Welcome to our Sand Blasting Section!


Sand blasting is an effective method for preparing surfaces by removing contaminants and creating a textured surface for adhesion. At Inland Powder Coating our sand blasting services offer:

  • Surface Preparation: Sand blasting removes rust, scale, and old coatings, preparing surfaces for optimal adhesion of coatings.

  • Uniformity: Achieve a uniform and clean surface, promoting better coating adhesion and a smoother finish.

  • Versatility: Sand blasting is suitable for a variety of materials, from metal to wood, making it a versatile surface preparation method.

What is Sand Blasting?

Sand blasting, also known as abrasive blasting, is a surface preparation technique that involves using high-pressure air to propel abrasive materials (such as sand, glass beads, or steel grit) against a surface. This process is effective for removing rust, old coatings, and contaminants, creating a clean and textured surface for further treatment.

How Does Sand Blasting Work?


  • Surface PreparationThe object to be treated is placed in a controlled environment, often within a blasting booth, to contain the abrasive materials and prevent environmental contamination.

  • Abrasive PropulsionAbrasive material, such as sand or other media, is propelled at high velocity through a blasting nozzle by compressed air or centrifugal force.

  • Impact on SurfaceThe abrasive particles strike the surface, removing contaminants, old coatings, and impurities. This process creates a textured surface ideal for coating adhesion.

  • Cleaning and ProfilingSand blasting not only cleans the surface but also creates a profile or texture on the substrate, enhancing the adhesion of coatings.

Benefits of Sand Blasting:


  • Efficient Surface PreparationRapidly removes rust, scale, old coatings, and contaminants from surfaces.

  • VersatilitySuitable for various materials, including metal, concrete, and wood, making it a versatile method for surface preparation.

  • Profile ControlProvides control over the texture or profile of the surface, allowing customization based on coating requirements.

  • Preventive TreatmentCan be used as a preventive measure to remove surface impurities and extend the life of coated surfaces.


  • Metal Fabrication: Prepares metal surfaces before welding, painting, or coating.

  • Structural Cleaning: Ideal for cleaning and preparing surfaces on buildings, bridges, and industrial structures.

Sand blasting is a powerful and efficient method for surface preparation, providing a clean and textured substrate ideal for subsequent coating applications. Whether restoring a classic car or preparing a metal structure for painting, sand blasting plays a crucial role in achieving optimal coating adhesion and surface quality.
