Shot Blasting

Shotblasting blasting is an effective surface preparation technique that involves using a high-pressure stream of abrasive materials to clean and roughen surfaces before applying coating systems. It is most commonly used on steel marked by mill-scaled and rusted surfaces. 

The scale of abrasion can be completed to a variety of levels, but the most common is SA2.5. 

High Pressure Jetting

High-pressure jetting is a powerful surface preparation technique that uses a high-pressure stream of water to clean and prepare surfaces.

High-pressure jetting is typically used to remove salts, fouling, loose paint and other contaminants.

Surface Cleaning

urface cleaning in surface preparation refers to the process of removing all contaminants, such as dirt, grease, oil, rust, and other debris from a surface.

Surface cleaning is essential because any foreign material on the surface can interfere with the adhesion of the coating, reducing the effectiveness of the treatment and compromising the quality and durability of the final product.

Vacuum Removal Systems

The vacuum removal process involves using a specialized vacuum system to suction away loose particles, such as dust, grit, or water, from the surface of the material.
