What’s Abrasive Blasting?

Posted February 02, 2014 12:00AM

Abrasive Blasting is also known as surface blasting, grit blasting, and bead blasting. Abrasive Blasting produces a satin (matte) finish with no dimensional change of the blasted item. Blasting provides a non-reflective and cosmetically appealing surface quality. Further, minor imperfections such as machining lines and material grain can be be made less apparent by diffusion of reflected light. Reflected light diffusion is critical in many applications (law enforcement, military tactical, optical, medical/surgical, laser). We offer two choices of blast media: glass bead or aluminum oxide.
