Renew metal pieces like old railings or rusted cart parts. Area 51 is Wilmington’s premiere Media Blasting company. Media blasting is an abrasive blasting process. Much like sandblasting, media blasting strips old paint, rust, and other substances from a metal surface, leaving it clean and prepped for a powder coating or other finish. Media blasting is a great way to restore and renew metal pieces such as old railings or rusted car parts.
At Area 51 we use media blasting as our primary process to prep metal surfaces for powder coating. This process leaves a light etching to the metal, making it ideal for coatings to adhere to the surface.
You may choose to use media blasting to clean a piece of metal without adding a finish. Our media blasting room is 14’w x 22’l x 10’h. We’ll gladly clean up anything that can fit into that space. Can’t bring your metal pieces to us? No problem. We’ll come to you and handle the tear-down and transportation, then re-install your piece when it’s finished.
