Sandblasting

Sandblasting offers an effective method for removing dirt, rust, paint and other contaminants from a surface. The sandblasting process involves using pressurized air or water to shoot a stream of abrasive material over the surface in need of cleaning. The abrasive material or media — often silica sand — wears against the surface until it is cleaned and smoothed evenly. The high-powered erosion removes paint and other contaminants much more quickly than sandpaper and other cleaning methods, making sandblasting ideal for preparing large surfaces.

At Capital Coating, we offer sandblasting services for clients in a range of industries. We can use sandblasting to clean substrates composed of brick, stone, concrete, steel and many other materials. Our team can clean cooling towers, pipelines, buildings, pools, tanks, agricultural equipment, industrial equipment and more. If you’re looking for sandblasting companies in the Northeast, Capital Coating can complete your project quickly and properly.

Sandblasting can be a useful tool for asset maintenance. Often used before painting and coating to encourage lasting adhesion, sandblasting makes surface preparation fast and simple. Although convenient, sandblasting can be a hazardous process as it can release dangerous particles in the air when conducted without proper precautions. Choosing safety-trained and insured sandblasting professionals can help ensure the job gets done right.

Capital Coating offers a number of surface preparation and cleaning services, including two types of sandblasting:

  • Dry sandblasting: In dry sandblasting, a stream of pressurized air propels sand or another abrasive media at a surface. This type of sandblasting works quickly and is often used to remove rust from metal substrates.
  • Wet sandblasting: Similar to dry sandblasting, wet sandblasting uses pressurized water to propel an abrasive at a substrate. Wet sandblasting prevents dust from being released into the air during the cleaning process, which makes it preferred for removing potentially hazardous coatings.

The type of sandblasting that’s right for your business will depend on the substrate you need to clean. Before providing sandblasting service, we wil

l consult with you to determine what type of surface preparation will prove most effective. Once we’ve chosen a method, our contractors will come to your location at a time of your choosing. Following all safety guidelines and best practices, we will sa

nd blast the surface and provide any other requested services like industrial painting before cleaning up and allowing you to resume operations.
