Cleaning

Background

The sandblasting treatment aimed at making surfaces clean, improving their appearance.

THE FINAL TOUCH
The sandblasting of existing steel structures, for example, can remove old coatings, rust, contaminants. On newly rolled steel, on the other hand, it removes mill scales, oxides and rust. Other metals that can be sandblasted include aluminium and aluminium-derived alloys (like zamak), titanium, magnesium, brass, copper and alloys.
Moreover, thanks to the development of new grits based on Nylon, polycarbonate and polyurethane resins it is possible to treat plastics like thermoplastics, thermosettings or thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) and composites. This allows for applications in aeronautics, automotive and shipbuilding to remove coatings without using treatments that could damage the surface.

OUR ANSWER
Our in-depth knowledge of processes and materials enables us to design ultra-efficient machines conceived to ensure top-quality results. For stainless steel, for instance, our patented Inox Peen® treatment lends treated surfaces a particular roughness profile that achieves the same cleanability as BA polished surface or better. Our systems, both manual and automatic, are suitable for conveying appropriate abrasives, removing surface oxides (e.g., residues from hardening processes or salts baths), restoring the conditions of the item to its pretreatment state, always without altering the morphological characteristics of the piece itself.
