BioBlast Media Blasting

This week’s Featured Business:BioBlast Logo 2014-1026

BioBlast is a family-owned business that was started in September 2006.  As long time residents of Prairie City it made sense for us to choose to build our business locally.  We like the fact that our customers come from all over the state to bring their projects here to Prairie City to be blasted.


BioBlast is a mobile media blasting company that services all of Iowa.

We offer a variety of media blasting materials including:
– Recycled Glass is a great product for removing rust and other difficult to remove coatings. Glass is a safer and healthier alternative to sand blasting.

– Walnut Shell works great on wood and other delicate items that will normally be destroyed by sand blasting.

– Soda blasting is much better than sand blasting because it won’t warp open sheet metal and will not damage glass or chrome.
Soda Blasting will leave the surface of your project clean and looking factory fresh and ready for paint prep!

Give us a call , we’ll  talk about your project and give you an estimate.
