Abrasive Blasting: When the Occasion Calls for Abrasion

Many industries throughout the U.S. depend on Mole∙Master™ Services Corporation and its Abrasive Blasting Services to solve a number of problems, from difficult cleaning jobs to surface preparation. Mole∙Master™ experts have spent decades perfecting the technique, which can be fine-tuned for various purposes. By definition, abrasive blasting forcibly propels a flow of an abrasive substance against a surface through high pressure.

Versatility is Key

As one of two media blasting services offered by Mole∙Master™, Abrasive Blasting is remarkably adaptable to different applications because a variety of media can be utilized. Mole∙Master™ carefully analyzes each project to determine which media will be best-suited to the task at hand. Some considerations include the type of surface being treated, specific environmental concerns, and avoiding contamination of foodstuffs or other supplies. Some of the media used by Mole∙Master™ includes:

  • Silicon Carbide
  • Crushed Glass
  • Sodium Bicarbonate
  • Walnut Shells
  • Plastic Blast Media
  • Glass Beads
  • Aluminum Oxide
  • Steel Shot
  • Crushed Corn Cobs
  • Pumice

Getting to the Surface

Different blasting media have various levels of hardness and abrasion; a milder example is sodium bicarbonate, while steel shot is extremely abrasive. Hard abrasives can blast away scale and rust from metals, while softer abrasives can strip away paint without damaging more delicate surfaces. Mole∙Master’s abrasive blasting experts blend the right medium with precisely metered compressed air to effectively blast surface materials away with no damage to the substrate.
