Company History

 

People often ask how we got started in what can only be described as a mucky business.   Like many companies, Cleaning Consultants grew and diversified, starting in 1972 with a very basic but then state of the art steam cleaner, washing commercial vehicles. This quickly progressed to many years of cleaning livestock pens on farms, followed by cleaning and painting factory and garage floors.    Since those early days we have pioneered new methods of cleaning and paint stripping.

Blast cleaning was a natural progression.  It was pretty crude in the early 80’s but refinements like vacuum recovery blast cleaning with reduced dust was a great benefit in areas like the Channel Tunnel and London Underground.

Over the years the processes have evolved and there are numerous different blasting systems and materials in the market place. Each has its own benefits and limitations but we elected to pursue plastic media blasting for paint stripping classic car and aeroplane parts in particular, because of its ‘Green’ credentials - since largely re-cycled material is used, but we expanded also into the use of various grades of fine abrasives that not only remove paints, powder coating, wood stains, but also corrosion – something most other methods used in car restoration cannot do.

As we have grown we have been involved in all sorts of interesting projects but our core business has developed and our expertise honed to the point where our skilled operators are entrusted with some of the most valuable and exotic cars in the world, works of art, in stone, metalwork and bronze, as well as some remarkable buildings of historic interest.

During its 38 year’s trading, our organisation has worked for many Government and Local Authorities, and what used to be the Property Services Agency (PSA) that maintains the Military establishments and Royal Palaces. We have worked in The National Gallery, National Trust houses including Ham House, Uppark House, Hampton Court Palace, Goodwood House, Amberley Castle, for the British Museum, and also at a number of UK homes owned by the richest man in the world.

We worked for the Ministry Of Defence, The Royal Navy, The Royal Air Force, BAE (part of the Anglo French consortium which built Concorde), British Airways; we have been consulted on and carried out removal of radar reflective finishes on Warships for the Royal Navy, carried out trials and written reports on the efficient removal of paint from fibreglass hulled minesweepers, been consulted on the cleaning of the hulls of Atomic submarines and we periodically blast new components for Nuclear Submarines at our dedicated premises.

We have carried out paint removal from military and civilian aircraft, removed paint from Formula 1 racing cars, built and supplied equipment to organisations such as the RAF, and British Rail.    Through our endeavours to improve methods and standards, our activities have progressed naturally into design.   The company has been commissioned to design and build computer controlled machines and automated systems that are used in processes for cleaning and stripping a variety of materials and designed and won orders to build computer controlled equipment for an International company in the Auto Catalyst industry - in competition with 5 other International Companies. Our MD is the individual holder of Ministry of Defence Standard approval 80-194 for a specific blast media.

 Another interesting development is the technique we use to efficiently and gently clean fire damaged surfaces.  No amount of hand washing can achieve the same results.

To compliment this, we have developed methods to enhance not only the end result for our customers, but also improved working practices for our operatives, building strong working relationships with all concerned.  We are now in the process of sharing these developments with other blast cleaning companies, through the manufacture of our innovative products.

Having perfected the art of gentle blast cleaning, what really makes us stand out from most other blast cleaning companies is the huge variety of industries we can cater for, as well as the needs of the individual consumer.

Further evolvement into using our finishing techniques for fabricators and manufacturers has taken place in recent years, widening even further the scope for variety of work for our skilled operatives at our yard premises in Loxwood, near Billingshurst. The facilities have expanded and developed greatly since those early days when Jamie King-Wilson started cleaning lorries and farm livestock pens in 1972 with that steam cleaning machine towed behind a hotted-up Morris Minor!

The old Morris Minor was replaced long ago and our steam cleaning machine isn’t used too often these days, but  Jamie still remains at the helm. Our diverse portfolio of work continues to grow because of his honesty and integrity in a demanding economy. The company's exemplary customer service (backed by hundreds of customer testimonials) and the  high standards of it's  employees, ensure that this expert service will continue for many years to come.

We don’t spend huge amounts of money on marketing and advertising and we don’t go to trade shows.  We simply don’t have the time and the costs involved would have to be passed on to our customers.   The majority of our work comes from recommendations or from existing customers who have experienced that our methods do exactly what is required.

If we had a company motto, it would probably be "If a job's worth doing, it's worth doing well." We may not be the cheapest blast cleaners around, but we pride ourselves in the fact that we do things well, with a degree of finesse and in a way we would expect for ourselves.  Jamie clearly has inherited his great, great grandfather's genes - see our Featured Article on St. Pancras.

Paint Removal

Car Paint Removal by Plastic Media Dry Stripping                                                 

The method we use to remove paint from cars and motorcycles is Plastic Media Dry Stripping. This has replaced the old sand blasting methods which are now illegal. Plastic Media Dry Stripping was initially developed for the aerospace industry. This blast cleaning technique uses millions of tiny particles of angular graded plastic propelled at the surface to be paint stripped in a stream of fast moving compressed air.

