Shot Blasting

Shot blasting reveals any risk of corrosion and stops problems like broken weld joints. Our shot blasting services ensure the targeted item is left perfectly clean right down to the bare white metal, presenting the best possible surface to paint or powder on.

We provide a selection of professional methods that are available for all. Shot blasting is used on items with specifications up to 6m x 2m x 1.5m. Blasting media includes chilled iron grit, steel shot, glass bead and aluminium oxide. We believe that good preparation is paramount to a long lasting finish.

Chilled Iron Grit

Blasting with chilled iron grit is ideal for removing existing coatings and burning off residue as well as providing a template for coating. Chilled iron grit can also clean welds and remove sand and runners from castings as well as the etching of structural steel and components prior to coating.

Chilled iron grit is available in our hand cabinets for surface treatment to SA 2.5 standards.

Steel Shot

Steel shot is ideal for both cleaning and peening. Shot peening is available in our hand cabinets.

Glass Bead

Glass bead blasting is available in a dedicated hand cabinet and is ideal for peening, texturing or the removal of surface blemishes. Glass bead poses no risk of corrosion or magnetisation and does not alter the surface dimensions of the component being cleaned.
