Plastic grit media blasting.
A less aggressive way to blast clean your parts including car bodies. Employing Plastic media is a higher cost than conventional blasting media due to the price of materials and the extra time it takes to complete the work.
The result is smooth and bright. For further information please call our office. Hard Plastic & Blast Media. with compounded glass filler for additional cutting ability.
For fast rust & paint removal. This product works we know we use it in our blast room & cabinets. Bulk discounts available.Can be used in standard blast cabinets & Soda pots.
Outperforms Soda Blasting and glass bead. Faster cheaper and a lot more effective in removing paint, light rust and general grime.Not caustic as soda, no skin, eye or breathing effects. Although a face mask and eye protection should be used.No adverse effects, when trapped between panel work, where soda being caustic, may damage steel & Aloy work if left in place when damp.No fear of component distortion, which can occur with conventional blasting products. Plastic Media, Plastic Blast Media or Plastic Stripping first introduced in the mid-1980s by the United States military to provide an environmentally acceptable alternative to chemical strippers.
Soft enough to not cause damage on the substrates, but aggressive enough just to remove paint, rust and coatings, without peening or damaging the surface or substrate. Unlike chemical strippers, plastic media was found to be biodegradable, non-toxic and non-polluting and the process was accepted as the ideal method of achieving delicate surface preparation for a wide variety of materials and components. At low pressures it was also observed that you were able to re-use and recycle the plastic between 3 and 12 times, depending on the hardness of the plastic – PBM, soon acquired a reputation as the ideal abrasive for the environmentally conscious blaster. Alternative to Soda Blasting and much faster too.
Plastic Stripping Media is designed to outperform Soda Blast, it cuts quicker, removes paint faster, leaves a smoother surface and can be reused multiple times. additionally, it is environmentally inert and is NOT caustic, unlike soda.
Available in a range of grit size.
PlasBlast 2G with compounded glass filler for additional cutting ability, ideal for fast rust & paint removal.
A common and very cost-effective way of stripping paint and coatings from ferrous and non-ferrous components is too acid or caustic dipping. However, although recognized as an inexpensive way of conducting this process, stripping of items such as a car body can give rise to numerous negative effects. The use of these aggressive chemical strippers can, for example, leave residual chemicals entrapped in the frames, joints and structure of a car, vehicle body or panel. Additionally, the inside of the vehicle body and panel will have been pained dipped by the manufacturer and this will then be removed by the acid/caustic stripper and cannot be replaced, leaving the inside of the body shell/panel open to possible corrosion from within. As an alternative process, only strips visible areas on a selective basis. Ideally suited not only to paint removal from steel and aluminium bodies, it will also work perfectly on composite and glass fibre vehicles and panels, with no fear of component distortion, which can occur with conventional blasting.

Several incarnations later, plastic media has developed into an abrasive that is used worldwide and has many different types, gauged by the hardness of the raw material.
