sandblasting-columbia-industrial-coatingSandblasting is a method typically used in an industrial setting to prepare a piece of equipment or structure to receive an industrial type of coating used to protect and seal it from the outside contaminants or environment in general.

Within the scope of Sandblasting are other methods that are either more or less abrasive, depending on the equipment that needs blasting. Sandblasting is sand funneled through a hose and sprayer at a very high velocity. This type of blasting is common for steel structures in buildings and heavy equipment and does an excellent job of removing contaminants and debris from existing structures.

We at Columbia Industrial Coatings have been employing this technique for many years and have confidence in our personnel to carry out this procedure with the utmost safety and precision in the industry today.

Walnut blasting

Walnut blasting is a softer application; one example would be to dim the transparency of a window creating an opaque effect. Schools request this method for high windows that are letting in too much light or sun.

Soda blasting

Soda blasting is for after a fire. When you need to remove the smell of the fire and gently remove any charring that occurred.

Glass bead /Silica blasting

Glass bead/Silica blasting is for use in the automotive industry; it is gentle yet abrasive enough to remove old paint and rust without damaging the delicate nature of the structure of the vehicle.

Bristle blasting

Bristle blasting is a steel bristle brush with a vacuum hose attached to pick up dust or other particles that may have otherwise been let out during the process, sometimes this method is used when there are people present and or desks, chairs, etc. It is an effective way that requires little prep to accomplish.
