Rust Removal Using Enviroprep Media Blasting

Rust removal using a process called Abrasive Blasting… We can remove rust like you’ve never seen before!

When it comes to Rust Removal then Abrasive Blasting might be just what you are after. Abrasive blasting removes rust using a combination of compressed air, water and abrasive material such as recycled glass or granite on the affected rusty surface.

The high velocity of the abrasive material forced out by the compressed air causes the impact of these high velocity particles to strip back rust leaving a clean, ready to paint surface.

Depending on the abrasive blasting material used for the rust removal process will cause small indentations on the steel material which we call surface profile.

There are many grades of material used for rust removal such as 80 grit garnet, 100 grit recycled glass, steel shot etc… The best way to explain these grades are to think of sandpaper. Like garnet and recycled glass, sandpaper has many different grades and if using an 80 grit sandpaper on metal then you will get the same result as using an 80 grit garnet while blasting. The smaller the garnet size then the smother the profile finish.

Our blasting process is perfect for paint removal or rust removal. Why not give us a call and get a free quote.

 

House Foundation Support Refurbishment

Steel house foundations on the coast can be a nightmare when it comes to rust and corrosion. If you don’t keep on top of it then it can be a very costly process to replace those foundation supports. Builders are always calling us to see if we can come in and blast steel foundations and generally speaking we can do it most of the time depending on access to the foundations. Give us a call. Were only to happy to come and take a look.

We Don’t Just Blast Rust… we stop it dead in its tracks!

The Difference Between Rust & Corrosion

Corrosion is defined as the destructive and unintentional degradation of a material caused by its environment. Unfortunately for metals almost all environments can cause corrosion to some degree, since the corroded state is the more stable state.

A common type of corrosion is rust, which is found on iron and steel structures. In this type of corrosion, the iron is reacting with oxygen to form iron oxide compounds.

When it comes to Rust Removal we can do a lot!

We strip rusty old trailers or boat trailers ready for a brand new paint job and add years of life back into them. We also attend building sites and clean up rusty I-Beams and can even assist in the repainting ready for installation. We also love restoring old rusty antique machinery or agricultural equipment as it is like breathing life back into these beautifully created pieces of machinery which can be like traveling back in time for us. Whatever you have then our mobile abrasive blasting truck can come to you.

Weld Crack Detection

Weld crack detection is something that some businesses have to to do on their equipment periodically. Welds need to be exposed so the weld detection testers can come in and do their tests. Someone needs to remove that corrosion and the paint so why not get us in. Not only will we help you speed up the process helping you to get your equipment back on the road faster but we can help you save money by getting us to come to you and blasting on site. Give us a call!

Here are just a few of the things that we have blasted rust from in the past:
Windmills, staircases, trailers, steel beams, gates, tower cranes, cars, truck chassis, pipes, and much, much more.
