What Metal Blasting Achieves

Metal blasting can be used to achieve a variety of results, depending on the demands of the project and the part that is being treated. Blasting metal by propelling a jet of abrasive material at high pressure can:

    • Roughen a smooth surface;
    • Smooth out a roughened surface;
    • Add shape to a surface; or
    • Remove surface contaminants such as old paint, oils and debris.

The procedure can be carried out manually or using machinery. One of the main flexibilities lies in the selection of media used as an abrasive. It’s this that determines the kind of finish achieved by the process. The most abrasive materials used in blasting are metal shot and sand. Although they are well equipped to remove the heaviest or most ingrained surface contaminants, like rust and paint, they will also tend to create a rougher surface finish. For a smoother finish, a milder abrasive can be used, such as glass beads or ground walnut shells. But for soft metals or a far smoother finish, blasting with sodium bicarbonate (soda blasting) will cause little surface pitting.
