About Abrasive Blasting – Neumann Contractors
We cater for all your abrasive blasting needs and offer many years of experience!
Abrasive Blasting is often referred to as Sandblasting. Sandblasting is a very general term used to describe the act of propelling very fine bits of material at high-velocity to clean or etch a surface. The term "Sandblasting" is still often mistakenly used to describe other, now more commonly used and better forms of Abrasive Blasting. Find out more about the term "Sandblasting"....
Neumann Contractors have the capability to Abrasive Blast using either Steel Grit or Crushed Glass media at our Currumbin facility on the Gold Coast. Steel Grit is for use on any heavy Industrial plant and equipment, marine vessel & structure, truck bodies or trailers and can be completed to a marine grade blast class. Crushed Glass can be used on lighter steels, galvanized steel, stainless steel or aluminium. Find out more about Abrasive Blasting ...
Steel Grit Media
Steel Grit blasting is the most widely used process for cleaning, stripping and removing rust from metal surfaces. The grade or size of the grit determine the ultimate finish. Steel grit is a cast steel angular grit produced by crushing specially heat treated oversize shot pellets. Its behaviour in service depends on hardness - a characteristic readily modified by suitable heat treatment. We typically use a GL 40 Steel Grit (about 0.5mm), which is harder than the GP Steel Grit, and it is particularly suited to heavy descaling and surface preparation requirements. GL steel grit cleans rapidly to give a clean finish to all surfaces.
Our expert staff can determine the most appropriate method to suit your particular application and desired finish.
Crushed Glass Media
Crushed Glass Media is a 100% recycled material. The angular particles in crushed glass allow for aggressive surface profiling and removal of coatings such as epoxy, paint, alkyds, vinyl, polyurea, coal tar and elastomers. Crushed Glass Grit is much lighter weight than many slags, allowing for increased consumption efficiency and production time - up to 30-50% less glass grit used.
NOTE: We also have our Industrial Coatings facility right next door to the blasting unit for prompt painting of blasted items, and a Steel Fabrication facility for any repairs or modification that may be required.
