What Substrates Are Available
Dustless Blasting Substrates
Dustless Blasting is a revolutionary paint stripping and cleaning solution that can eliminate practically any coating from almost any surface, without making a tremendous plume of sand residue. The dustless blaster works by blending water and abrasive media inside the blast tank. By including water, we are increasing mass and energy that the machine is putting out while suppressing dust.
The Significance of Substrates
The dustless blasting technique is the perfect tool to remove coatings, or etch and texturize hard surfaces. Over at Dustless Blasting Services, we use dustless blasting as our core method of cleaning and renewing old, rusted or scratched surfaces. The substrates which are mainly blasted in this procedure are hard surfaces such as concrete or metals. Unlike the sandblasting technique, metal is not damaged in this process. The blasting procedure is done using several different substrates.
- Automotive: Most of the surface on vehicles is made up of metal, so removing out rust or cleaning out paint is one of the major ways of surface preparation through dustless blasting.
- Removal of graffiti: Utilizing the dustless blasting technique, you can easily remove graffiti, while at the same time have the underlying surface completely stripped clean of any paint, dirt and other contaminants.
- Concrete, stones, and brick: With adjustable pressure and flow, this method can readily blast away and clean antique bricks, Masonry, and other surfaces.
Blasting solutions require high-quality, maximum-bond strength substrates that can effortlessly remove impurities from metal and alloy surfaces and condition them for subsequent blasting operations. The most common substrates available for blasting procedures include steel, iron, alumina, copper slag, silicon carbide as well as silica sand. Ceramics, on the other hand, are typically applied on large building structures including piping, towers and bridges. The abrasives used in small-scale projects include iron, cast iron, steel shot, garnet and silica sand. Sometimes, plastic abrasives, copper slag, nickel slag, free silica and even heavy metals can be used as substrates.
