Abrasive Grit Blasting, the Optimal Solution for Cleaning Wood Surfaces

Abrasive Grit Blasting, the Optimal Solution for Cleaning Wood Surfaces
Although blasting is often associated with finishing or cleaning metallic surfaces, it is not entirely reserved to this type of material. This method can also provide very good results on wood, rock, concrete, brick or glass surfaces, as well as on many other solid materials. The process consists of projecting abrasive particles on the surface that needs to be cleaned or restored, thus eliminating residues and impurities in a quick and efficient manner.

When it comes to restoring wood buildings, the process of cleaning them by means of blasting is superior to any other exfoliating method. This is both a reliable and an economic and very quick solution, providing a very good effect in preparing wood surfaces for being restored by the newest standards. The results obtained are very good even when the wood surface was unprotected for long periods of time – thus being deteriorated and contaminated. In such cases, the restoration works cannot be done without a careful cleaning of the surface layer, which can be done perfectly through abrasive blasting grit.

If the fence or the wall of your property became a “victim” of urban artists, you can solve this problem by blasting. Abrasive blasting grit can efficiently clean unwanted traces of paint from wood, brick, stone or metallic surfaces.

Don’t waste time and energy trying to remove the old layers of paint off wooden surfaces. Choose to execute these works by means of blasting. All traces of paint as well as any other impurities will be quickly eliminated. Has the look of your wood, rock, concrete or brick fence deteriorated over time, losing its old grandiose aspect? This is a normal process caused by air impurities and weather factors. Also, your fence can show stains caused by other substances or traces of old paint that you want to remove. All these problems can be solved through blasting. You can use abrasive blasting grit to bring your fence back to life and back to its initial look.

Your safety matters to us! That’s why, the grit distributed by GritSablare is made of harmless materials both to your health and to the environment. The angular blasting grit is free of any heavy metals or other substances that have harmful effects on your health. This safety warranty is provided by the product’s ecological certifications issued by the LGA QualiTest GmbH Company, in Germany.

The process of blasting using abrasive grit provides more advantages compared to sand blasting. Due to the irregular shape of its particles, the grit has better abrasive properties thus making the blasting process quicker and more efficient. Besides, the roughness of the surface obtained may be controlled by choosing the optimal granulations for each particular work.

Are you thinking of cleaning a surface by using chemical procedures? You better resort to abrasive blasting grit, the most efficient blasting material for open space blasting. This procedure guarantees that no unwanted chemical substances are left behind on the cleaned surface - that might affect later treatments such as polishing, pulverising, varnishing etc. On the same time, blasting will increase the surfaces’ adherence, thus facilitating the application of paint or varnish.
