Media blasting can be defined as the shooting of any abrasive that cleans, removes, finishes, etches or prepares a surface. The media is propelled with the use of a industrial air compressor. The media impacts the surface to be finished to erode any unwanted materials, to prepare a surface for a coating to be applied, or to provide a desired surface finish.
Media Blasting is often referred to, incorrectly, as “sandblasting”. Silica/sand should never be used in the blasting processes.