The paint is removed by the chipping and scratching action of the sharp edged pieces of plastic. These plastic particles are relatively soft and lightweight. On steel panels the plastic media does not mark the surface of the metal and so allows the removal of paint from thin steel panels.

There is no distortion because there is no heat generated and the plastic media is not hard enough to break the surface of the steel. Lower pressure is required using plastic media blasting, which is beneficial, not only in avoiding distortion, but also in preventing the tiny particles of plastic from breaking down too quickly. This enables us to recover it for filtration and re-use (plastic media is some 10 times more expensive than normal abrasive media).We need to blast about 3.5 tonnes of plastic media at the average bodyshell to remove the paint.

Plastic media blasting can be used to remove paint from aluminium and fibreglass too. More operator skill is required and smaller grades of plastic media and even lower pressure are required, as these surfaces can be damaged because they are softer.

Cleaning Consultants (Contractors) Ltd. will always carry out a demonstration on a component or panel of a car if requested to do so (by arrangement) to try and establish what sort of finish can be expected prior to stripping a whole car. However we have seen on many occasions, that one individual panel is not necessarily representative of the whole car and we can in no way guarantee what the final finish will be on the whole project. Filler can hide all kinds of problems and you don’t know what you have got until it is all off.

We will undertake our work diligently and with every effort to produce the best possible finish for your car restoration project.

Alternative Methods

Alternative paint removal methods and why we don’t use them.

If you would like to know more about the various materials and terms used in the blasting world, take a look at the the pdf entitled 'Real technical stuff for the car restorer' in the downloads section.

Some people actually try to use bead blasting for paint removal, using glass bead. Unlike angular particles in plastic media, glass bead is harder and spherical and therefore needs to be propelled at the surface fairly hard to remove paint, it has no cutting edge, it relies on impact. This creates two problems - kinetic energy, which produces heat, which can cause distortion – and peening, a ‘hammering’ of the metal which can actually move the surface around (in microscopic terms) and even trap particles of debris and corrosion in the surface you want to clean. On chunky things the peening is not a problem but embedding dirtin the surface is counterproductive.
 

Chemical dipping has enjoyed some success in recent years, but it has also had its fair share of problems.

The process has to break down all the layers of paint, filler, underseal etc, but it also removes all the seam sealer, allowing capillary action to draw the aggressive chemicals into the seams of the shell.

If you know anything about soldering, prepare a solder joint in copper pipework and put the flux into the joint, warm it up, now try and get the flux out without taking the joint apart! You will never get rid of it. So when all those rust eating chemicals are in the seams and box sections of your car, how do you get it out?

Now chemicals that eat corrosion don't necessarily remove paint and rubbery seam sealer and underseal. But something in the process does remove them and it also removes all the lead loading in the panels, (upmarket body filler). Not much attacks lead - except heat ….. above 327degrees C.  You figure it out.

So it is true that the chemical dipping gets to places that we can't get to with our blasting processes - like the box sections, and it is also true that there may be some blast media residues left in the bodyshell, box sections or sills and the like. Whilst our dry media residues may be a nuisance, most of it will vibrate and shake out of the shell on the trip home and a quick hoover should do the rest, …… whereas the wet chemical residues are there to stay.

“Ah, but you get distortion in the panels when you use blasting”, I hear someone say.

True, it is a risk. But it is a risk in almost any process: at least you can see it and deal with it; unlike the chemical residues that are lurking in the seams that you can't get to.

We had a shell brought to us after it had been chemically dipped because the restorer was not happy with the finished result, the shell was not completely clean and there were corrosion run marks and surface corrosion in many areas, especially around the underfloor box sections, seams and overlaps. We took pictures of the car before we cleaned it by our methods.

By a quirk of fate, the owner became very ill and we had to store the car for nearly 8 months. During that time we observed the chemicals literally eating their way out of the body shell. For example, around the wheel arches, a little brown bubble would appear, which then exuded a brownish black liquid forming a little blob on the surface. This eventually dried up to leave a very corroded spot with a hole in the middle.

As this was coming from the inside out, what is it going to do to your new paint job? All over the shell was much the same where there were overlapped panels and spot welded joints, particularly in the boot and the underside of the car. The poor old painter gets it in the neck every time; when a blister appears in the paint, one automatically assume it is poor paintwork, but in truth the painter has probably done a perfectly good job on what appeared to be sound metal. He can't possibly be responsible for something that is eating its way out of the car. We hear about these problems from trade customers quite a lot.

So when deciding which method to use, have a good read on the forum pages to see how other people are getting on with various processes, and then make your mind up.

Soda blasting is also used, and does a good job generally, but it also has a residual problem, the Bicarbonate of Soda with a Ph of 7.5 (slightly alkaline) becomes something much more aggressive with a Ph of 9.5 when the temperature increases. So on a nice hot day your paint will be quietly pickling away at the seams and overlaps.   Soda blasting will remove paint, but not corrosion.

Cryogenic ice blasting is too slow, and very noisy.

Shot blasting or steel grit blasting is far too aggressive and will almost certainly cause damage to panels.

