Shrink Wrap and Abrasive Blasting

Updated: Jun 28, 2019

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.
