Media Blasting

What is media blasting and how does it work?

Media blasting is a fast and economical approach for removing paint and rust. Layers of paint that would take days or weeks to manually remove simply vaporize at the end of our blasting gun.

Blasting uses a large volume of compressed air to pressurize the media in a hopper and then pushes it through the gun’s nozzle onto the part’s surface to remove paint and expose a bare metal surface.

How much does media blasting cost?

Cost is determined by the amount of time spent blasting. Give us a call to discuss your specific project and we’ll be sure to give you the most competitive pricing in town.

What is the typical turnaround time?

Small items like brackets and suspension components can be blasted within a day or two, while larger items can take longer to complete. Give us a call to discuss your deadline requirements.

What type of media do you use?

We understand the importance of using the correct blasting media. We are constantly evaluating the best abrasive and technique to allow for the fastest and safest blasting. Our garnet media is safe on everything from steel to aluminum and will never jeopardize the integrity of the part. Correct pressure, distance, angle, gun motion and operator experience are even more important factors.

What about soda blasting?

Although we occasionally receive inquiries about soda blasting, we distance ourselves from it as does not remove heavy rust or body filler and leaves a caustic residue, creating problems in the finish.

How big of an item can you blast?

Our blasting room was designed to handle both small jobs and large restoration or commercial projects. With a depth of 20′ and 14′ width we can blast just about anything that comes in through the door.
