Benefits of Dustless Sandblasting

At Quinns Painting and Decorating, we recognise the benefits of using dustless sandblasting techniques. It’s safer than using the old silica sand method and can remove rust, paint, render, line markings, graffiti and more.

We’ve come up with a list for you! Here are the top five benefits of dustless sandblasting:

1. Efficient Cleaning

Dustless sandblasting is much more energy efficient for cleaning surfaces.

Paint and rust are removed faster than other sandblasting methods.

The use of water enables the treated area to cool faster.

Cleanliness is a major benefit of dustless sandblasting.

2. Lower Health Risk

Other sandblasting methods like silica sandblasting, can cause respiratory health issues for operators.

The use of water in the dustless sandblasting method, removes all debris and particles in the air. This creates a clean and safe environment for you and our operators.

The sandblasting method we use, is the cleanest method available.

Dustless sandblasting is the fastest and most efficient method of surface cleaning.

Water is an excellent cleaning agent and assists us in removing any oil, rust or debris from the site.

Here are some of your Frequently Asked Questions below…

Is dustless sandblasting harmful to people?

Not at all. The dustless process is unlike traditional sandblasting and doesn’t release toxic particles. This leaves the site safer and the air cleaner. We don’t need to wear full PPE either, so our risk of respiratory health problems, obstructed vision or having an accident is eliminated.

Is dustless sandblasting harmful to the environment?

Dustless sandblasting is the least damaging option for the environment. Any debris or remnants from the surface are trapped in the water particles during the cleaning process. This makes cleaning the site much easier. This process even uses less water than a high pressure washer!

Will it warp metal?

No, dustless sandblasting wont warp metal or any other surfaces. The water cools the area and unlike other forms of sandblasting, reduces heat and friction.