Sand blasting. Though the common name for blasting tiny particles at a surface to remove the coating is still 'sand blasting' using sand is illegal, because it releases respiratory damaging silica into the atmosphere, so the term should actually be grit blasting. There are good operators around who can strip the paint and underseal and remove corrosion all in one process by grit blasting, but we would recommend that you have a look at some work they have done, or talk to a previous customer before entrusting your precious classic car to them. operators with that skill are few and far between, and once it is all distorted and bent and rough to the touch there is no going back. We often hear of owners/restorers who presented a really good shell to a blasting contractor for blasting, they used coarse media, and the car was wrecked.

One of our customers is a Porsche restoration specialist.  He recently brought his 172nd car to us in 19 years trading. He hates the fact that he has to do a 1000 mile round trip to us from the West Country with every car, and although he has tried other companies and processes, (because time is money), he admits he keeps coming back because he gets the results he wants from us. Have a look at the link to his web site below, he mentions us lower down the page.

Corrosion Removal

Corrosion Removal
Once all the paint, filler and underseal, glue, etc have been removed using the plastic media blasting process, the corrosion should be visible and can be dealt with. (Sound deadening pads, oil, grease and all the other problem materials must be removed by hand or similar methods).

To remove the surface corrosion an abrasive that is hard enough to scour the surface clean must be used. It needs to be sharp and angular to cut into the corrosion on the surface of the metal but small enough to prevent the heat generation, hammering or peening action that has the potential to damage the panels. This is where a skilled operator is essential to minimise the risk of distortion. 

Because most of the work has already been done using the plastic media, the risk of overworking the surface with the hard abrasive is greatly reduced. There is less need to dwell in one place with the abrasive blast stream, it is this dwell that generates a tiny amount of heat and the stressing action that can cause distortion to panels. The finer the abrasive the less kinetic energy there is in the particle to dissipate when it hits the surface. This makes removal of the surface corrosion slower but leaves a very fine profile on the surface of the steel panel, which is a good key for the paint and any filler required. Using these fine materials is difficult technically because they don’t flow well in the equipment, and they make the operators job more difficult and visibility is a big problem anyway, but we have developed special lighting to help him see into the darkest corners

We then put a zinc phosphate treatment on the surface of the metal. This is an acid based material that is absorbed into the surface of the metal carrying with it a small amount of zinc. It is a metal pre-treatment not a paint, it is clear so hides nothing. It is also a rust converter so there is a chemical reaction that converts any corrosive salts to zinc strontium phosphate, a hard, black and chemically inert material. It effectively eats and solidifies the salts thus stabilising the metal. Without the phosphate there is a real risk of corrosion re-occurring if not protected with paint quickly.

Painting over
The phosphate is a chemical preparation that passivates the surface of the metal, killing corrosive salts and providing a chemical key on to which the paint molecules can lock. This, combined with the profile of the surface, provide a mechanical key that further aids paint adhesion.

The important point is that the product is not solvent based, therefore there is no problem of paint compatibility, you can use whatever paint you like.

Engine Cleaning

We can clean virtually any engine part as long as it is completely stripped down and sensitive areas are masked. Whether we use plastic, garnet, glass bead or vapour blast media very much depends on what we are taking off and what the engine part is made from, i.e. hard steel, mild steel, aluminium, etc.

We have cleaned whole engines, like the very rare Merlin engine from a Spitfire, all 26 litres of it.



 With any engine part that comes into contact with the oil we normally only clean with our plastic material, because it does not dig into the surface of the metal like grit could. If a tiny particle of grit were to dislodge from its location embedded in the metalwork of a sump say, it then could travel around in the engine with potentially damaging results, even though it is only microns in size. Using only plastic media inside the engine reduced this problem dramatically because it is not hard enough to dig into the metal and it is a soft material anyway, it would break down into dust unlike a bit of grit which could become a grinding paste.

Plastic media is capable of removing all the sealing compound and a lot of oily deposits and carbon residues. It is great for de-carbonising heads and ports etc..

On the outside of the engine we can use a range of materials and sometimes a combination of processes.

Often, customers want to clean the surfaces of their old engines but they want to retain the patena of use, they don’t want every little mark removed to make it look like a new pin, it needs to look clean but used. We work hard to achieve that look.

 

 

Wheels

We clean all types of wheels for motorcycles, cars, lorries, tractors, thorough to Formula 1, including steel, alloy or magnesium. We even clean wooden spoked wheels for vintage and veteran cars.

 

Sandblasting Wheels

The material and coating to be removed will dictate whether we use plastic media, grit or glass bead to achieve the required finish, sometimes all three. If the wheel is powdercoated it can increase the time taken substantially. Magnesium wheels often arrive for blasting and we take the paint off with plastic media only. They never look very good but if you grit blast them or glass bead them you cannot detect cracks in them when they are tested using dye penetrant. Later Ultrasonic crack detection processes can detect cracks even if there is a surface profile. The wheels need to be blasted with hard abbrasive to give them a profile if they are to be repainted. Just tell us what finish you want to acheive, we are usually able to meet customers’ requirements.

