Shotblasting is an integral part of our work. We have a good sized cabinet with pressure fed media. We use a fine grade of high quality steel.
Shotblasting thoroughly cleans the metal prior to treatment. It removes corrosion, laser cut scale, paint and dirt and de-greases.
It also provides an excellent keyed surface for adherence of coating. With some exceptions, everything we coat is blasted first.
Bead blasting uses tiny beads of glass to clean components. We use it primarily for non-ferrous castings, such as cast aluminium intake manifolds, an example is shown.
