Watch this video to understand the reason for industrial sandblasting. Are you physically fit and strong? Do you like working with your hands? Are you a stickler for technical and detailed work? Do you enjoy operating high-power machines? If your answer to these questions is in the affirmative, industrial sandblasting may be the perfect career for you.
Sandblasting uses high-power tools to clean, smoothen and shape different materials, including rocks, glass, and metal.
The cleaning, smoothening, and shaping occur by blasting fine abrasive materials and air from the high-power tools at an extremely high speed.
The main difference between industrial and commercial sandblasting is location. Commercial sandblasters specialize in building exteriors, while industrial sandblasters work in factories, road construction, and oil fields.
You can start a career in industrial sandblasting without a lot of effort. You need a high school certificate, workplace hazard training (WHMIS), and construction safety training (CSTS) to gain entry. On-the-job training is hugely vital for sandblasters because there is no technical school that one can enroll in to learn sandblasting as a career.
