What is Sand Blasting?
Commonly known as abrasive blasting, sand or grit blasting is used to expose the aggregates within a hardened concrete, giving it a rustic and attractive look, by eroding the surface layer.
There are four general grades of abrasion, with each one producing a matt finish featuring textures varying from those resembling sand paper (brush blasting) to more coarse textures (light blasting) and blasting that exposes large amounts of aggregate (medium, heavy blasting).
During the process, the colour of the cement will initially dominate, then the sand colour will progressively show with the coarse aggregates being revealed during medium and heavy sand blasting.
