Whether you're restoring an entire car, or just a rusty old suspension part, you're eventually going to want to get down to the surface that the part was originally constructed from. Steel rusts, aluminum oxidizes, even some plastic loses its ability to hold paint after repeated exposure to the elements. You can go the route of chemical paint strippers or dual action sanders, but both methods have serious disadvantages you need to at least be aware of.There really isn't a way to get down to bare metal more efficiently than media blasting. Every other method of stripping is an attempt to get around the major disadvantage of media blasting, namely, the investment in rather costly equipment. At Motorcity Metal Fab. we have made the investment for you, with our large capacity booth and our various size cabinets we can handle any project in a Timely manner and at a reasonable price.

Abrasive blasting is the operation of forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material against a surface under high pressure to smooth a rough surface, roughen a smooth surface, shape a surface, or remove surface contaminants. A pressurized fluid, typically compressed air, or a centrifugal wheel is used to propel the blasting material (often called the media).

There are several variants of the process, using various media; some are highly abrasive, whereas others are milder. The most abrasive are shot blasting (with metal shot) and sandblasting (with sand). Moderately abrasive variants include glass bead blasting (with glass beads) and media blasting with ground-up plastic stock or walnut shells and corncobs. A mild version is sodablasting (with baking soda). In addition, there are alternatives that are barely abrasive or nonabrasive, such as ice blasting and dry-ice blasting.your paragraph here.
