We often get asked how we remove existing paint, so thought we'd show you one of the primary methods we use.
Media blasting is the term used then an abrasive material is forced out under pressure against a surface to remove the paint and rust without damaging the metalwork below. We use recycled glass in the same consistency of caster sugar for our media blasting as it's extremely effective at removing paint and rust.
The advantage of media blasting over chemical paint stripping is its ability to penetrate the nooks and crannies where rust usually starts and chemicals won't reach.
