What is shot blasting?

Shot blasting is a surface preparation technique that involves propelling abrasive materials, such as steel shot or grit, at high velocities onto a surface.

The impact of the abrasive media removes contaminants, rust, scale, coatings, and other imperfections, leaving the surface clean, textured, and ready for further treatment or coating.

What surfaces can be shot blasted?

Shot blasting is suitable for a wide range of surfaces, including concrete, steel, metal, stone, and more.

It is commonly used in industrial settings, warehouses, car showrooms, manufacturing facilities, and historical restoration projects.

What are the benefits of shot blasting?

Shot blasting offers numerous benefits, including:

Is shot blasting suitable for delicate surfaces?

Shot blasting can be adjusted to suit different surface materials and delicacy.

By using appropriate abrasive media, adjusting the blasting intensity, or employing alternative surface preparation methods, shot blasting can be tailored to meet the requirements of delicate surfaces without causing damage.
