The different surface treatment techniques using sandblasting
Sandblasting (the generic term) is a surface cleaning technique that uses an abrasive shot at high speed using compressed air onto the material to be processed.
Several uses are possible :
Removal of paint or rust to restore the initial material.
To even a surface, to improve its appearance, or to create a grainy, matt or satin effect.
To modify the roughness of a surface in order to improve the adherence of a glue or a paint.
Sandblasting consists in shooting angular grains (sand) onto a surface in order to strip it (of paint, varnish, rust, oxides), or to give it a surface condition the roughness of which will be dependent on the grain size of the abrasive used. Sandblasting significantly improves the mechanical adhesion of paints and glued assemblies.
