What is grit blasting?

Grit blasting is a process where abrasive particles are pneumatically accelerated and forcefully directed against a surface. These high speed abrasive particles remove contaminants from the material's surface and condition the surface for subsequent finishing.

Typical grit blasting applications include:

  • roughening surfaces in preparation for thermal spraying, painting, bonding or other coating operations
  • removing rust, scale, sand, or paint
  • removing burrs
  • providing a matte surface finish
  • removing flash from molded components
  • cosmetic surface enhancement or etching
