Hope to have it up and running by the end of the weekend. Cart may have to wait a few weeks.
Going to write up instructions for changing the blast media and what works best for differnt applications.
Aluminum Oxide Blasting Media
Aluminum Oxide is a sharp, long-lasting abrasive sandblasting cutting media that can be re-used many times for grit blasting. As an abrasive blasting media, it is harder than most common dry abrasive blast media and will cut even the hardest metals and surfaces. This particular abrasive blasting media comes in a wide range of sizes.
White Aluminum Oxide Blasting Media
White Aluminum Oxide is a 99.5% ultra-pure grade of blasting media. White Aluminum Oxide is increasingly being used in critical, high performance processes such as microdermabrasion. White Aluminum Oxide is also required where contamination from other metal oxides must be kept to a minimum.
Corn Cob Blasting Media
Corn Cob is a biodegradable blast media that will not etch or warp surface being blasted. Ideal for applications such as wood log homes and thin metals and plastics.
Crushed Glass Grit
Crushed Glass Grit is a silica-free consumable abrasive that offers aggressive surface profiling and removal of a variety of coatings. Manufactured from 100% recycled bottle glass, Crushed Glass Grit produces a whiter, cleaner finish relative to mineral/slag abrasives.
Glass Beads Blasting Media
Creating a softer, brighter finish than angular abrasives, Glass Beads offer a silica-free option for shot blasting, peening, honing, cleaning and light deburring. Glass Beads can be recycled up to 30 times.
Urea Blasting Media
Available in a variety of sizes, Urea, Acrylic, Polyester and Melamine Plastic Abrasives are ideal for applications such as auto restoration to deliver a high stripping rate without damage or warping of the substrate.
Pumice Blasting Media
Pumice is the softest of all the blasting media yet still offers excellent stripping properties. Excellent for blasting surfaces such as soft wood to remove paint and coatings with no impact on the substrate.
Silicon Carbide Blasting Media
Silicon Carbide is the hardest blasting media available. Silicon carbide has a very fast cutting speed and can be recycled and re-used many more times that either sand or aluminum oxide. The hardness of silicon carbide allows for much shorter blast times and lower overall cost per hour relative to other blast media.
Steel Grit Blasting Media
Steel Grit is an angular carbon steel designed for quick and effective removal of surface contaminants from metals. Softer than Aluminum Oxide and less likely to fracture, Steel Grit leaves an etched surface superior for adhesion of paints and coatings.
Steel Shot Blasting Media - too large for our booth
Steel Shot is ideal for peening applications to impart a clean, smooth and polished finish. This dense, smooth shot can be used up to 3,000 times producing minimal dust during the blasting process increased compressive strength of the metal.
Walnut Shells Blasting Media
Walnut Shell Grit is the most versatile of the organic media due to its angular, durable shape yet is still considered a soft media. Use as an economical, biodegradable alternative for sensitive blasting operations that require aggressive stripping without affect on the substrate.
