Pressure Blasting


Blasting (also referred to as pressure blasting, sandblasting, bead blasting, soda blasting, and shot blasting) is used to polish, clean, cut, or finish surfaces of different materials such as iron, steel, metal, rubber, or plastic.

Blasting can be done with a wet or dry process and is available in numerous grit sizes.
