2M SANDBLASTING
Application

Applications at glass

The sandblast
roughens the surface of the glass, thus it becomes matte. The degree of roughness, the result on the surface, depends on the grain size, the type of the blasting material, the blasting pressure, the distance to the item, the duration of the blasting process, and the angle of impact. We obtain our matte surfaces by treating them with very fine blasting material in order to achieve a satin-like surface.

Design applications:

  • Mattings and Engravings in once or multi-level operations
  • Patterns, letterings and logos
  • Surface patterns and surfaces

Technique applications:

  • Matting glass
  • Engraving glass
  • Matting mirrors
  • Blasting holes in glass
  • Parts of luminaire
  • Bottles
  • Pipes, half-shells, glass cups, vases, drinking glass
  • Washbasins

Application at wood

Depending on the duration, the blasting material and the wood type, the most diverse results are achieved with sand- or glass bead blasting. The result is always an even and natural looking surface.

The stronger and longer the blasting process, the easier it is to create a slightly or even strongly weathered impression, which provides softwood with a particularly smooth and beautiful look. Regarding hardwood, the surface remains rather even. Wood pores are worked out particularly clearly, which is very useful when it comes to modern surfaces.

The range of our offerings is significantly increased by providing effects that can be achieved by blasting parts of, or patterns on the items. This provides wood industry professionals with endless design opportunities for use in the manufacture of high-quality furniture.

  • Furniture manufacture
  • Renovations
  • Removing varnish from wooden surfaces
  • Cleaning of old wooden surfaces
  • Furniture surface rustic-style
  • Modern surface effects
  • Decorative design with patterns, logos and letterings on even surfaces
  • New furniture components in rustic style
  • Kitchen fronts, window frames, furniture, wooden doors, sculptures, etc.

Application at stone

Different stones
with different features for various purposes.
Beyond the classical writing board with deep-engraved letters, many other techniques have been developed. The possibilities now are almost endless, and it is up to the designer whether he wants to create something truly unique, taking advantage of what this unique material offers. Surface matted in multiple depths, engraved to any technical detail, whether as inscription on memorial tablets, or as a functional anti-slip strip on floor slabs - be creative.

  • Engravings on headstones
  • Anti-slip strips on floor and stair panels
  • Commemorative plaques
  • Decorative design with patterns, logos and letterings on even surfaces
  • Worktops
  • Cleaning of rocks
  • Blasting of technical cutouts

Application at ceramics

Ceramic material
can be processed easily through sandblasting.
Cutouts, or holes, it is easy to obtain any shape. Matte surfaces to increase slip-resistance, engravings for subsequent inscriptions as well as embellishments are easy to produce.

The cleaning for historical purposes completes our range of offerings.

High-quality processing of various forms leaves room for the designer's creativity.

Examples of materials that can be blasted:

  • Bricks
  • Glazed ceramics 
  • Ceramic tiles 
  • Porcelain
  • Tableware (letterings)
  • Washstands
  • Vases
  • Cups
  • Washbasin cutouts
  • Tile holes and cutouts
  • Anti-slip protection on steps
  • Cleaning of diamond-tipped tools
  • Cleaning (flower stands, roof and floor tiles etc.)

Application at metal

Hard material - soft edit

resulting from these very technical blasting operations, a big variety of fine treatments were developed, which now are an integral part of our portfolio.

Old automotive parts, cherished and cared for by classic car aficionados, get a gentle treatment. Old varnishes and rust get removed until the item is ready for a new varnish.

Classy stainless steel or aluminium parts are additionally treated with glass bead. The surface gets compacted, yet the material is protected and the surface obtains a satin finish.

Examples of materials that can be blasted:

  • Aluminium, stainless steel, steel, iron, brass
  • Items made of iron are treated with chilled iron grit or steel corundum.
  • Chilled iron grit removes persistent rust or surface coatings, while steel corundum is used subsequently in order to get a smooth surface.
  • Stainless steel, aluminium and brass are cleaned or refined with glass beads.

Examples of application:

  • Cast components like park bench parts, basins, statues, car and motorcycle parts, various metal parts, rims, frames,  bicycle frames, radiators, fences, metal cases, weapons, miniature models, baking trays, ...
  • Cleaning and removing varnish from metal surfaces
  • Decorative design with patterns, logos and letterings on even surfaces
  • Classic car parts: Gentle treatment of old motor and car body parts

Application at plastics

During the sandblasting process
fine blasting particles are shot through a nozzle onto the material. The kinetic energy bounces off soft, rubber-like materials without leaving any harm, while harder plastics can be roughened beautifully, and transparent materials become translucent. Even brittle and hard plastics can be treated similarly to ceramics or glass.

By using this innovative technique, especially in modern architecture, the variety of plastics achieved through sandblasting can be presented in a unique and distinctive way. Depending on the type of use, mainly acrylic glass (e.g. Plexiglas®) and polycarbonates are used. Not only surfaces, but also fittings and pipes used primarily for interior works, as well as matte materials e.g. for promotional purposes.

This means a unique result for your application.

Examples of materials that can be blasted:

  • Acrylic glass (e.g. Plexiglas®) 
  • Polycarbonate
  • Polyesters
  • Epoxy
  • FRP

Examples of application:

  • Letters
  • Press dies 
  • Design and anti-reflection coating of plastics in TV studios

  • Gentle treatment of old motor and car body parts 

Lettering and logo

All letterings and logos
can be executed in matte or clear design on the front as well as on the back side of the item.
Almost all letterings can be engraved (depending on the material). With the possibility to refine your item with varnish, gold or silver coating! We offer gold coating in 3 different quality levels: gold leaf, bronze-gold, gold lacquer.
