Sandblasting is a generic term for the process of smoothing, shaping, sizing and cleaning a hard surface by forcing solid particles on the surface at high speeds; the effect is same to that of using sandpaper, but offers a more even complete with no problems at corners. Sandblasting process can occur naturally, generally as a result of particles blown by wind causing eolian, erosion / artificially, using compressed air. An artificial sandblasting was patented by Benjamin Chew Tilghman on 18 October 1870.
The material used for artificial sandblasting was sand that had been sieved to a uniform size. The silica dust produced in the blasting process is caused silicosis after sustained inhalation of dust. Many countries & territories now regulate sandblasting such that it may only be processed in a controlled environment using ventilation, breathing air supply and protective clothing.
Other materials for sandblasting have been build to be used instead of sand; for example, steel shots, carborundum grit, copper slag, powdered slag, glass beads, metal pellets, garnet, powdered abrasives, dry ice, and even ground coconut shells, walnut shells, corncobs, and baking soda have been used for some specific applications and can give distinct surface finishes. Some commercial field blasters are specially developed to handle multiple blast abrasives. These blasters are generally referred as multi media blasters.
Sandblasting can also be used to produce `Three Dimensional Signage'. This is considered to be a higher end product as compared to the others. These signs often add in gold leaf overlay and sometimes crushed glass backgrounds also called smalts. It can be used to refurbish buildings / create works of art. Modern masks & resists facilitate this method, producing accurate results.
Many Sandblasting suppliers in UAE are supplying Sandblasting Equipment & Supplies includes sandblasting machines, sandblasting gun, sandblasting hooper & sandblasting garnet. Sandblasting machine is used to spray air pressure over the surface of objects. Sandblasting equipments does not need moving objects from one place to another place. It is used also on heavy objects. These supplies refer to materials that make all blasters to work. These are of different kinds, such as the aluminum oxide and boron carbides.
