Sandblasting

SANDBLASTING

Surface preparation by " Sandblasting", is very common and can be relevant at different stages of a product's life, from its initial manufacturing, to its maintenance or its reconditioning in order to restore it to several more years of function.

It can be used with or without the intention of coating a metallic part..

PROCESS

The sandblasting technic consists of removing all dirt and flakes from the surface of a metal object by blasting it with a high velocity abrasive using compressed air.

Effective sandblasting involves a combination of soft and aggressive actions to quickly remove impurities, without changing their structure or appearance.

By propelling steel balls at very high pressure, the material residues and dirt are effectively dislodged, both on the surface and in its cavities.

Depending on the desired sanding, we adjust the level of abrasion and provide a different finish, for an optimal result without ever damaging the surface.

 

4 SANDBLASTING GRADES

Removal of all traces of rust, scale, oil, grease, dirt, dust, paint and visible foreign bodies. 
Used in conditions where the environment is very corrosive, it is the highest degree of preparation.

Traces of discoloration caused by rust, scale, or previous paint stains remain on approximately 33% of the surface. It is the most used surface preparation in the workshop.

Removal of all residue except for heavily encrusted scale, rust and old coatings.

Used in non-corrosive environments

At least 95% of the surface is free of any residue. 

Used for harsh environments where the product is exposed to intensive use.

SANDBLASTING BENEFITS

CLEAN.

Blast, deoxidize.
Removal of traces of rust, scale, grease, dirt, dust, paint etc.

BRING ROUGHNESS.

By mechanical treatment, creation of a grainy texture on the part. In case of a coating project, perfectly prepares the part to receive powder paint.

FLATTEN.

Polishing the part, standardizing its finishes and edges to obtain a smooth surface, removing all burrs (deburring).

CONTACT US

To fight against the spread of COVID-19 , our electrostatic coating services should be kept to a minimum. However, our services are used in the production chain of inputs or raw materials which are necessary for priority services and activities. We have therefore set up a production schedule taking into account the demand of priority sectors (List of priority services and activities)

We invite you to communicate with us at 514-798-2747 or by email info@xtmpowdercoating.com, in order to know our conditions of acceptance of request as well as our production schedule . No service request for non-priority sectors will be accepted. The safety of our staff is paramount, which is why all our staff practice social distancing. Measures have been put in place to limit interaction with truckers and customers. Finally, access to the production site is limited to staff members only.

Be careful!
