Sandblasting is a process that uses high-pressure air to blast abrasive particles at a surface to remove contaminants or to prepare the surface for another treatment, which gives each sheet a soft appearance that will diffuse light in a dazzling way.
Sand-blasted sheets look best when paired with a PVD color coating, and many clients choose gold, champagne, black, grey, or rose gold. Usually, a mirror finish is applied prior to sandblasting to give the sheets a more premium look. The assortment of available colors allows people to add beautiful sand-blasted steel to any room or building.
It is important to note that sandblasted stainless steel sheet is not suitable for use in food preparation areas due to the risk of contamination from the abrasive particles.
There are many applications for sandblasted stainless steel sheets. Some of the most popular applications include:
Stainless steel is available in a variety of thicknesses and gauges, so it is important to select the right one for your project.
Here are a few tips to help you choose the right thickness and gauge for your project:
In general, if the stainless steel sheets you need are for indoor and outdoor use, the ideal thickness range is 0.5mm to 2.0mm. If the thickness is less than 0.5mm, it’s easy for laborers to cause surface issues as they move and lift throughout the manufacturing process. If the thickness is more than 2.0mm, it will be difficult to use in practical applications. In addition, the color sheets serve primarily a decorative purpose, so there is no need to use a large thickness; this may also help you save money.
When selecting a stainless steel sheet design, be sure to consider the following factors:
The purpose of the sheet, for decoration or fabrication?
The environment it will be used, outdoor or indoor?
How it will be handled, welding, cutting, or bending?
The type of finish desired, glossy, dull, colored, or patterned?
There are many different options available, so take your time to find the perfect one.
