There are various traditional ways to remove paint from the walls of your commercial or residential property i.e. nail guns, paint stripper, sanding discs, hot air guns and scrapers etc. Paints are used to satiate two kinds of necessary purposes; the first one is to prevent the walls from letting in all kinds of contaminants due to which they may lose their quality, and the second one is to provide them with an aesthetic appeal. Traditional techniques used for removing paint are normally too labour intensive to be cost effective and most of them do not leave a good finish.


For fast and cost-effective paint removal from the surface of many substrates, such as concrete, metals, stone or brick, sandblasting is an ideal solution. The process is carried out with equipment that uses a high powered air compressor connected to the blasting pot which is connected to the blast nozzle using a required length of blast hose. Modern abrasives such as ultra-fine aluminum silicate and bicarbonate of soda allow selective removal of paint from delicate substrates such as Bath stone, sandstone and Portland stone.


A sandblaster uses a rig which comprises a high powered air compressor, which delivers the abrasive from the blast pot down the blast hose and out via the blast nozzle. The abrasive materials used in the process are calcium silicate, calcium carbonate, granules of iron silicate and even small bits of walnut and coconut shells.  The abrasive that is normally used is recycled glass.  However, dependent upon the application, there are a multitude of other abrasives available.  From steel shot at one end of the spectrum which will remove thick mill scale, down to bicarbonate of soda at the other end, which will not even etch glass.


The process can also be used to remove paint from metallic surfaces such as iron gates and railings, tanks, silos, machinery and vehicles. large equipments created in a factory. The abrasion process can be easily carried on using the necessary materials. It is also suggested that after removing the paints from metallic surfaces, they should immediately be coated with primer, to prevent the onset of surface corrosion. be provided a single coat of primers so that it doesn’t start rusting again. Corrosion is a quick reaction and can take place easily. Thus, without wasting any time, the surface can be painted with a primer by Steadblast using a spray or a roller.


For Rust and paint removal from metal, using conventional methods is a highly tedious and labour intensive task. Sandblasting makes light work of this and can be used to prepare large areas of structural steelwork prior to recoating.
