Whether you’re cleaning old machinery, stripping car parts, or removing corrosion from an engine, the most practical rust removal solution is to use an abrasive blasting media.
At Elite Blasting and Coatings, our rust removal services use either soda, bead, or Dustless Blasting to remove rust that has formed on metal surfaces or similar materials. The abrasive media breaks down the rust, revealing the surface underneath. If rust has caused corrosion deep beneath the surface of a metal, ruining its structure, this will be revealed by the blasting process.
Offering a flexible and affordable service for commercial, automotive, and residential customers, we're equipped to remove rust, paint, oxidation, and other unwanted contaminants from metal surfaces. We're completely mobile, bringing our rust removal service to your home, business, or job site.
Rust Removal Media
We're certified to remove oxidation and rust from any surface using a variety of media blasting techniques. Unlike other, less effective forms of rust removal, using blasting media guarantees that the job can be done quickly and properly the first time, meeting even the tightest of deadlines.
When we're tailoring our rust removal service to your job, we'll look at the level of corrosion we're dealing with, and the thickness of the metal we'll be blasting. From here, our technicians will determine the best method for getting rid of rust stains as efficiently as possible.
The rust removal media we use are as follows:
If you have a fragile metal or thin sheet metal that has light rust stains, we will usually consider a simple soda blasting service for the job.
Shooting baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate, at high pressure onto a surface, soda blasting is gentle enough for use on thinner metals. Our professional contractors will also adjust the air pressure of our equipment when dealing with more delicate surfaces, to allow for a high-quality finish with no damage to the material.
Dustless Blasting is another safe and efficient option for removing corrosion and rust stains, restoring a material to its original state. Not only does Dustless Blasting strip away existing rust, but it also cleans the surface, freeing it of soluble salts and contaminants that are responsible for flash rust. This makes it ideal for use in the car industry for automotive restoration.
Dustless Blasting is an environmentally friendly process that's suitable for both outdoor and indoor use. This cleaning method produces a low level of dust and debris, which keeps the surrounding area clear and free from mess.
For removing rust stains from aluminum, plastic, or glass, beads are a media blasting option to consider. Because this media has a lower Mohs hardness, it won't devastate a metal surface. For iron or steel, glass beads are a good choice, especially if you're looking to strip right down to the bare metal.
When deciding on the best cleaning and corrosion removal services for you, we may decide to combine several media for the best effects. For instance, baking soda and glass beads strike a good balance in removing rust without damaging the substrate.
The Best Methods for Rust and Oxidation Removal
Rust has an adverse effect on almost all metal surfaces, and can slowly undo the integrity of a solid structure. In most cases, it takes a rust removal professional - someone who has extensive knowledge of how to remove rust without damaging surfaces - to get the job done properly.
