Construction

There are many situations in which you could use mobile sand blasting, but do you really know how it all works?

There is a strong jet or air and a blasting agent, and as the name in the title suggests, it is a like sand mixture.

This mixture is blasted with a high speed through the hose and the nozzle (kind of like a normal garden hose, just on a whole other level!). You use this on a surface you desire, as due to the high pressure and the sand mixture it loosens the surface particles. It can clean and remove things like paint, rust, etc. so something that you thought couldn’t get clean, actually can.
