Dry Blasting

Dry blasting uses a variety of media to give the desired finish. These can include glass beads, crushed garnet, aluminium oxide, copper slag, steel beads and pellets, and even crushed nut shells. Often mistakenly called “sand blasting”, sand or silicon dioxide is not used these days as it can cause silicosis. Using the more aggressive media, dry blasting is excellent for removing rust and can leave a surface finished with good keying properties for painting or powder coating. With the correct media it can also leave a mat finish on ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Applications include:-

  • Rust removal
  • Shot peening
  • Mat finish with good keying properties
  • Barrels, cylinder heads
  • De-burring gears, etc.
  • Partial polishing (using the correct media)
  • Glass and surface etching

All components should be degreased and as clean as possible when received please. Should heavily soiled components be received, there may be an additional charge for cleaning before blasting.

BMB will notify the customer of any damage found to items during a pre-blasting visual check, and of any damage found after blasting.
