Steel Sandblasting

Steel Sandblasting in Melbourne & Sydney

Specialising in sandblasting all types of steel for domestic, commercial and industrial clients in Melbourne, VacuBlast can restore and prepare a variety of steel structures. Our abrasive blasting methods clean steel to remove paint, rust, grease and grime preparing the surface for the application of commercial or industrial protective paint and coating.

Experienced in preparing metals for long-term preservation, our skilled workforce caters to all requirements. Whether sandblasting smooth surfaces to roughen the profile, sandblasting rough surfaces to smooth the profile, or removing surface contaminants to expose original metal, we can provide assistance.

We utilise a wide range of abrasive materials in our sandblasting processes depending on the requested profile finish and micron specifications of the steel. We use various grades of garnet, crushed glass, glass bead or steel shot, ensuring we’re delivering and preparing a surface to our client’s requirements.

Our Degrees of Abrasive Blasting

VacuBlast offers different degrees of abrasive blasting in Melbourne to comply with industry surface standards:

  • Blast Class 1: Very light, whip over blast clean with removal of loose surface contaminants.
  • Blast Class 2: Substantial blast clean with widespread, visible contaminant removal and base metal colour appearing.
  • Blast Class 2.5: Intense blast clean leaving shaded grey metal with only small, isolated flecks or strips of visible contaminants.
  • Blast Class 3: Complete blast clean with consistent metal colour all over and no visible contaminants.

Abrasive blasting is an essential procedure for any steel project, product or structure. New or old steel that has not undergone sandblasting treatment will fail to deliver a prepared surface for the application of paint or protective coating, resulting in coatings not adhering to the steel or metal surface. At VacuBlast, we ensure the surface is clean and prepared for its next application.
