Wet sandblasting is an excellent alternative to traditional sandblasting. It’s highly effective and very efficient at smoothing surfaces by removing rust, paint, stains, or any unwanted material. Moreover, because water is used, wet sandblasting does not create environmental pollution. Plus, it’s dust-free, and all foreign material removed by blasting is rinsed and flushed out by the jet of water. No wonder it’s quickly becoming one of our most popular services in Perth WA, and even all throughout Australia.
Sandblasting provides a similar effect to that of using sandpaper, but it can clean and smooth a surface much faster than you would by hand. It can reach corners and crevices that you can’t when doing manual labour. The purpose of sandblasting is to restore and preserve the freshness of certain materials, giving them a brand new look.
How does it work? Water and abrasive material are mixed to create an abrasive spray. This mixture is blasted on the surface, breaking away all undesired coating corrosion or other undesirable substances to create desired finish. Wet sandblasting is very versatile as well. The equipment can be used with different grit sizes. Baking soda or plastic pellets may also be used. The higher the grit size used, the more abrasive the sandblasting action will be. Each media then provides a clear finish on the surface.

In order to manage risk under the WHS Regulations, a duty holder must: a) identify reasonably foreseeable hazards that could give rise to the risk b) eliminate the risk so far as is reasonably practicable c) if it is not reasonably practicable to eliminate the risk, minimise the risk so far as is reasonably practicable by implementing control measures in accordance with the hierarchy of risk control d) maintain the implemented control measure so that it remains effective e) review, and if necessary revise all risk control measures so as to maintain, so far as is reasonably practicable, a work environment that is without risks to health and safety. This Code provides guidance on managing the risks of abrasive blasting by following a systematic process that involves:
- dentifying hazards
- if necessary, assessing the risks associated with these hazards
- implementing control measures, and
