Most often, shot blasting is a process used to clean and prepare a surface for painting, as this leaves a completely polished and profiled item. However, shot blasting is also useful for a number of reasons and is widely applicable to any industry that works with metal on a day to day basis, such as construction, aerospace and automotive enterprises, as well as having a range of domestic uses.

Birkenhead Powder Coatings premier process

Shot blasting is done by using compressed air pressure to force blast media through a jet nozzle with both speed and accuracy. There is a range of blasting media, and the right option usually depends on the item that needs cleaning. Once we establish the best method to proceed with, we then blast the item with a stream of abrasive particles that thoroughly cleans the object in a quick and timely manner.

We can accommodate any items within the dimensions 6m x 2m x 1.5m into our process, covering a vast degree of products from all backgrounds and specifications. Many of our customers find that the results they get from our shot blasting process in Merseyside have no comparison, removing scale, oxides and other surface contaminants, revealing any risk of corrosion, and stopping issues like broken weld joints from developing. Indeed, shot blasting is recognised by many industries as the best means of creating a viable surface for painting and powdering as well as a whole host of other benefits.
