We can match the correct abrasive media such as sand, baking soda, Dry ice, corn cob, walnut shell and more to your specific project needs. We only use “green abrasive media” that is environmentally friendly and is non toxic. Black Diamond Blasting is also a Lead certified firm that can safely and effectively remove lead based paints or coatings from practically any surface.
Blasting with walnut shell is particularly effective where the surface of the substrate under its coat of paint, varnish, stain, etc. should remain mostly unchanged or otherwise unimpaired. It is also non-toxic, natural and biodegradable, causes no health or environmental hazards.Corn Cob
Corn Cob is very effective for blasting varnishes, stains and paint from wood, brick, fiberglass and excellent for log cabin restoration. Corn cob blasting is accomplished with the same equipment as used for sand blasting. Because corn cob blasting grit is considerably less aggressive than sand, it is often categorized as a “soft abrasive” and does not etch glass or foul bearings and is frequently used to clean electric motors and machinery with hydraulic cylinders. It is a non-toxic blast cleanin media that causes no health or environmental hazards,its also biodegradable and preserves micro finishes.
