Getting Blasted

Plastic media is used to gently strip the paint and surface rust without damaging the metal surfaces.

These photos show how effective stripping with plastic-media is and how smooth a surface it leaves.

Plastic media, shot at low pressure (about 25 psi), will remove paint and light surface rust without pitting, stretching or otherwise damaging the surface of the metal. Before blasting, parts must be completely degreased to prevent contamination of the media. About the only material that cannot be stripped using this method is wood, which is too soft and contaminates the media as it breaks down. Media is re-used several times and recycled.
