Michigan Sandblasting and Painting

Media blasting as a cleaning method has been widely used for over a hundred years, often as a method of preparing a surface for the application of paint, a sealant or coating. View before/after photos.

Abrasive blasting is the operation of forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material against a surface under high pressure to smooth a rough surface, roughen a smooth surface, shape a surface or remove surface contaminants.

Our specialists will help you determine which media is best for your project; sand, soda or glass.

Media Blasting Overview

SAND
Industrial process by which excess materials, paints, debris, etc., can be removed from a surface.

SODA
Highly effective but gentler, more precise technique using sodium bicarbonate particles instead of sand or chemicals.

CRUSHED GLASS
Crushed glass offers aggressive surface profiling and removal of a variety of coatings while containing no free silica.

Sand
Sandblasting (a.k.a. Gritblasting) is an industrial process by which excess materials, paints, debris, etc., can be removed from a surface (typically metallic surfaces). Our system is a gravity fed/pressure type system, using air pressure combined with an abrasive compound. The abrasive compound is purified fine sand with silica content. Air pressure forces the abrasive through a hardened nozzle in a jet stream which allows it to remove contaminants from the surface of the product.

Soda
A relatively new technique, sandblasting with baking soda is a highly effective but gentler, more precise technique using sodium bicarbonate particles instead of sand or chemicals.

The sodium bicarbonate used in commercial or industrial soda blasting is a larger granule than the type that is in your kitchen cabinet, although it is the same product. Once it is sprayed, it breaks up or explodes into a powder as it hits the surface, resulting in a fine powder. Because baking soda is softer than sand or water blasting, this is an appropriate method to use in many different industrial painting and cleaning applications.

Soda blasting is an environmentally friendly cleaning technique, baking soda is a natural substance that simply dissipates into the environment. Sandblasting with baking soda is completely harmless, but highly effective in removing paint and grime in preparation for commercial painting.

Crushed Glass
Crushed glass offers aggressive surface profiling and removal of a variety of coatings while containing no free silica. Manufactured from 100% recycled bottle glass, Crushed Glass generally produces a whiter, cleaner finish compared to mineral/slag abrasives. This abrasive is excellent for coating removal on softer metals such as aluminum or thin gauge steel that may typically be warped or damaged by higher density abrasives.
