Sand-Blasting

Abrasive material and high speed air projection

The abrasive action of wind-blown sand against hard objects (rocks, monuments) has been known and understood for thousands of years. This technique is based on subjecting a component to a high speed air flow containing an abrasive material.The materials will gradually wear away the surface of the article, so the abrasive products are chosen carefully to produce the desired result.
