Sand Blasting Services for Full Blown Coatings
Sand Blasting: Here at Full Blown Coatings, we inspect, then sand blast or media blast every part we receive. You can find out more about media blasting here.
When preparing any surface for powder coating, it is extremely important that the item you are coating is completely clean of oils, dirt, paint, rust and corrosion. Sandblasting de-scales, de-buries and removes oxides, old finishing, and other surface contaminants from metals. We remove anything that might hinder the powder coating process.
Things such as grease, rust, and dirt contaminate the powder, interfere with the powder coating process, and weaken the bond between the powder and the metal. After cleaning your parts, sandblasting also etches/scratches the surface of the item, enabling better adhesion of the powder. As the powder coat flows into the high and low points of the surface profile, it adheres to the part much better than it could if the metal was a smooth surface.

Sandblasting, also known as abrasive blasting, is really a generic term that refers to the process of smoothing, shaping, and cleaning a hard surface by forcing solid particles across that surface at high speeds.
In general, media blasting is an alternative to sandblasting (read more about sand blasting here).
The process is essentially the same, but it uses materials other than sand for blasting.
Wet abrasive blasting
This type of sandblasting utilizes water to blast surfaces. The water traps the dust produced and lubricates the surface at the same time.
Experts find it a strong alternative to dry blasting.
Meta Micro abrasive blasting
This type of dry abrasive blasting process utilizes smaller nozzles (typically 0.25 mm to 1.5 mm diameter) to shoot a fine stream of particles on a small concentrated area on a larger area using high pressure.
