Blast Cleaning...

Steel shot blasting is the most widely used process for cleaning, stripping and improving a metal surface. The grade or size of steel shot will determine the ultimate finish achieved on the surface of the metal. The rough texture of the chilled iron steel shots we use allows for paint to adhere to the surface more easily.

Shot blasting is the perfect preparatory
operation for achieving the best surface
adhesion for your paint. Abrasive particles
are fired under total visual control of your
component in our blast chamber. The surface
is gently etched, removing surface
contaminants such as old paint, and rust
or mill scale.

For most applications, we use a chilled iron
grit, which gives a medium angular profile of
55-75 microns and removes oxides, rust and
scale from steel and castings.

We can blast to –

◦SA2 (good commercial blast)
◦SA2.5 (near white metal, thorough blast clean)
◦SA3 (white metal)