Glass Fibre Structures

The use of plastic media for stripping paint from glass fibre can be very effective, but can also have its problems.

Plastic media blast cleaning relies on small granules of plastic being propelled by air pressure through a nozzle onto a surface where they scratch and chip the paint to remove it from the surface. Whilst the plastic granules are less dense than alternative blasting media they are still fairly aggressive and do have a 'peppering action' when they hit the surface.

On some glass fibre finishes the gel coat is sound and hard, the panels having been manufactured using a press to ensure that bubbles are excluded from the lay‑up. However, some of the earlier cars were manufactured using, by today's standards, fairly primitive methods, in workshops where there was no temperature or humidity control and when the ratios of resin to catalyst were far more critical, with result that lay-­ups were often inconsistent and air entrapment within the lay‑up was a common problem.

The result is that air bubbles are often trapped in the lay‑up between the first coat of' mat and the gel coat, which is applied to the inside of the mould.

When the paint stripping is taking place the gel coat is the outer layer of the glass fibre panel to which we are normally required to strip. The gel coat is normally fairly hard and can be very brittle. Alternatively on some of the older cars the gel coat is of poor quality and has deteriorated over the years, which can make it comparatively soft. The plastic blast media pellets do not differentiate between the two adjoining surfaces and in the case of a hard surface, the gel coat over top of the bubble is usually very thin and tends to fracture, exposing a void during the blasting process. Conversely where the gel coat has deteriorated and become soft, it will breakdown and expose the void in a similar way.  In some severe cases the gel coat is very thin and will break down even on areas without any air entrapment, exposing the strands of fibre matting.

This situation is made even worse when multiple layers of paint have been applied to the car and especially when relatively hard finishes have been used. The concentration of the plastic blast media required to break down these more durable paint finishes results In more abrasion to the gel coat surface, especially in complex areas such as moulding lines, corners and similar features.

The final result after stripping may be a fairly smooth gel coat finish with a number of pinholes, and especially on older cars we would expect to see many tiny voids where the air bubbles have been broken. Some exposure of mat in more complex areas and areas where previous damage has been repaired, is common place and any gel coat cracks caused by impact damage will be visible after blasting.

The customer must be fully aware that the repairs necessary to the glass fibre surface may be extensive and expensive, not because our stripping process (or any other process for that matter) has damaged the body, but because that is often the way with older fibreglass bodies. In many cases the pinholes can be filled with stopper, flatted and sprayed with polyester filler or similar materials, with intermediate flatting between subsequent coats, to achieve a smooth uniform finish. Alternatively, some repairers believe that surfaces in this condition should be re‑matted with tissue mat and given further extensive repairs prior to producing a surface ready for painting.  Before embarking on a fibreglass restoration just be aware of the potential problems and pitfalls of stripping paint from glass fibre by this or any other method,and the alternatives for the repair and restoration of the glass fibre to an acceptable standard.

 

 

Preparing Your Car

Preparing car bodyshells for mounting on the body tilting frame.

To strip complete bodyshells, we put them onto a rollover frame by mounting the shell on a giant meccano kit, secured to the strength points of the body / shell / chassis, such as the bumper mounting points, rear spring mountings, front suspension or engine mountings etc.

This is a time consuming operation, from our point of view, because we cannot assume to attach anything to the shell, chassis or body by other than existing holes or fixings. What we need are a couple of bars sticking out at the front and back of the car, at bumper level. We have made mounting jigs for some cars but they are expensive and we cannot possibly hold mountings for all the cars we clean, and in any case there is very often not enough strength left in the general bodywork holes to support the weight of the shell. Some cars have dumb iron mounting points for the bumper just inside the front and rear panels of the body, like the Porsche 356 and the Mk II Jaguar for example, they are really useful, but sometimes even these have rot problems or stripped threads as a result of corrosion problems.

Therefore it greatly assists us, and saves customer's money, if, prior to bringing the shell to us, customers attach two metal bars that can support the shell's weight, to the front and the back of the shell, at bumper level. These bars need to stick out 8”-10" clear of the furthest point of the car so that we can bolt or weld our rolling frame attachment to them. These bars need to be quite robust as when the body is turned through 90 degrees or more, on the frame, the forces on the bars become quite different to those exerted if you were just lifting the car off the ground. The bars can be a piece of flat mild steel about 6 mm thick and 30-40mm wide, or angle iron of 30mm x 30mm and 4mm thick. ( Not many cars could accommodate the angle irons through the original holes in the front valance.) We can then weld or bolt these to our iron work.

The main reason why it is better done by you than by us, apart from saving you possibly £100 or so, is that if you are happy to weld the bars onto the bodyshell or chassis, you can make that decision, we can't. But we understand that not everyone has the facilities or ability to do this extra preparation, so we have to rely on the bolts and holes available to us. If you can leave the bolts in the obvious holes we might use to mount the bodyshell, then that is helpful too.

