Do you have an old tractor you want to restore, but just do not know a simple way to strip the years of paint, grime and weathering from your pet project? D & H Equipment in Blanco now offers sandblasting services for local customers. While the folks at D & H have used sandblasting for quite a while to prepare for painting the massive asphalt rubber blending equipment they manufacturer, they are now ready to provide this service to the public.
Sandblasting has a surprising number of uses and applications. By forcing air and solid particles across a surface at high speeds, a smooth, even finish can be obtained. Often sandblasting is preferable to sanding, scraping or chemical stripping to remove rust, paint, dirt or weathering from surfaces. A variety of items can enjoy a new life after an abrasive “facelift.” Metal parts as well as brick, stone, glass, ceramics and even wood may be renewed with a good sand scrubbing. Not only can this method of cleaning be quicker and less expensive, sandblasting can also preserve details that could be destroyed using other methods.
While the asphalt blenders and tanks they build are in use around the world, D & H Equipment is pleased to offer local services for the first time since beginning operations seven years ago. One of Blanco’s best kept, less hidden little secrets, D & H has twice expanded beyond the historic old livestock auction barn at 1564 south Loop 163, just south of the veterinary clinic.
