Industrial Shot Blasting – removing unwanted rust and scale from surfaces

Industrial shot blasting is a process that involves spraying steel shot at a high velocity onto the surface of an object.

The blast cleaning is often used to remove rust or some kind of scale that has taken root on a surface and is very difficult to get off; it is a great preparation method to then move on to a further pre-treatment, powder, paint or e-coat finish.

And when you have a clean surface you can do the re-coating using powder coating, metal spraying, or some type of metal coating finish. To prepare your surface for powder or paint adhesion, you need to clean the surface thoroughly.


Preparation For Coating


The shot blast helps to ensure you have the necessary protection while it also enhances the life of the finishing. Shot blasting is an effective and fast way to prepare any solid surface for re-coating. It’s also worth noting that the shot used as part of our shot blasting services can strip all previous paint coating or protection, no matter how old or engrained.  

After we remove all the old coating, the surface is then ready to be recoated with a new finish such as metal spraying, E-Coating, paint spraying, or powder coating. Our quality-assured equipment is able to accommodate most sizes of up to 7m x 5m.
