What is Sandblasting?

Essentially, this is a process which involves smoothing; reshaping or simply cleaning an object or surface using a jet of sand or similar materials which is then driven by compressed air or steam. 

What Can Go Wrong?

If you’re attempting a DIY project which involves sandblasting, there are many hazards you need to consider before carrying out such task.

  • Not Being Aware of the Safety Precautions:
    Sandblasting is designed to smooth tough surfaces. With thousands of tiny particles, imagine the damage it can do to your skin. Unless your body is entirely protected, including your face and head, you risk exposing yourself to serious problems. Not only that but you also need to stand the correct distance away to be sure that you’re as safe as possible.
  • Using the Wrong Type of Particles
    Unfortunately, you can’t just use the sand commonly sold in stores. This may contain pieces of debris such as small rocks and other substances which could mean that you may end up doing more harm than good.
  • The Wrong Size Machine
    Of course, a small size unit is ideal if you’re carrying out a small project such as a small piece of furniture. But if you’re attempting to tackle a heavy project a small unit is not ideal. They need to cycle more often which will require a lot of stopping and starting which can become very time consuming.
