AmTech's Abrasive Blasting Services experienced staff will help you determine the appropriate surface preparation or blast cleaning system to match your requirements. Proper surface preparation is critical for the success of every cleaning, coating or lining project.
Shooting abrasive particles at a surface is the fastest and most thorough means of cleaning, de-scaling, de-burring and removing oxides and other surface contaminants. This process works for awkward interiors, such as tanks, as well as on open surfaces like walls and swimming pools. What is used as an abrasive, the force with which it is blasted and the medium used to create the pressure are all variables that AmTech understands and can confidently match to the task in order to achieve the required results.
AmTech undertakes both the everyday as well as the uncommon and unusual challenges. Whether it be structural steel, concrete walls and structures or special abatements such as lead coatings, we supply a safe and effective service on-site or at one of our facilities in the Northeast. For sensitive and tough substrates we offer a variety of blast media choices to get the job done right. Example media blasting abrasives include pulverized coke breeze, garnet, black beauty, corn cob, crushed walnut shells, glass beads and several dozen more.
AmTech's blasting crews service government agencies, contractors, engineering firms, property management companies, public utilities and institutional clients. Our fully trained abrasive blasters are equipped to get the job done quickly, effectively and at a minimum downtime for our customers.
AmTech also offers the more traditional blasting services known as sandblasting or sand blasting, using basic crystalline silica sand as a blast media. When sandblasting with silica sand, exceptional precautions are taken to insure the safety of crew members and any others located in the general area of the sandblasting, as crystalline silica can cause serious or fatal respiratory disease. Amtech performs traditional crystalline silica sand blasting within sealed negative pressure environments where sand blasting operators are fully isolated from the blast dust in protective suits with outside supplied air. Substitutes for silica sand are used whenever they are suitable for the job. At AmTech's Abrasive Blasting Services, the safety of our employees and the general public is Job One.
In many cases high-pressure water is ideally suited to clean and abrade surfaces that may be damaged by other means of abrasive blasting. We can also add controlled amounts of certain abrasive media to the hydroblast to achieve custom results.
