Ecoblasting is one of the most effective ways to remove rust, old paint, and grime from a vehicle you are restoring. A&J Ecoblasting is here to help. Here’s why you should choose us to help with your auto restoration project.
The sandblasting process can be extremely aggressive, so it’s probably not a good idea to go it alone as you can damage the body of your vehicle beyond repair. If you’re not into spending days upon days hand-sanding the vehicle to prepare it for painting, you’ll want to hire an ecoblasting professional who knows what they’re doing and can get the job done in no time.
One of the main reasons why sandblasting remains a top technique for autobody restoration is the versatility that it offers. Sandblasting eliminates rust, works well for getting rid of oil stains and dirt, and removes the original paint. It also gives a more even surface to work with, unlike hand-sanding which can be uneven or uses chemicals that can corrode the metal.
A number of automotive stripping processes are not considered environmentally friendly. Using chemicals to strip the paint from your vehicle can not only corrode the metal but release harmful toxins in which you breathe or are later tossed in a landfill. The great thing about ecoblasting is that the abrasive materials are not harmful to the environment (in fact, most of them come from the earth, meaning they’re not manmade or toxic). And regardless of what blasting medium is used for the restoration, the material is recycled and reused for another project.
It can be a challenge when it comes to eliminating rust from hard-to-reach areas, such as the undercarriage of the vehicle or the seam of the door. If you do not get rid of all the rust from the old vehicle, it can spread and all of your restoration efforts will have not been worth it. With sandblasting, you can be assured that every nook and cranny of your car that was corroded will be rust-free once the stripping is complete.
There are many benefits to blasting your project and it’s the best way to fully restore a car giving you a good base to start with. Because blasting is faster, requires less effort than stripping by hand, and is more environmentally friendly, you’ll have your resto project up and running in no time.
