Shot blasting is the perfect preparatory operation for achieving the best surface adhesion for paint. Abrasive particles are fired under total visual control of your component in our blast room. The surface is gently etched, removing surface contaminants such as old paint, and rust or mill scale.
Different types of blast media can be used for different materials, enabling us to blast mild steel, stainless steel and wood.
