Sandblasting

                                                       Sandblasting
        
          Sandblasting is a general term used to describe the act of propelling very  fine bits of material at high-velocity to clean or etch a surface. Sand is the most commonly used material, but any small, relatively small uniform particles will work as a blasting media. Sandblasting can use anything from synthetic beads to tiny bits of walnut shells      

          Sandblasting as a cleaning method has been widely used for hundreds of years, often as a method of prepping a surface for the application of paint or sealant. When painting, most people and companies dont want to trap dust , dirt,and other imperfections under there new paint. By launching small bits of abrasive at the surface at high speed,  all imperfections are knocked loose and can be easily blown away, creating an incredibly smooth surface for the finish to adhere to the part
