What is Abrasive Blasting

Abrasive blasting, more commonly known as sandblasting, 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.



Shrink Wrap Solution

Abrasive blasting project is one of the area where shrink wrap is an absolute necessity. Shrink wrap can provide total encapsulation of your project during abrasive blasting. Abrasive blasting involves propelling high-pressure torrent of abrasive materials against a surface. The purpose is usually to roughen, flatten or change the shape of the surface. During the process, a large amount of fine dust is released and covers the area. If not contained, the fine dust particles may be an environmental hazard.

Shrink wrapping will contain the dust and keep the area safe from dust pollution.



Benefits of using Shrink Wrap in Sandblasting projects

Shrink Wrap provides encapsulation of scaffolding structures around buildings undergoing abrasive blasting. It traps any debris coming out of the blasting area. Thus, ensuring workers and passerby are not exposed to harm.

We guarantee total encapsulation on site. We offer a sealing process that leaves no space between scaffolding ledgers and floors/ceilings. Besides protecting the exterior environment, we also provide containment to maintain temperature. As well as provide humidity to assist in cladding and repainting.

You can work with EnCaPS by either buying our shrink wrap films or using our experienced teams. We secure your structure from emanating dust particles. We offer an uninterrupted and tight wrap around a scaffold. Well, this protects the building and the surrounding area for the duration of the project.

Protection against harsh weather conditions

As humans, we cannot control how the weather affects us. Sometimes it may even derail plans we may have already set. Construction projects will require temporary protection against the weather for a certain period. However, this protection may be needed for an even longer period. This will require sheeting. There are various types of sheeting, but, today we will only be analysing shrink wrap sheeting.


Properties of shrink wrap

Using shrink wrap for protection against adverse weather effects is greatly beneficial since it conforms to the object it is protecting, it provides a secure and weather-proof cover. This ensures that construction schedules are on time and production cost is greatly reduced. Also, it provides quality climate control by allowing natural daylight in thus ensuring work can go on even during the winter season.



Benefits of using shrink wrap

In the case of construction, shrink wrap is highly compatible with frameworks and scaffolding as it provides expert emissions control using airlocks, impenetrable walls and many more. It also protects hazardous materials such as lead, dust and asbestos.
