Sand blasting is also known as abrasive blasting, which is a generic term for the process of smoothing, shaping and cleaning a hard surface by forcing solid particles across that surface at high speeds. The effect is similar to that of using sandpaper, but provides a more even finish with no problems at corners or crannies. Sandblasting can occur naturally, usually as a result of particles blown by wind causing aeolian erosion, or artificially, using compressed air.
Sandblasting equipment typically consists of a chamber in which sand and air are mixed. The mixture travels through a hand-held nozzle to direct the particles toward the surface or work piece. Nozzles come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials. Boron carbide is a popular material for nozzles because it resists abrasive wear well.
The Sand Blasted texture a subtle way to add definition to natural stone. Sand blasting is generally recommended on limestone & softer marble. Sand Blasting is finished with a high hone giving it a soft to the touch feeling.
Sandblasting is again particularly suitable for other artistic work, such as precision work on difficult to reach or very small surfaces and in carving inscriptions, decorative motifs and images on marble and stone.
Sandblasting is also used on exterior paving where a non-slip finish is required. It is also used in the restoration and maintenance of stone cornices and portals, and also to give surfaces a thorough cleaning in preparation for the subsequent application of preservation treatments.
