Billions of people in the world walk everyday everywhere, maybe you’re reading this while walking to your workplace; the bottom-line is that it has been the oldest mode of travel. But at one point in the history they probably got either exhausted, lazier, wiser or all three at once. Hence, they started travelling on animals; donkeys, elephants et cetera. With the invention of the wheel in 3,500 BC, things got easier. It came to a point where your horse cart that gloriously rode along the streets depicted your social and financial status. In 1885 Karl Benz from Germany invented the first ever motor vehicle. Today, looking at the prototype self-driven car, it’s clear that we’ve come a very long way.
The automobile industry advanced itself to a very high extent with the industrial revolution. It created countless job opportunities and entrepreneurs were well motivated. In 2017, there are nearly 1.2 billion vehicles in the world. Since now it is a quite normal thing for a family to afford a car or for a Hollywood celebrity to have the same type of a car but in multiple colors, the importance of appearance has climbed its way up in the priority list of humans. Maybe one needs to repaint his old car in the same color or maybe one needs to go for a two tone or it could be someone in the garage who wants to get back the usual look of his/her heavily scratched car.
Can you simply paint your vehicle with a brush and a bucket of paint? You can’t; without any sort of argument, it cannot be done in such a way. It’s in fact a very important and sensitive sector of automobile maintenance. Just like how you would cleanse your face before applying beauty products, your vehicle and its metallic surface needs a clean-up before being colored. Sandblasting NSW is considered as one of the most effective and frequently practiced methods of cleaning metallic surfaces of vehicles prior to coat any sort of a paint.
The procedure is quite simple; a coarse material such as sand or bead propelled at the surface that requires being wiped clean at a high velocity. What’s so special about it? The cutting effect of the rough material improves the surface quality and the mechanical performance at the same time. This method ensures a greater adhesive force in the finalized work piece which in turn helps the good industrial coatings to be properly set and to be well durable. Unlike in shot blasting, the necessity for the surface to be constantly checked is minimized in a considerable amount.
The requirement of the least machinery has made this a regularly chosen method. It requires only a compressor, a blasting pot and a nozzle. Not just automobile maintenance, this can simply be used to eradicate the unwanted deposits. The adequate knowledge on which material should be used in the process of sand blasting gives you countless opportunities in the field of cleaning.This method has its downs too; air-borne diseases due to the use of sand is the most prominent, and that can be easily solved by using good substitutes such as copper slag, walnut shells and various synthetic powdered abrasives. Taking necessary precautions to cover your skin can protect you from high speed particles impacting on you.
As the technology is advancing day by day, the humanity will invent even more efficient and easy methods. But for the time being, it is ideal to choose the best recommended methods like these. Because no one wants to wake up to bubbles in their newly pained car.
