March 12, 2024 APT Spray Painting

Sandblasting and recoating are more than just maintenance tasks; they’re crucial steps in keeping machinery and surfaces not only looking good but also working efficiently for longer. These processes strip away the old, battered exterior and shield against future damage. Join us as we dive into what makes sandblasting and recoating so important, highlighting the practical benefits and the range of services APT Spray Painting offers here in Brisbane. It’s about giving your equipment a second chance and ensuring it stands up to the test of time and use.

What is Sandblasting

Sandblasting, or abrasive blasting, is a method we use to clean or modify the surface texture of a material by forcefully directing abrasive particles under high pressure. This technique effectively removes old paint, rust, and other surface imperfections, preparing it for recoating or further processing. Sandblasting uses various materials, including sand, glass beads, and other specialised abrasives, each chosen based on the specific requirements of the project.

Why Machines Need to Be Prepared

Before any recoating or further processing, it’s crucial that machines are properly prepared. This preparation involves cleaning and smoothing their surfaces to ensure that the new coating adheres well and performs as intended. Without this crucial step, the new coat may not provide the desired protection or finish, leading to premature wear or corrosion.

The Sandblasting Process

Our sandblasting process involves several key steps, starting with the selection of the appropriate abrasive material. We then prepare the surface and protect surrounding areas to prevent damage. Using specialised equipment, we propel the abrasive material at high speed towards the target surface, effectively removing unwanted coatings, rust, or debris. We meticulously control the process to ensure the underlying material remains intact and the desired finish is achieved.

Protective New Coat of Paint

Following the thorough sandblasting process, applying a new, protective coat of paint is essential for safeguarding the machinery against environmental factors and wear. At APT Spray Painting, we specialise in commercial and industrial spray painting, offering a wide range of high-quality finishes to suit various needs. Our controlled environment—a semi-downdraft booth—ensures that each project is shielded from dust and pollutants, resulting in a flawless finish. From gloss, matt, and satin finishes to special effects and metallic finishes, our extensive options cater to diverse industry requirements.

FAQs on Sandblasting and Recoating

  • Is sandblasting safe for all types of surfaces? While sandblasting is versatile, the technique and abrasive used must be carefully chosen based on the material to avoid damage.
  • How long does the sandblasting process take? The duration depends on the project’s size and complexity. Small items may take a few hours, while larger projects could require several days.
