Today there is an alternative to both sandblasting and chemical stripping your automobile.Plastic Media Blasting has quickly become the most popular and excepted method.
Plastic Media is mainly used for thin gauge sheet metals. This method uses plastic granules which are harder than paint but softer than the base material. Using a high-volume, low pressure application, the media will cut, shear and lift the paint without affecting the substrate. Since it is a dry process, there is no flash rust after stripping and most importantly the plastic won’t warp or pit the metal. It’s non-corrosive and safe for all metal, stainless steel, fiberglass, plastics, aluminum and moving parts. The only short fall is it won’t remove rust… hence may require other blasting methods.
