Shot blasting

The best process for removing layers or coatings

Before any type of metal is galvanized, it needs to be cleaned of rust and uneven particles. One of the most effective ways to do this is with shot blasting.

The process involves firing a high-pressure spray of abrasive steel materials onto a rough surface to create the smooth surface. With both an automatic loading and shot reclaim system, the process is an incredibly efficient and fast way to remove surface contaminants without chemically altering a fabrication.

Shot blasting also prepares the metal for coating, making the process easier and improving the quality of the end result.