Removing Underseal

There is no easy way of removing the rubbery type of underseal, or sound deadening pads. These materials do not respond to blasting since blasting relies on a ‘chipping’ action to remove residues. The later schutz type of under body protection is designed to deflect stones etc. so not surprisingly it is difficult to remove by blasting. The fiddly bits can be blasted but the big areas are better scraped off with hot air guns and a scraper, or similar. For us to remove all the Schutz from, say, a Porsche 911 can add anything up to around £500. With these really good protective materials we do urge you to consider whether they really need to be removed as part of your restoration. If the material is basically sound and the metal clean underneath then why remove it, you will only need to re-apply it at the end of the restoration. Obviously, the areas where welding and other repairs are needed will have to be cleaned off, but by blasting over the material fairly vigorously the media will find weak areas and those can be dealt with. The remainder may well be perfectly sound, and you save some money.

The old type underseals generally are either dry and crispy or black and gooey. The dry underseal can usually be scraped fairly easily, the gooey stuff is slower and messy, but blasting the gooey underseal only tends to soften these materials making them even more resilient and the abrasive sticks in it, a soft gooey mess. Therefore a good deal of hand scraping needs to be done before we blast off the residue to finish. We will happily do it, but it is not really cost effective for our skilled operatives to do hand scraping, so we always encourage customers, where possible, to remove the bulk of underseal themselves. In monetary terms, if we do it, this process usually incurs around £200-£300 extra – (in the case of a particularly bad Mercedes, the cost of removing the underseal alone was nearer £800!!). After hand scraping (by whoever) we blast off the remainder to finish.

 

Aluminium

Aluminium is relatively soft hard abrasives will profile the surface leaving a key for subsequent coatings.   This applies to things like sweet moulds that are coated with PTFE (better known by the trade name Teflon used on your cooking pans) to stop them sticking to the mould.
 
Similarly, photo copier rollers can be refurbished by removing the old coating and applying the same type of material, but they are thin walled and great care is required to avoid damaging them.
 
One project we do periodically is to blast a small area of an aluminium wheel hub assembly to create a coarse profile so that the oil seal is retained snugly in its seating.  This requires a coarse abrasive to create a rough texture in the soft aluminium.
 
Hydraulic control valves can be made from engineering grades of Aluminium and our plastic media is one way of removing paint etc. from the exterior of an assembly for refurbishment, and generally, plastic media wont produce a profile. We can also remove most powder coating materials, but the tough ones can increase the time and therefore the cost significantly.
 
Aircraft component are usually made from hard aluminium and stripping aircraft landing gear is one of the many uses for plastic media dry stripping.

Heritage

We see lots of unusual and interesting things come in which we can clean and may well have ended up in the scrap mans yard or in the landfill tip.

A little door bell we saved from the rubble of a site cleaned up nicely and was presented back to the client and hangs within the dwelling.

Larger bells and old copper pots turn up too, old clock mechanisms, and things as big as the Cliveden clock, being renovated.

Some jobs are too big to bring here. The Wey and Arun Canal passes locally and there is keen interest in its reinstatement. Several new locks have been built and miles of canal made navigable. We blasted and repaired an old pump and a huge steel swing bridge which is now installed at Lowfold Farm, Wisborough Green.

The following list is just a sample of things we have cleaned:-

garden gates, garden furniture, garden statues, steam railway parts, cast iron radiators, cast iron fireplaces, garden urns, bronzes from the Stuyvesant collection, ironwork chandeliers, Spitfire Merlin engine, ancient ships cannons, antique furniture, spiral staircases, old water pumps

 

 

St Pancras - A Family Project - 121 Years On.

Our MD’s great, great Grandfather was Francis Wright, a leading industrialist between 1830 and 1873.

Living in Derbyshire, he had interests in mineral mining, coal, brick manufacturing, railways and manufacturing wrought iron structures.

In 1886 his company built St Pancras station in London, a 240 foot unsupported wrought iron span building, over 100 feet high, one of the largest spans in the world, using 9000 tons of wrought iron.


Timber form work supported the iron frame.                     The completed structure.


Francis Wright's brickwork company, the Butterley Company, also supplied the 60 million bricks for the station building.

 

Exterior of St Pancras

Although under threat of demolition in the 1960, in more recent years the station has been refurbished to become the terminus for the Eurostar trains travelling between the UK and Europe via the channel tunnel.


 

So we were delighted to be involved with the historic family building when asked to prepare stainless steel plates to be used as slip resistant covers over cable ducts in the platforms at St Pancras, as part of the refurbishment for Eurostar.   We blasted these plates with coarse blast media to ensure the surface was non-slip from every angle, even if wet. 

  
 

The station was re-opened in late 2007.  The pictures above show the plates at our works, their positions on the platforms and Karen testing them out on a recent trip on Eurostar to Paris!

 

Automotive

Paint removal and corrosion treatment of cars, motorbikes and aeroplanes.

