Why is Sandblasting Important?
The process of sandblasting is incredibly essential when you want a smooth, impressive finish from either paint or powder coating. Sandblasting will clean the surface – ensuring that any unwanted rough edges, coatings, and corrosions are removed. This results in a high-quality finish for your metal product. Once the sand blasting is completed, the surface needs to be thoroughly cleaned to remove any traces of dirt, grease or sand that may interfere with the powder coating process. Nearly all your metal projects will need sand blasting to achieve the desired outcome and therefore, getting assistance from a leader in the metal industry is paramount. Choose our team at Langford Metal for superior sand blasting services that will prepare your product for the perfect finish.
The Purpose Of Powder Coating
Powder coating provides a high-quality finish on your metal products. It’s the next step after sand blasting and ties the overall design of your project together. Utilising a powder coating can create a more durable finish than what a liquid solution can provide and also allows for a more attractive look. With powder coating, your product will be more resistant to the long-term impact of moisture, chemicals, ultraviolet light, and other weather conditions. Therefore, your product will be protected against the risk of scratches, chipping, corrosion, and fading. With its increased longevity, powder coating is a smart choice when wanting a finish that is both durable and looks good.

How does a sandblasting machine work?
Sandblasting machines work to clean metal surfaces by abrading them with finely ground sand. This is done by using a high pressured air gun that fires out the sand at a very high velocity. Sandblasters typically have a ceramic barrel or another type of interior coating to prevent the sand from eroding the machine over time. Through consistent pressure, the sand that ejects out of the sandblaster works to remove the materials on the surface of the metal.
What is sandblasting?
Sandblasting is a process that uses a machine to spray abrasive finely ground sand under high pressure onto a surface. Most commonly, sandblasting is used to remove rust, paint, or any other unwanted materials from metal surfaces. As the sand particles hit the metal, they create a smoother and more even texture.
Sand is used because of its rough and gritty nature. For example, sandpaper contains many sand particles, and rubbing it onto a surface will create a smoother texture. Similarly, sandblasting uses sand particles in a very similar way, except instead of friction through rubbing, it uses heavily pressurised sand.
How can you make a sandblasting machine?
Even though it may seem appealing to DIY a sandblasting machine to save a bit of money, sandblasting can be a hazardous process. If you attempt to make a sandblasting machine yourself, your device will likely result from poor manufacturing. This can lead to severe health and safety hazards. We strongly recommend obtaining a sandblasting machine instead. If you are on a budget, sandblasting machines are available at a variety of price points. Alternatively, consider employing the skills of a professional sandblaster to complete your sandblasting job for you.
What is the finest sandblasting grit I can buy?
Glass beads are one of the finest sandblasting grit you can get. They are useful if you want a very smooth, bright finish. Glass beads are often made from fine soda-lime glass and are recyclable. This means you can use them up to 100 times before needing replacement, making them a very cost-effective option for sandblasting.
However, when choosing a sandblasting medium, it is essential to look at other factors aside from grit. Media are made of various materials, including walnuts, glass, steel, garnet and more. Each has a different hardness, size, and working speed that will suit other sandblasting uses.
What is a sandblasting machine?
Sandblasting uses highly pressured compressed air to propel media onto the surface of the project. A sandblasting machine is typically made up of four basic components: the air source, the sandblasting cabinet, the dust collector and the blasting media. The air source is usually an air compressor or bottle gas. The sandblasting cabinet holds the object that is being blasted. This ensures a closed system for sandblasting and will prevent the blasting media from getting on your skin or into your respiratory system. The dust collected is attached to the cabinet and is used to remove the dust inside. The blasting media is whatever material is being used for sandblasting.
