Sandblasting is one of most effective ways to shape or strip and smooth a surface of any foreign material. The sandblasting process uses compressed air to "blast" fine sand or other very abrasive, high grit materials through a nozzle at an object desired to be sandblasted. These abrasive materials quickly remove the surface of the object, leaving a smooth clean surface to work with.

A highly effective sandblasting service is now available at WPC. Using the latest technology from Metaltech, WPC now have an 880-litre sandblasting cabinet on site for industrial quality sandblasting. With a built-in vacuum and filter system you can be assured of clean and accurate results as part of your powder coating requirements.

There are a range of uses for sandblasting, which include:-

  • Surface preparation prior to powder coating, painting, bonding or other coating operations
  • Removal of rust, scale, sand, or paint from fabricated components
  • Removal of burrs or edge profiling machined components
  • Providing a matte cosmetic surface finish on consumer products
  • Surface texturing of tooling, and moulds to alter the appearance of moulded or stamped products
