Various metals, including steel and aluminium, greatly benefit from abrasive blasting, as the process improves upon the metals’ appearance and their resistance to corrosion. Once blasted, these metals can be coloured, masked, polished, or even anodised to create both standard and bespoke designs.
Abrasive blasting, often done with the use of abrasives like beads, aims to add a finish to these metals by removing small amounts of metal from the surface. Aside from improving the inherent qualities of these metals, bead blasting also produces finishes that are aesthetically appealing. In turn, these finishes are the top choice for architectural applications.
