sand is not used in this day and age as it has a high silicon dioxide, content also known as silica. but the term sandblasting has stuck.
We use a variety of different abrasive medias, and force with which it is blasted
pressure is all variable so that we can control in confidence in order to achieve the required result which may be cleaning, descaling or deburring .
The task may differ, from making a surface profile to
encourage adhesion to a specific type of paint or coating to be introduced to the surface, to just keeping the surface looking new and retaining its protection or strength
