Lets start the year with offering dry ice blasting to CT. Now for some reflection on where Billings Media Blasting started. We began as a baking soda blasting company ready to set the world on fire. We soon realized that baking soda couldn’t take care of every blasting demand there was. So we decided to dive into traditional sandblasting which we found opened many doors in rust removal and mill scale removal for steel preparation. Soon after that we found that baking soda still had many negatives whether it be burning vegetation or even eating through out electronic controls, therefore we got into blasting with crushed walnut shells a close alternative to soda without the many negative effects.
Finally in 2012 after attending a couple sspc shows we decided to look into slurry “dustless” blasting. From there we tried it and found that it is another great tool for some situations to eliminate dust concerns and yet be able to be extremely gentle for restoration and cleaning of stone, brick and concrete.
As 2012 was coming to an end Billings Media Blasting decided to take the final plunge into dry ice blasting. After looking more into it it appeared that there wasn’t to many dry ice blasters in CT so we are now in the dry ice blasting business. Dry ice is again another “tool” in our arsenal of tools for being able to complete any blasting job. More posts will be coming soon on dry ice blasting as we play with it and try to find its best uses.
