At +Australian Enviroblast we use the Quill Falcon Precision Dustless Kwikblast® System, which means we have a highly mobile service that can come to you and is suitable to be used on any type of abrasive blasting job, no matter how large or small. There is no dust, no environmental damage, water is re-used and there is very little waste produced.

Abrasive blasting around the home

Image
Abrasive blasting can be used in a wide variety of applications, and is as well-suited to tackling domestic and small-scale jobs as it is commercial projects because it’s ideal for use in tight, out of the way places as well as on large surfaces.

Around the home, abrasive blasting can be used for an enormous variety of cleaning, restoration and refurbishment work, and is entirely safe to employ in a domestic setting. It can also be used to create a non-slip surface on concrete, or to create textured finishes.

Abrasive blasting on steel For instance, if you have steel work around the home that is rusted or corroded, abrasive blasting can be used to remove these so that you have a revitalised surface that can then be coated so as to protect it and prolong its life. This is ideal for verandahs and carports, gates, lattice work, trellises, fences, sheds, pipes, staircases and beams.
