Shot Blasting

Shot blasting is the perfect preparation process for recoating corroded metal surfaces.

Shot Blasting is the process of firing tiny abrasive particles at a surface to etch away rust, old paint and contaminants. High powered air is used to propel the particles and different types of media can be used to achieve a different finish and prevent actual damage to the surface.

Shot Blasting

We shot blast your components before the powder coating process not only to remove any old paint and surface rust but also to prepare the surface by giving it a key, this increases the adhesion of the powder coating giving a finish that is bonded to the metal rather than simply siting on the surface.

Our purpose built shot blasting facilities allow us to deal with even the largest gate and railing restoration projects and our knowledge of materials gives us an edge when it comes to achieving the perfect finish.

The Shot Blasting process involves:-

  • Removal of any parts that cannot be shot blasted.
  • De greasing and inspection of the parts to be blasted.
  • Shot blasting the items individually with the correct media.
  • A final inspection of all welds and joints to assess any repairs needed.

If after shot blasting we find your product needs to be repaired it is handed over to one of our team of highly skilled, qualified welders who will repair the components as necessary and to the highest standards.

After the shot blasting process we use a high build zinc rich primer to help prevent corrosion and prepare the surface for powder coating.

High purity zinc particles are sprayed onto the surface with very high adhesion properties. Zinc Rich Primer is a powder coating primer that is designed to give enhanced corrosion protection of mild steel. Zinc Rich Primer is specially formulated to be over coated with a Polyester powder topcoat.
