Abrasive blasting is an essential tool in a wide variety of building restorations and renovations. It offers a versatile, efficient, thorough but gentle cleaning process that makes it ideal for all kinds of applications.
At Australian Enviroblast, we use the Quill Falcon Kwikblast® Dustless Blasting System, an environmentally friendly cleaning system noted for its power and efficiency and ability to remove coatings, corrosion and residues from all types of structures, locations and equipment, while leaving surfaces clean and contaminant free.
Abrasive blasting is suitable for:
- stripping paint from interior and exterior walls
- cleaning oil-stained driveways and car parks
- sensitive heritage restorations
- restoring memorials or public art works
- removing graffiti
- repairing flood or fire damage
Using the Quill Falcon Kwikblast Dustless Blasting System, our abrasive blasting services are especially effective at removing paint from all types of surfaces, including:
- ceramic tiles
In a manufacturing or industrial space, abrasive blasting is ideal for cleaning up paint spills, oil and residue, corrosion and most other types of deterioration or damage.
Abrasive Blasting in Building Restoration
Abrasive blasting can be used for a variety of purposes in the restoration and renovation of all types of buildings and structures, including domestic and commercial premises, as well as industrial and manufacturing spaces. It cleans away all existing paint layers leaving an extremely smooth, even finish that is the ideal preparation for repainting.
Abrasive blasting also strips away oil and mould stains, residues and corrosion from brickwork or stonework, fences and walls, driveways and outdoor living areas.
Fire and Flood Repair
Properties that have been damaged by fire and flood can also benefit from abrasive blasting as part of their remediation. Less labour-intensive and not involving any chemicals, damaged interiors and exteriors can be restored to a state where restoration and renovation can take place.
Abrasive blasting removes soot, mould, odours and stains, and profiles surfaces so that they are ready for repainting, plastering or rendering.
Rust and corrosion
The Australian Enviroblast wet abrasive blasting system removes rust and corrosion from all metal surfaces and structural steel and can be used to clean and restore warehouses, factories and retail premises, agricultural and industrial machinery, as well as trailers and horse floats.
Using the Quill Falcon Kwikblast® Dustless Blasting System, soot, grime and fumes build up can be removed quickly without causing any damage to the surface. More gentle than sand blasting and other types of cleaning, abrasive blasting is ideal for use on softer stones like sandstone, bluestone limestone and masonry.
Statues and Memorials
Abrasive blasting using the Quill Falcon Kwikblast® Dustless Blasting System allows public works to be restored to their former glory without damaging fine detail and contours or detracting from the artist’s original vision. Intricate surface designs can be cleaned without any damage, as there are no chemicals used and the process is a gentle one.
In addition, abrasive blasting is gentle enough to be used on other artistic media, such as wood, copper and steel, and so is suitable for the cleaning of contemporary works of art installed in public spaces as well.
