Media Guide?

2947 Views 12 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  BigWave
I know, another newb question. Is there any type of "guide" available anywhere online or elsewhere that gives a pretty good suggested media for different applications?
My blasting service is designed for pool waterline tile/stone applications. That can be ceramic glazed tile, glass tile, quartzite, slate, etc. Most out here are using #10 glass beads for the glazed tile.

I'm hoping that I can diversify at some point and do different surfaces to keep busy. Graffiti removal from block walls/bldgs., fountain and waterfall calcium removal off of natural stone, etc.

Just curious if anything is out there as far as a guide? Thanks all for the input!

The online "guide" is a great idea though. It seems to me this forum has the documented projects, media application and expertise needed to create such a document. It would be great if we could put together a panel of the most experienced blasters here to contribute information to creating such a document. We have the people, experience, and information here. Would be nice to put a spreadsheet together as a kind of "rule of thumb" document. Obviously, ever job is different with it's own set of dynamics. Having said that, a general guide would be a great starting point. Especially so for newbies like myself. Anyone that's greatly experienced care to participate?

Thanks for the feedback Betterblast. It's actually very helpful. Great job on the pool BigWave! What did you end up using? How long did it take?
