Sandblasting and Dry Abrasive Media Blasting Services in Connecticut

Remove Rust and Paint and Prepare Your Surfaces for Coating

Sandblasting has been around for more than 150 years, and while we now use more than sand to clean and prepare your surfaces, the basic technique remains the same. Nothing removes paint and rust off metal parts like abrasive blasting, and we at Bill Bender know full well that nothing’s better at preparing metal surfaces for a new finish.

When the US Navy needed a better way to clean and protect its ships in the 1930s, it turned to sandblasting. You can add new life to your metal surfaces, too. Here’s a quick list of just some of the things we treat with abrasive blasting:

  • Body panels and bumpers on cars and trucks
  • Motorcycle components
  • Vehicle frames
  • Aluminum and alloy wheels and rims
  • Brake calipers
  • Exhaust systems, including manifolds and headers
  • Detailed metalwork, including furniture and sculpture
  • Bicycle frames
  • Aluminum and wrought iron furniture
  • Cast iron radiators, including highly decorative designs
  • Baseboard heating units

Sandblasting requires the right equipment and the sort of deft touch that only comes from experience. Bill Bender Painting & Wallcovering has been serving clients throughout Connecticut since 1978 with custom dry abrasive blasting solutions for:

  • Steel
  • Iron
  • Aluminum
  • Copper
  • Brass
  • Fiberglass
  • Carbon Fiber
  • Magnesium-coated metals
  • A wide range of composites

Is Dry Abrasive Blasting Right for My Job?

Before we refinish metal surfaces, we tend to reach for the sandpaper. Too often, though, that’s not enough: for rusted and pitted surfaces, and those with hard-to-reach details, only sandblasting can remove what doesn’t belong while preparing your metal for a vibrant, long-lasting, protective new finish.

Bill Bender Painting & Wallcovering specializes in the most difficult blasting jobs our clients face: functionally critical automotive and motorcycle restoration, industrial components, and highly detailed metal furniture, sculpture, and radiator work. We also love to help customers with simpler jobs, like helping prepare old bike frames or well-loved tools and hardware for new finishes and new leases on life.

A Lasting Finish Starts with Good Surface Preparation

Every metal surface is subject to wear and tear, and most are prone to rust or corrosion. Our sandblasting services help our Connecticut neighbors eliminate every last bit of surface damage…and they help ensure that no matter what kind of finish you apply to beautify and protect your metal goods, it will go on smoothly and adhere firmly.

Dry abrasive cleaning methods like sandblasting do more than knock out rust and strip off paint. They also produce a surface that looks beautifully smooth to the human eye, but that’s etched with tiny little pits at the microscopic level. This etching allows paint, powder coats, and other finishes to grab onto your metalwork, delivering an exceptionally smooth finish that resists peeling and flaking.

At Bill Bender Painting & Wallcovering, we know better than anyone that a good finish depends on a well-prepared surface. In 35 years, we haven’t seen a cleaning method that comes close to sandblasting when it comes to preparing metal for a great finish. That’s why we take such care with our dry abrasive blasting work.

How Much Does Sandblasting Cost?

We use a variety of sandblasting equipment and an even wider array of dry abrasive formulas to achieve just the right results for each piece we treat. The cost of a given sandblasting job depends on the type and amount of material you need treated, and the specific abrasives we need to do the job right.
