Give Us A Call, We'll Have A Blast!
When you have surfaces that need to be cleaned, stripped, made smooth, or made rough, sandblasting is often considered one of the most popular options for getting the job done in New York (NY).
The primary problem with sandblasting, however, is that the sandblasting process can blow large plumes of sand dust into the air. This can be harmful to technicians performing sandblasting and anyone who may be in the area while sandblasting is being performed. A safer alternative which is growing in popularity is glass blasting. Instead of using sand as abrasive media, glass blasting uses glass made from pulverized glass bottles. The glass used in glass blasting doesn’t contain silica, which is the substance in sand that makes it harmful to inhale. Also, glass blasting provides a use for glass bottles that otherwise would have ended up in landfills. All About Blasting is a professional glass blasting service company, offering mobile dustless blasting in Nassau and Suffolk county. We can come to you and there’s no surface too large that we can’t blast.
Although safer and more environmentally friendly than other types of abrasive media, glass blasting can still create dust clouds that can cover an area in dust. If glass blasting a static structure or in a confined area, dust can be almost completely eliminated by using a technique known as dustless blasting. When performing our mobile dustless blasting services we utilize special equipment that lets us combine the glass we use with water, which prevents dust clouds from rising into the air. Although it sounds simple enough, mobile dustless blasting requires special equipment and only works with certain kinds of media ‑ specifically media that can’t dissolve in water.
Before & After
As Seen on Velocity's Unique Rides
All About Blasting uses pulverized glass bottles as the primary media for mobile dustless blasting in NY.
The reason why mixing water with your abrasive media of choice turns traditional glass blasting into dustless glass blasting is because water essentially turns the media into a heavy sludge that doesn’t allow dust to escape during the blasting process. Much the same way throwing dry sand against a wall will result in dust clouds, but throwing wet sand against a wall won’t, dustless glass blasting is much easier to clean up after because any particulate matter left behind from the blasting process will settle to the ground beneath or very near the area that was targeted. For easy cleanup after performing our mobile dustless blasting in NY, we can cover the ground around the area being blasted with a tarp or plastic sheet that will collect most of the spent media.
