Media blasting service is a powered blast gun that uses pressurized air to remove abrasive materials as graffiti, corrosion restoration, and paint stripping. It has wide applications in industrial restoration and commercial. Media blasting service could be used to strip softer surfaces such as plastic or wood without having to damage the material. No matter how small or big is the project, IBX Services will always provide media blasting services.
Media blasting can also strip paint without damaging the base material, and even smoothing the hardest materials. This powered blast gun uses pressurized air to shoot any tiny pieces out of a nozzle to strip off the surface of a target. The most used media are plastic beads, ground-up walnut shells, aluminum oxide, and glass beads.
IBX uses portable media blastic equipment, which is a wet abrasive blasting system that uses compressed air to propel a mixture of abrasive media and water against the target.
Types of equipment that are used for media blasting services vary in different industries.
Media blasting categories.
The category of media blasting is very wide. There is a large number of distinctive blasting techniques. The one that is most commonly used is sandblasting. Also, hydro blasting is another very popular type of blasting method. Let’s discuss these types of blasting below:
It is a method of blasting which uses silica as a blasting media. The process of Sandblasting is used for cleaning and smoothing a hard surface by forcing solid particles at high speeds using compressed air. Sandblasting can quickly and efficiently remove paint, rust, and residue from oxidation from materials.
This type of blasting is the process of cleaning the surfaces of various materials such as stone, steel, plastic, and wood, using a special gun with extreme pressure. Hydro blasting is distinguished into four categories:
- Low-Pressure Water Cleaning
- High-Pressure Water Cleaning
- High-Pressure Water Jetting
- Ultra High-Pressure Water Jetting
Which Blasting Media Service is Best?
If you want graffiti removal, rust removal, and other restoration projects then choosing the right blasting media is important. Choosing the best blasting media is dependent on the surface treatment you require. Stripping paint from steel does not require the same media that is used for stripping antique wood.
IBX Services uses eco-friendly and safe methods of media blasting. Here are some that we can mention:
- Soda Blasting – This process removes paint and other contaminants without damaging the underlying surface.
- Glass Blasting – It is similar to traditional blasting methods and can be used for much finer work such as polishing aluminum, brass, copper, stainless, etc.
- Sand Blasting – It requires care so it can be used across the spectrum. We keep sand for applications where aggressive hard blasting is needed.
