Abrasive Blasting

Abrasive blasting, more commonly known as sandblasting, is the operation of forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material against an objects surface under high pressure to polish a rough surface, roughen a smooth surface, shape a surface or remove surface contaminants like corrosion, rust and old paint.

Sandblasting with silica sand was previously the most common abrasive used in abrasive blasting. Due to Occupational and Health reasons, Silica Sand is no longer used in sandblasting.  There is now a selection of better and safer media used in Abrasive blasting techniques, the most commonly used is Garnet Blasting. 

A protective coating is only as good as the underlying surface preparation, Absolute Blasts experienced team know which abrasive blasting technique and media will achieve coating application that lasts on your job in the harsh Western Australian conditions.

Water Blasting / Hydroblasting

High pressure water blasting or Hydroblasting is the use of high-pressure water spray to remove paint, grease, grime, dust, mud and dirt from surfaces and objects such as building materials, vehicles and concrete surfaces. It can remove unwanted debris off many surfaces with little damage to the substrate and uses nothing but water expressed under high pressure.
