Shot Blasting – What is it?
Shot blasting is a process that is undertaken in order to prepare a surface before it has any treatment or finishes applied to it. Using specific shot blasting equipment the surface is blasted with a controlled stream of abrasive shot material at a very high velocity. Shot blasting is an ideal pre-treatment to blast away scale or rust. Our own industrial shot blasting material also has the ability to remove previous paint or powder from the surface. Once the process has taken place, the surface will be clean and ready for paint or powder adhesion.
