Billings Media Blasting has been extremely busy slurry blasting, walnut shell blasting and sandblasting in Connecticut this fall and winter. We have been all over the shoreline walnut shell blasting boat bottoms bringing our tally for the year to over a 100 boats!
Along with blasting boat bottoms we have performed sandblasting in a chemical room on rusty structural steel at Guida’s Dairy in New Britain CT in order to prepare it for paint.
Last week we did some experimenting with our slurry blasting system running 320 garnet through it to remove soot from brick. What an amazing job it did it did not even touch the brick leaving it looking like new, we believe it is going to open a lot of restoration possibilities! The benefits of the slurry are becoming more and more with the dustless blasting aspect and now the ability to be extremely gentle.
Hopefully before the end of this year we are going to be experimenting with Dry Ice Blasting. We have never done it or seen it work other then You Tube videos. We want to see if it will be a worth while investment as it can be another tool to offer our customers in order to meet there blasting needs.
Billings Media Blasting wants to wish everyone a happy holiday and a happy new year!
