Abrasive blasting

Abrasive blasting is a very cost-effective way to remove surface contaminants, due to the ability to recycle the abrasive for repeat use. It is also very efficient in its use of energy.

Whether you call it sandblasting, media blasting or grit blasting, they all refer to the same method of surface cleaning and preparation. The only difference is the  abrasive used .

The abrasive material is relatively inexpensive and abrasive blasting is far more effective than other methods in providing a way to quickly cleaning surfaces to a high level of finish, ready for recoating.

Swart & Sons have many years' experience in abrasive blasting and the skill of our operators, combined with our range of modern, efficient equipment ensures a top quality result each and every time.

In addition, we can work onsite or in our own purpose-built blasting room.
