SAND BLASTING

 

Mike Grimís Truck Wreck Specialists, Inc. has a state of the art media blasting facility.  This facility is housed in an environmentally safe media blasting booth.  The process of media blasting strips paint from varying surfaces without warping or pitting which often occurs with the sand blasting process.  The material used for this type of blasting is a fine plastic bead-like media.  The surfaces that Mike Grimís recommends to be media blasted includes steel, heavier gage aluminum, and stainless steel.  Mike Grimís has used this process successfully on such materials including the following:  antique cars, boats, boat trailers, race trailers, dresser drawers, stainless steel drums, buses, motor cycle frames and tanks, race car frames, tractor trailer frames, wheels, complete cars, intake manifolds, and valve covers.
