Sandblasting galvanized steel


i need some information about sandblasting galvanized steel.

does in fact the sandblasting remove the galvanized finish and if so what is another option for treating the steal afterwards. I have had 2 people ask me this in recent weeks

and I could not answer 1 of them but the second was right up my alley as it was pertaining to car parts and not aviation. it's more the aviation that I'm interested in.

Blasting with most medias will remove galvanizing. Some medias, such as plastic or corn starch may not remove the galvanize coating, but would in fact clean the galvanized metal surfaces.

I wish to have the rusted aged appearance to correcated roof metal for a project. Is there a environmentaly friendly way to remove the galvanized surface that isn't too costly?
