Why Sandblasting Is an Ideal Abrasive Blasting Method for Preparing Concrete Surfaces

Posted on: 16 May 2017

Sandblasting is a surface preparation technique that involves accelerating a stream of high-speed sand particles against a surface, so as to shape it, give it a smooth or rough texture (or something in between), or remove contaminants from it. Sandblasting has so many applications in the construction world. Take a look at why it is highly favoured when it comes to blasting concrete surfaces.  It's versatile One of the main reasons why sandblasting is highly recommended by many concrete contractors is because the extent of blasting may vary from light cleaning to remove surface contaminants like rust, paint and scale; eroding a thin " [Read More]

How to Deal With Iron Staining on Stainless Steel Surfaces

Posted on: 1 May 2017

Stainless steel surfaces can develop rust spots if the stainless steel is exposed to harsh environments, such as saltwater, for extended durations. Those rust spots (iron stains) can cause the stainless steel to pit or have scour marks. This article discusses some of the solutions that you can try in order to remove those rust stains so that the stainless steel regains its attractive appearance. Use Cleaning Creams You can remove minor iron stains on stainless steel surfaces by applying a domestic cleaning cream on the affected area. [Read More]

Applications for High Frequency Electrical Induction

Posted on: 14 April 2017

Electrical induction is used in many applications, including welding, bending, heating and hardening processes. High frequency induction transfers energy at an efficient rate compared with lower frequency processes, and this means it is preferred in a number of industrial settings in Australia nowadays. Hardening High frequency electrical charges are induced in the process of induction hardening. A metalworking process, this procedure uses martensitic transformation in the metal itself to create a tougher and more durable layer in the metal. [Read More]
