What we can do for you

The team at Tauranga Sandblasting are experts at removing rust, paint and dirt from metal surfaces.

Abrasive blasting allows us to not only clean surfaces, but to get into all the little nooks and crannies you could never reach by hand or with power tools to clean out the rust and dirt.

It's also much quicker if we do it. And you'd be surprised at how little it costs.

Abrasive blasting is only one part of the process to protect your valuables. Depending on the nature and intended use of your valuable, we can apply a protective coating or combination of coatings while the metal is still pristine.

How we meet our responsibilities towards you, our staff and the environment

Despite our name, at Tauranga Sandblasting we don't actually use sand for our blasting. Instead, we use specially imported garnet particles that are inert and free from the harmful silicates you find in ordinary sand.

The fact that garnet is so inert also means that it contains no particles that may remain behind on the abrasive blasted surface and react with the metal, giving you the assurance that the surfaces we treated will remain in good order for a long time to come.

"For the last 7 years we have used Tauranga Sandblasting to blast and re-paint onsite structural steel, refrigeration pipe work and ancillary equipment. Where it is possible, any equipment is relocated to their enclosed and environmentally protected processing facility.

Tauranga Sandblasting have always carried out any work in a professional manner, with due concerns for any environmental, operational and compliance issues before they arise. In conjunction with a paint supplier's specification, we have utilised their experience in recommending  and applying paint systems for long term applications in our harsh environment.

To date, all work done is performing to specification which reflects Tauranga Sandblasting's attention to suitability, preparation and application of paint systems."
