Protecting your machinery is what we do at Tauranga Sandblasting. We clean grime, rust or old paint off its metal surfaces and cover it with an effective protective coating where appropriate, so you can have your equipment looking good and doing their job for as long as possible.
We make sure we do the job quickly, and on the day and time we said we would. That way your machine can be earning its keep till the last moment and be back out there as scheduled.
Whether you have an excavator, bulldozer, bitumen tanker, crane or grader that is being refitted, rebuilt, rebranded or simply in need of a clean. You can entrust it to us and know it will be cared for and come out perfectly, ready for years of more use.
The team at Tauranga Sandblasting are experts at removing rust, paint, soil, oil and grime build up from metal surfaces – whether on bodywork, working surfaces or moving parts.
Abrasive blasting allows us to not only clean surfaces, but to get into all the little nooks and crannies you could never reach by hand or with power tools to clean out the rust and dirt.
Abrasive blasting is also a quick and easy way to clean the wrong branding off machinery and get the substrate ready for a new coat of paint in your correct colours.
Our site in Mt Maunganui is equipped with a 20m x 6m x 6m protected blasting booth, housed inside an even larger clean warehouse and paint shop measuring 60m x 40m x 20m. So we can accommodate even the largest earthmovers.
We also have a fully equipped mobile unit we can bring to your place if your machine is immobile for whatever reason.
Abrasive blasting is only one part of the process to protect your machinery. More often than not, we follow this up by applying a protective coating or combination of coatings – whether paint or powder coat. We specialise in the use of Altex, PPG and International paint systems to give your heavy machinery the best, most practical protection available.
Despite our name, at Tauranga Sandblasting we don't actually use sand for our blasting. Instead, we use specially imported garnet particles that are inert and free from the harmful silicates you find in ordinary sand.
The fact that garnet is so inert also means that it contains no particles that may remain behind on the abrasive blasted surface and react with the metal, giving you the assurance that the surfaces we treated will remain in good order for a long time to come.