Professional and amateur restorers from all over the UK bring us car bodies, panels and parts for removing paint and/or corrosion. Since we started the blasting side of our business in 1985 some interesting items have passed through our works. D-Type and XKSS Jaguars, Ferraris, Maseratis, Aston Martins and Lamborghinis are some of the more exotic classic cars we've helped to restore, but we also cater to more modest vehicles, MGB, Morris, Rover, Triumph, the list is endless. From Formula 1 to hot rods, from vintage to classic, from army quad bikes to bubble cars, from tractors to Aston Martins.  We treat cars made of steel, aluminium and even glass fibre and we apply the same methods when treating motorbikes and aeroplanes. 

So...............What is media blasting and bead blasting?

Like most industries there are generic terms and more specific technical terms to describe various processes.  So lets try to clarify what the terms mean.

There are, of course, many variables and special applications. This is not intended to be all encompassing but merely a layman’s guide to Blasting terminology.

You have heard the term Sand Blasting, which was invented over 100 years ago but really took off around 50 years ago, blasting with sand.  Sand does a great job and it was used for years, even though they knew as long ago as the late 40’s that sand had hazardous contents in the form of free silica. It is the tiny particles that are released when the sand breaks up when it hits something hard that are dangerous to your respiratory system. So Silica bearing sand was banned from use in any pressure vessel for blasting around 1980 and some manufacturers put big labels on their equipment advising it was illegal to use sand. Unfortunately that does not stop the ill informed or unscrupulous from still using sand and it is cheap, but at what cost to your, or their, health?

So, people commonly refer to Sand Blasting but it should really be referred to as Abrasive Blasting which covers a wide range of legal alternative materials available today.

Media Blasting is commonly used as a generic term for almost any blasting product, so is a bit vague, whereas Plastic Media Blasting is what it says, angular pieces of particular types of plastic that can be used for certain blasting applications.

Shot Blasting is also a generic term used by many people to describe blasting but can encompass almost any type of blasting. Shot Blasting is generally the term applied to the use of steel shot, tiny steel balls like shotgun pellets, that come in a whole range of sizes and are used for various purposes, too lengthy to deal with here.

Shot Blasting can also be referred to when really meaning Steel Grit Blasting, which instead of tiny steel balls it uses angular pieces of steel similar to many of the other abrasive product with angular particles that are sharp and aggressive.  This is generally used for cleaning industrial work and heavy steel components.  Steel grit comes in a range of sizes but tends to be on the larger side for most industrial applications and just what you do not want on you classic body shell.  We have seen some shells that have been blasted in this way, it is too agressive and they were ruined with distorted panels everywhere.

Bead Blasting is one we hear all the time, used again as a generic term to describe almost any blasting process. Bead Blasting is usually associated with Glass Bead Blasting, tiny glass balls  in a whole range of sizes and used generally for cleaning and finishing aluminium castings, for example, engine casings, plus stainless steel items, and can also be used to finish steel items if there is a special requirement.

Now lets look at the processes in more detail, and how they work.

Glass Bead Blasting

Bead blasting is generally the term used to describe the cleaning process whereby spheres of glass are propelledat the surface need to be cleaned in a fast moving stream of air. The glass bead are usually round and because they have no sharp edges they clean by virtue of the kinetic energy resulting from their mass and velocity. It is like millions of tiny hammer blows. The glass bead is comparitivley hard to other blast media, and it needs to be because it is effectively hammering the surface of the item being cleaned. This hammering or 'peening' action moves the surface of the metal around, at a microscopic level, and fills the tiny fissures in the surface of the metal that you can see through a microscope (they exist even on highly polished surfaces). By filling in these microscopic voids you reduce the ability of foreign corrosive elements and dirt from getting into the surface of the metal. Not only will this help reduce deterioration of the surface over time but it is also used to create a surface that is more hygenic in certain applications, such as the food preparation industry and medical equipment. 

The surface you want to finish with bead blasting will almost certainly benefit from cleaning by other methods first, such as a fine abbrasive blasting, to remove as many contaminants as possible, but it will depend on the item and the finish required. If you do not pre-cleanan already corroded item like an alloy wheel, then the peening action of the glass bead will trap the corrosive meterial in the surface of the aluminium leading to early deteriation of the metal because of the contaminant fighting to get out.

Glass bead blasting normallty leave a satin finish on the surface you have treated, if you use glass bead mixed with water and air in a pressurized system it is called vapour blasting and give more of a sheen finish, particularly on alloy parts. However, this is not the same as a polished finish which is normally achieved by a buffing process with the use of polishing compounds.

Beware, the 'peening' that the metals under go during the glass bead blasting process is not always applicable on certain items such as thin sheet metal. Due the hammering effect described above and remoulding which occurs, this can result in warping and distortion, that can be irreversable . 

Plastic Media dry stripping

Plastic media dry stripping is exactly what it says; it uses millions of tiny particles of angular graded plastic propelled at the surface to be paint stripped in a stream of fast moving compressed air. The paint is removed by the chipping and scratching action of the sharp edged pieces of plastic.

