How does rust form and reasons to use dustless blasting for rust removal
Rust Removal — Many metal structures will start to develop rust over time. When this happens, you should take steps to remove the rust as soon as possible to preserve the overall integrity of that structure. Learn what rust is, why it’s bad, and how A&J Ecoblasting can save your structures.
How Does Rust Form?
Rust or oxidation is a chemical process that occurs when water and oxygen bond with a metal. Rust forms on steel or iron when the material is exposed to oxygen and water for a length of time. Other metals and stainless steel do not rust, but they can corrode.
Reasons to Use Dustless Blasting for Rust and Corrosion
Rust and corrosion are not just cosmetic issues. Either can degrade a structure over time lessening its lifespan and causing safety issues. Here are some benefits of using dustless blasting to get rid of rust and corrosion:
Boost Curb Appeal – Rust is an eyesore that will spoil the look of your metal structures. With dustless blasting, we can enhance the look of any metal structure.
Increase Lifespan – Rust doesn’t just make your structure look bad, it also weakens it and damages its overall integrity. If rust isn’t removed promptly, it will continue to eat through the metal and can significantly reduce the structure’s overall lifespan and function. Ecoblasting prevents this decay from progressing further and will save you money in the long run.
Improve Safety – Rust can weaken metal structures, rendering them unsafe. This is especially true for metal structures that have to bear weight. We encourage you to arrange for us to attend to this problem as soon as possible if any of your metal supports or railings start to oxidize.
What can Ecoblasting be Used For?
Any metal that is rusting or corroding can benefit from letting A&J Ecoblasting remove the issue with dustless blasting. For example:
Dustless blasting is the perfect tool to blast away paint, body filler, and rust. Our method is faster, cleaner, and greener than any other paint-stripping technology.
Because our process suppresses dust, we can blast just about anywhere without contaminating the area.
Dry blasting can damage metal because that process creates lots of friction and heat, causing the metal to warp. The water used in our blasting process helps to keep the surface about 10 degrees cooler than the ambient air temperature, so it won’t warp due to heat.
Dustless blasting actually cleans the surface of the vehicle, leaving it free of contaminates and soluble salts that cause flash rust.
Sandblasting is one of the most effective ways to remove rust from your equipment. From farm equipment to storage tanks to machinery, A&J Ecoblasting can help prevent rust and corrosion from corrupting your investment.
Surfaces for Painting
If you have a painting project, sandblasting is an efficient method of smoothing the surface so that the paint goes on without rough spots and looks good. Dustless blasting is extremely versatile and can prep a wide variety of surfaces so that they are ready to paint.
