, a commercial painting and sandblasting contractor in the Greater Boston and New England area
, has offered blasting services to our customers
for over 50 years. Whether the project involves
rust removal from steel beams, cleaning
bricks in an old mill building prior to its conversion to an office use or
restaurant space, efflorescence, graffiti and water stain removal, or any

Originally and colloquially called Sandblasting
, the name
has changed because sand is no longer allowed.
As sand is made up of silica, the end product of sand blasting is a very
fine silica cloud that in some cases causes silicosis in humans. Today a wide range of application specific abrasives
are used. They range from high pressure
water vapor to walnut shells, to glass beads to the tried and true bituminous
coal slag. Even Dry Ice and ground up
sponges can be used to clean and polish metals without damaging substrate.
Today, APC Services offers many services under the label “painting
contractors of Boston”
; we apply paints, coatings, and architectural finishes to
everything from offices to power plants to parking garages.
