Sandblasting is used to remove existing striping or painted curbs. However, this process is more applicable to asphalt and outdoor parking lots. Unlike shotblasting, sandblasting is not a self-contained removal process and requires more attention to clean-up and safety. Despite these differences, shotblasting and sandblasting are both effective means to efficiently remove striping.
Similarly, Shotblasting is a service we offer to remove existing striping and to prepare a concrete surface for painting. Small metal beads chip away paint or etch a concrete surface with a self contained vacuum. This service is especially useful for warehouses, distribution facilities and parking garages.
