Surface Blasting

steel blasting­­­

Steel Shot and Steel Grit blasting are processes where abrasive particles are pneumatically or centrifugally accelerated and forcefully directed against a surface. These high speed abrasive particles remove contaminants from the material’s surface and condition the surface for subsequent finishing.

Typical shot and grit blasting applications include:

  • Roughening surfaces in preparation for thermal spraying, painting, bonding or other coating operations
  • Removing rust, scale, sand, or paint
  • Removing burrs
  • Providing a matte surface finish
  • Removing flash from molded components
  • Cosmetic surface enhancement or etching
