Sandblasting

the original industrial blasting solution

Sandblasting is an abrasive blasting process that involves cleaning or etching a surface by bombarding with fine particulates shot at a controlled velocity. This process can create a smooth finish on concrete, exposing aggregate finishing, removal of aged paint, etching, and more.

The process of sandblasting is common knowledge, but it has also become a dated technology by the more advanced predecessors.  Sandblasting produces an extreme amount of waste, hazardous dust, and other issues.  Working regularly with sandblasting equipment can also lead to some serious health conditions!

Evolving with the times, EMS has adapted new abrasive techniques such as Dry Ice, Sponge, or “Low-Dust” Wet or Vapor Blasting.  Not only are these options a much more eco-friendly blasting choice.  They also produce better results with drastically reduce risks.
