Grit blasting, also known as sand blast cleaning, is a method of shooting sand, small glass beads or other media with the use of a machine, by accelerating them through a blasting nozzle using compressed air, water, vapor streams or mechanical projection methods, on the surface of a hard material, until it becomes smooth. The process is used in a wide range of industries for a variety of purposes, usually in order to remove a previous finish from an object, to remove rust or old paint and to prepare a surface for applying a new coat of paint. The type of blasting abrasive used in each application depends on the requirements for each surface, how difficult the rust or paint removal or the resurfacing process is and how much impact the material is able to withstand.
