” Abrasive blastings “, more commonly known as sandblasting, is based on the force that drives a stream of abrasive material onto a surface under high pressure to smooth a rough surface, roughen a smooth surface, shape the surface, or remove surface contaminants. Fluid under pressure, usually compressed air or a centrifugal wheel, is used to drive an explosive (often called media).
- The process of cleaning or shaping any surface with an abrasive in a stream of compressed air or liquid. The sanding effect is similar to sanding, but the surface being cleaned is more even and obtains the roughness required for painting, and there are no problems cleaning hard to reach corners or curves. Other sufficiently ground materials can also be used for sandblasting: copper slag, shot, glass, metal, dry ice, pomegranate (mineral), slag, and even ground pieces of coconut shells and other plants, which allows a specific appearance of the treated surface.
