An abrasive blast system is a surface treatment method widely used in various industries for different purposes. Abrasive blasting is a method in which abrasive materials are accelerated by means of compressed air through a blasting nozzle. Abrasive blasting machines are largely used to remove particle of rust, corrosion, coatings, grime, and other unwanted substances. Machines such as sandblasting equipment are used for preparation of surface before coating or other surface treatment.
The major function of an abrasive blast system is to strip off the paint, rust, and similar contaminants from a surface. This provides a clean and clear surface, refurbishing the product and holding the coating. This factor proves beneficial for manufacturers to re-launch their product in the market.

Moreover, abrasive blast systems are used in place of labor-intensive cleaning methods, such as brushing, thereby speeding up the process by almost 75%. All these factors drive the market for abrasive blast systems. Furthermore, abrasive mediums are generally inexpensive and they can be used for several times. Blasting offers additional advantages in the process, as it cleans surfaces efficiently and at a higher speed than the traditional techniques. This method is also considered an effective way of removing rust from metal surfaces. Also, use of robotic abrasive machines reduces the manpower and ineffectiveness.
