Technical information and processing details

By using sandblasting, ceramic surfaces can be labeled, engraved,  and subsequently coated with bronze, gold, silver, or colored varnish. Bricks and fibre cement can be cleaned by blasting – even severe soiling disappears. Shiny surfaces can be matted and made more slip-resistant. Just like with glass, the same goes for letterings and logos. Technical blasting, e.g. hole blasting for installation cutouts etc.

Note: It must be emphasized that when blasting on thicker materials, the wall of the hole should never trend in a 90 degree angle to the surface, but, depending on the material, taper slightly. No liability will be assumed for damages to these parts.
