Shot Blasting

The scale, capacity and locality of our facilities ensure we provide a cost effective and efficient shot blasting service. Shot blasting is used to prime and clean surfaces, removing rust, scale or old coatings to expose clean bare metal ready for subsequent treatment. It also provides an effective method of preparing a surface with a roughened profile which promotes the adhesion of the specialist coatings we offer. We are equipped to shot blast using a variety of media including; metal shot or ball, aluminium oxide, silicon granules and glass. These are specified to offer a wide range of surface conditions which optimize the performance of the finished deposit. For larger components and assemblies it can offer substantial speed and cost savings over other conventional cleaning methods.

Key Properties of Shot Blasting

  • Surface Cleaning – De-rusting / De-scale
  • Surface Preparation – Prior to coating
