Abrasive blasting, commonly called sandblasting, is a specialist trade that requires experience and skill. There are a variety of mediums that may be applied in the blasting process, and the choice of material will depend on the surface being treated.
At Senko Abrasive Blasting we are always innovating, and we are proud of the fact that our trials with soda, garnet and other organic abrasives means we can now blast thin vehicle panels that once would have warped from heat build-up when using older abrasive methods.
Senko Abrasive Blasting is committed to consistency, quality and affordability. Our Brisbane workshop has experienced staff who will quickly turn around projects without compromising service or workmanship. We currently use soda, sand, bead, walnut and garnet abrasives, and we offer abrasive blasting services for:
- Metal furniture
- Wooden beam and furniture restoration
- Car, trucks and motorbikes
- Boats and trailers
- Horse floats
- Cane furniture
- Frosted glass designs
- Machinery, tractors and heavy equipment
- Plastic injection moulds
- Statues and bronze castings
The list could go on and on. If you have an item you want restored, we are happy to advise on its suitability for sandblasting, and the best methods available right now.
Why use Abrasive Blasting?
Abrasive sandblasting is the fastest and safest way to remove debris from metals and wood, and it produces a far better finish that manual sanding or chemical strippers. You will save yourself time, money and frustration when you choose abrasive sandblasting for your next project.
How does Abrasive Blasting work?
Industrial sandblasting is an old restoration method, but that does not mean it cannot be innovative. We are constantly trialling new abrasive mediums and factoring in workshop conditions to create new blasting methods, and we know that the choice of grit and the level of operator experience will determine the quality of the finished product.
People often assume that sandblasting is an expensive, time-consuming service that is only available to serious car or boat restorers, but this is simply not true! Abrasive blasting is an extremely affordable, efficient method of removing debris and old paint from items. No amount of manual sanding or chemical paint strippers can compare to the finish of sandblasting – take a look at our gallery, and you will see what we mean.
