A technique that we use for blasting surfaces is bullet blasting Bullet blasting is also known as throwing or blastrac blasting.
Bullet blasting: this is how it works
With shot blasting, steel “balls” are blown against the surface with a throwing wheel. The abrasive is reused several times through the use of a closed circuit. Dust and dirt are sealed off by an air stream and removed by the vacuum cleaner. Bullet blasting is also known as blastrac blasting, by blasting machines from the manufacturer Blastrac.
Applications of throw blasting
Throw blasting has various applications, such as roughening, cleaning and finishing surfaces. For example, it is very suitable for removing top layers such as paint and epoxy, it can be used to remove road markings, improves the anti-slip layer on footpaths and can also be used for aesthetic effects for roads and motorways.
