When it comes to restoring old or well used machinery and surfaces back to their former glory there is one method that doesn’t appear to be rivalled in any way.
Regardless of which industry you are in or domestic requirements you have sand blasting really is top drawer in terms of consistent finish, effectiveness, prep aiding and overall project time when it comes restoring heavy metal or cleaning surfaces. There doesn’t appear to be a better way to restore former glory to industrial or domestic heavy metal work.
How does it work?
The process is quite outstanding to watch, you can literally see the change of old to new within minutes. Essentially this method of restoration using high pressure air and other elements.
Some jobs just require air, tougher jobs require sand to be added, using the sand as an abrasive, there are also those jobs where perhaps you are not dealing with several tonnes of cast iron and would like the metal underneath to remain ‘untarnished’. For that purpose, soda is used for a softer approach.

Looking into sandblasting in particular we were surprised to see how many market sectors have used and benefitted from using this method of restoration. It turns out to be a low-risk process to so minimum disruption to be expected. Bonus. We saw project examples from the following.
- The military
- Marinas and boat yards
- A quarry of all places……… for equipment.
- Main roads and highways
As you can see, the process of sandblasting is used by a wide range of customers and for varied purposes. One thing is for sure, they will have aimed for the most cost effective and least time-consuming method or restoration. Maybe the reason sand blasting is number 1….
Something to consider and be aware of before booking a service is protection of the item in question after the blasting has been done. Some companies offer protection as service they can provide. This is likely something you want to include if for commercial purposes or for large jobs at home.
The market is awash with companies offering similar services so make sure you go with a reputable firm who has a track record of quality and customer satisfaction. One-man bands are all over the place but for some jobs, your mate Dave and his man with a van won’t do.
Don’t compromise between budget and getting the job done properly. None of us want to pay twice!
