Sandblasting Primer. Millennium Restoration We use finely ground silica sand clean and abrade a surface, typically metal, of any rust, paint or other unwanted surface materials. This is done by means of an air-powered pressure gun that fires out the sand at high velocity to impact with the intended surface. The sand is an high powered abrasive which strips metal down to its original finish. All sandblasters use said pressurized gun, an air compressor or pressurized air tank, a hand-held pressure gun with air hose and a hopper on top of the gun. The hose connects to the air tank, and the hopper is filled with silica sand.

White Metal Blasting: We are SSPC-PC 5 certified. White metal blast cleaning is used when a totally cleaned surface is required. This method of cleaning is defined as a blast cleaned surface with a gray-white uniform metallic color. It shall be free of all oil, grease, dirt, mill scale, rust, corrosion products, oxides, paint, stains, streaks or any other contaminant across 100% of every square inch.
Commercial Sandblasting Cleaning. We are SSPC-SP 6 certified. Commercial blast cleaned surface is defined as one in which all oil, grease, dirt, mill scale, rust and old paint have been completely removed from the blast cleaned surface, except that slight streaks, or discolorations caused by rust stain, mill scale oxides, or slight tightly adherent residues of paint or coating may remain. If the surface is pitted, slight residues of rust or paint may remain in the bottom of the pits. The slight discolorations mentioned above are limited to one-third of every square inch.
