EAI performs abrasive blasting, which is defined as cleaning or preparing a surface by forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material against it. It is usually explained as the use of a material against another material to make it smoother, remove surface contaminants or to roughen a surface. It is also the appropriate term for what is known as glass bead blasting or sandblasting. The process of sandblasting consists of propelling abrasive material from a sandblasting nozzle, directing the abrasive material towards a targeted surface such as concrete, steel, brick or rock. Abrasive blasting can improve a surface’s appearance by removing stains, manufacturing compound residue, corrosion and tool marks.