The sharp angular particles of plastic are relatively soft and light-weight. It is propelled at much lower pressure than most other blasting processes because the plastic deforms and breaks down very quickly if it hits the surface too hard. As the plastic media is some 20+ times more expensive than normal blasting abrasive there are very good commercial reasons for us to use the plastic media at low pressure and recover it for re-use, but its unique properties make it ideal for this type of cleaning.

On steel panels the plastic does not mark the surface of the metal and so allows the removal of the paint, filler, glue and some of the old types of underseal if they are dry and friable, from thin steel panels (and some other base materials too). There is no distortion of the steel because there is no heat generated, the plastic media is not hard enough to break the surface of the steel.

You can then see everything uncovered, even how the panel was last prepared, all the grinding marks and abrasive rubbing down marks can be seen, even phosphate dipping used during manufacturing can be seen on the car bodies as a tide line after plastic media paint stripping. Where lead loading has been used on the panel joints by the manufacturer, the plastic media is hard enough to disturb the surface and create a slightly  roughened profile in the surface of the lead, but it does not remove the lead.  A quick sand over with a dual action sander reduces the profile in seconds.

Plastic media will not remove body seam sealer or the modern underseals economically - they are too resilient and designed to resist abrasion. Apart from damaged or poorly adhered areas, which it will identify, why would you want to remove the factory seam sealer? (The exception being cars for racing which have to be seam welded for strength). Some of the modern paints have plasticising additives, which make them very tough to remove, but there is no safer way of removing paint from panels.

Finer Plastic Media and its uses

Plastic media can be used on aluminium panels and fibreglass too. More operator skill is required and smaller grades of plastic media and lower pressure are required as these surfaces can be damaged because they are softer than steel. Aluminium panels will exhibit a profile on the surface because the plastic media is hard enough to disturb the surface of the aluminium, but only in microscopic terms. To minimise the risk of distortion and profiling a fine grade of plastic media with small particle sizes is used.

Thermal Image of plastic media blasting

 

The first picture above, is a thermal imaging camera recording plastic media blasting, while the second below is of a grit blasting process. What it shows is the amount of heat generated by the blasting processes.  The brighter and more extensive the orange/white area, the greater the heat generated by the friction created by the cleaning process on the metal.

Corrosion Removal

Once all the paint, filler and underseal, glue, sound deadening, oil, grease and all the other problem materials have been removed using the plastic media blasting process, the corrosion should be visible and can be dealt with.

To remove the surface corrosion an abrasive that is hard enough to scour the surface clean must be used. It needs to be sharp and angular to cut into the corrosion on the surface of the metal but fine enough to prevent the hammering or peening action that has the potential to damage the panels. This is where a skilled operator is essential to minimise the risk of distortion.

Because most of the work has already been done using the plastic media, the risk of overworking the surface with the hard abrasive is greatly reduced. There is less need to dwell in one place with the abrasive blast stream, it is this dwell that generates a tiny amount of heat and the stressing action that can cause distortion to panels. The finer the abrasive the less kinetic energy there is in the particle, to dissipate when it hits the surface. This makes removal of the surface corrosion slower but leaves a very fine profile on the surface of the steel panel, which is a good key for the paint and any filler required.

There are blasting companies around who blast car bodies and panels with hard abrasives and have to chase the 'live edge' to remove the paint and filler etc. and this is when there is considerable risk of damage. Anything rubbery in nature requires prolonged blasting and the risk of peening and heating the surface is very high, the damage irreversible. There are operators who can do it this way but they are few and far between.

Protection after corrosion removal - phosphate coating

When all the paint etc. and corrosion has been removed the item is cleaned with compressed air to remove the residues of the cleaning media. It takes large volumes of air to blow out the box sections and it is sometimes difficult to do so. The steel surface is grey in colour and  'technically clean'.   In layman’s terms that is about as clean as you can get. However, steel panels in this condition are very susceptible to surface corrosion from moisture in the atmosphere and even the sweat on your hands. It is essential the surface is protected as soon as possible but we do not think priming the surface with paint is the best solution. Primers are not waterproof in most cases for one thing and any paint should be removed locally if welding repairs are to be carried out. In addition, the primer hides the surface so you cannot see the metal to see if it is clean and sound.

We spray the body / panels / parts with a phosphate coating . It is a clear product but leaves a slight green tinge in some areas as it works into the metal. You can still see the metal surfaces - and see if we did our job properly because nothing is hidden. A coat of primer can hide a multitude of problems, and poor worlmanship. It is an advanced coating which etches into the metal drawing zinc into the surface. It also has corrosion conversion properties which help to stabilise the invisible corrosive salts that are ever present in the metal where corrosion was previously visible even though the surface is technically clean. You can weld through the treatment without removing it because it isn’t a paint. The phosphate is a chemical preparation that passivates the surface of the metal, killing corrosive salts and providing a chemical key on to which the paint molecules can lock.  This, combined with the profile (roughness) of the surface created by the final very fine abrasive cleaning process used, provide a mechanical key that further aids paint adhesion.

