Sand Blasting Services

Sand blasting is the process of using high pressure to blast sand (or other media) onto a surface to remove a coating or rust. Sand blasting is powerful, quick, thorough, and safe. It is generally the best way to prepare an object for high performance coatings like powder coating.

Sand blasting, also referred to as “abrasive blasting,” is a mature technique with many variations for different applications. It’s been indevelopment for over 140 years. The first abrasive blasting process was patented by Benjamin Chew Tilghman on October 18, 1870. Examples of the work that can be done are the engraving on tombstones, fine engraving on metal, ceramic or glass objects, and the bas-relief or 3D shaping of material.

Sometimes sand blasting is not enough. When necessary, a degreasing process is also needed to insure the best possible adhesion of the powder coat.

 

If you have a project in mind that seems like it would be very difficult to accomplish, give us a call 1(832)230-4107. We might have a realistic and reasonably priced solution, and there is no charge for the conversation.

Uses of Sandblasting

Besides its basic cleaning role, sandblasting is also used to prepare the surface of an object for different final finishes. A rough object can be made smooth and a smooth object can be made rough. Parts of objects can also be masked for even more options in the final appearance.

It’s easy to see that sand blasting allows Bayou City Coatings control of your project in many ways:

  • Removal of rust, sand, scale and paint from fabricated parts for the best adhesion
  • Surface preparation for different final finishes—smooth, glossy, or matte prior to powder coating
  • Roughening of engine components
  • Providing a matte or shiny surface
  • Restoring very old objects to “new” condition
  • Creating pride-of-ownership details to your off-road buggy or daily driver

We can powder coat almost anything metal or alloy, we have also had success with many glass items and ceramics. It's difficult to calculate exact pricing over the phone, therefore, we will give you an estimate, and then a firm written quote once we see the item and you pick a color. Emailing us pictures is always a good idea. There are thousands of different colors, textures and specialty made powders to choose from.

Prices generally include abrasive blasting, masking, surface preparation and powder coating using a stock color. Prices do not include standard degreasing and cleaning, minor sanding or grinding, pre-treatment (if you bring us an item that is muddy and/or covered in grease there will be an additional charge. 2-coat applications are priced higher.
