblasting also smooths a rough surface to improve the successfulness of sealants, coatings, or other applications.  Double R’s sandblasting experts can also use this technique to forcibly shape a surface or etch designs.

– Why choose sandblasting? This surface treatment process is suitable for cleaning and giving new life to old pieces or creating an array of new materials and types of equipment. At Double R Manufacturing, we also emphasize the benefits of sandblasting materials for surface coating preparation (such as final powder coating). Double R’s sandblasting techniques help ensure superior surface quality, corrosion prevention, and longevity.
