    Anybody knows how much is a boast sandblasting. Ontario offers it for a much cheaper price say my friends in San Diego. Is this true?

    3000 euros to sweep...light sandblast.... the antifouling paint off the bottom a 25 meter hull. Usally take two days to blast the bottom and one additional day to blast the details and clean up.

    how long is a piece of string
    A 3/8 inch venturi nozzle will blast mill scale steel at rate of 48 sq ft every 12 minutes at 100psI ASSUMING charge rate of 100 and hour plus sand, well there ya go, this is on the outside
    If you have a new hull and want to blast unprimed on inside you could x by 4
    How do I know this, cos I used build in steel with our own 300cfm compressor. Before I wised up and changed metals:)

    Commodity prices change in different areas due to "supply and demand" and local environmental issues.

    The way to find out the cost of sandblasting is to get someone to supply a quote.

    It makes little difference how much it is going to cost elsewhere unless you are willing to pay a lot for freight.