The phosphate treatment can be left on the surface and over-coated by any kind of paint. (In the 20 years we have been importing the product no one has reported a paint compatibility problem.) Prior to painting, the surface should be rubbed over with a Scotch-bright pad just to remove any dust or loose particles, blown off and/or solvent wiped prior to painting as you would normally do for good paint-shop procedure.

We try to handle panels with gloves after phosphating because your sweat has lots of acidic content and when you put a sweaty hand on a panel it will leave a perfect hand print in about 3 weeks, even after phosphating, and much quicker on an unprotected panel.

The phosphate coating is not intended to be exposed to direct contact with rain etc. but will protect the metal quite well for months in a reasonable workshop. A customer recently reported that a car body we cleaned, which had to be shelved for 4 years, was rolled out again and found to be in remarkably good condition, protected only by our phosphate treatment. Another brought some doors back after 12 years storage, protected only by the phosphate coating. They were not perfect, but still in remarkably good condition and all that was needed was a light blast off and re-phosphating.

If the shell does get wet on the trip home, it will look blotchy with white marks on the panels.  Put it in the paint oven and dry it off as soon as possible.   If you don’t have an oven or a heated garage, use any form of forced heat (electric is better than gas or oil because they both produce a lot of water vapour that you don’t want.). Heat up the garage, make a tent over the car to enclose the heat if need be, and put your heater in or under the shell; even an arc lamp produces a lot of useful heat. (If the wife is out, open the French doors and put it in the living room with the central heating turned up, but there is likely to be more heat than you want when she comes home and catches you!)  When it dries off it should not have deteriorated too much, but it doesn’t look nice.

So there it is.  Over the last 20 years we have cleaned hundreds of cars – from bubble cars and Morris Minors to Maseratis and Ferraris and everything else between – for owners and restorers, from the one man band to the Aston Martin Heritage Centre.  And they keep coming back, so we must be doing something right!

Cleaning Buildings

Our mobile blast cleaning team covers the South East of England, across Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire.  On occasion we do travel outside these areas as far as Wiltshire, Kent and the outskirts of London.  We have cleaned hundreds of old beamed cottages, barns, shops, factories, industrial buildings, properties of all ages and type over the years. In more recent years we have worked closely with local builders and developers cleaning popular new oak structures.  Much of our work comes through personal recommendations or from the local Historic Society, builders and architects for whom we work regularly. They know they can trust us to preserve important features and not damage structures. We are recognized by the Listed Buildings Officer at Chichester District Council and are on the approved contractors list for the Listed Buildings Officer at Waverly District Council, our two most local Authorities. Our ever growing portfolio of work includes many listed buildings, some of them Grade One listing, and National Trust properties.

For more information on blast cleaning buildings and to view examples of our work click on any of the following:

Here is a list of just some of the distinguished buildings where we have worked -

Amberley Castle (Grade I), Ashwood Place (Grade II), Binfield Manor (for the Sultan of Brunei), Burningfold Manor, Burton House, Burton Park, Busbridge Hall, Chawton House, Chesswood House, Chesworth House, Dorchester Hotel, Guildford Castle (Grade I), Coates Castle, Cowdray House, Dial Post House, Diddling Manor, Exfold Manor, Garton House, Great Eastern Hotel, Ham House (Grade I), Hampton Court (Grade I), Haslemere Museum, London Playboy Club, Mary Rose Trust, National Gallery (Grade I), Regents Park, Snowdenham Hall, Uppark House (Grade I), Willinghurst House (Grade I)  

Modern sandblasting wood techniques are used for door stripping, paint removal and stain removal to clean old beams, staircases and panels - the images above just show a small selection of the work we have done.

Industrial

We regularly clean machinery both onsite and in our works for local manufacturing companies as part of their essential maintenance programmes to ensure continuity of production. Component parts made from steel, aluminium, even rubber, benefit from our cleaning processes.   Pumps, fans, drums, pipework, engines, etc. are just a few examples of the industrial items we deal with. 

Metal finishes available include:
We have the facility for hot metal flame spraying - an alternative method of corrosion treatment.  This is ideal for classic car chassis, parts & exhausts, garden furniture, gates & railings, architectural & ornamental items.   The metal finishes we use are Zinc, Aluminium, Copper, Bronze or Stainless Steel. The surface texture is rough to the touch like sandpaper but it can be polished to a mirror finish with care; if the polishing generates heat the sprayed metal may expand and break the adhesion with the parent metal because the application is normally only a few fractions of a millimetre thick.

 

Preservation

We see lots of unusual and interesting little things come in which we can clean and may well have ended up in the scrap mans yard or in the landfill tip.
A little door bell we saved from the rubble of a site cleaned up nicely and was presented back to the client and hangs within the dwelling.


Larger bells and old copper pots turn up too, old clock mechanisms, and things as big as the Cliveden clock, being renovated.


Some jobs are too big to bring here. The Wey and Arun Canal passes locally and there is keen interest in its reinstatement. Several new locks have been built and miles of canal made navigable. We blasted and repaired an old pump and a huge steel swing bridge which is now installed at Lowfold Farm, Wisborough Green.

The buttons above under Preservation will take you to your area of interest.
