Before you go to town blasting paint or rust off surfaces around your property, it’s important to understand that there is a wide range of abrasive blasting options available to you. Media blasting is often mistaken for sandblasting, but sand is just one type of highly abrasive material used for such purposes, and it’s not right for every surface. It could, for example, cause serious damage to softer materials like wood or aluminum.
In such cases, you’ll want to opt for a gentler approach, and this is where Lightning Mobile Services can help. Our expert team can recommend just the right abrasive blasting material for your delicate surfaces, including walnut shell blasting, which is suitable for softer surfaces and will help to address any environmental concerns you may have associated with media blasting.
Walnut shell blasting relies on a fine grit made from crushed walnut shells, which are soft, but still abrasive enough to treat issues like:

Walnut shell blasting is the preferred media for soft metals like aluminum, sheet metal, and brass because it removes build-up without causing surface damage that could ultimately lead to rust. With particulates that are lightweight and mildly abrasive, our trained professionals can strip away layers of coating on the surface of metal without causing any damage to the material underneath.
We can even remove top coats while leaving undercoating intact. This can save you time and money if you plan to repaint the surface. Walnut shell blasting also works great on wood, plastic, fiberglass, composite materials, and more.
Even better, walnut shell blasting offers a safe and effective alternative to potentially harmful options like chemical stripping. This environmentally friendly product is biodegradable and reclaimable, making it among the greenest products you can use for abrasive blasting purposes.
This means your operations can continue even as the talented team from Lightning Mobile Services completes your media blasting project. In addition to sending trained professionals and equipment to your facility to address larger surfaces, we’re happy to treat smaller items at our facility for your convenience.
You might worry that walnut shells simply aren’t robust enough to remove grease, paint, or rust from surfaces, but you’ll be surprised by how effective this media blasting material can be, especially for precision work like removing a peeling top coat while leaving undercoating like a primer intact. When you need a delicate approach that offers optimal control, walnut shell blasting performed by qualified professionals is the solution.
