Shot Blasting

Abrasive blasting is the operation of cleaning or preparing a surface by forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material against it. Usually explained as the use of a material against another material to make it smoother, remove surface contaminants or to roughen a surface. It is also the appropriate term for what is known as glass bead blasting or shot blasting.

Just about all items that come into our facility such as motorcycle & car parts are shot/ bead blasted, of course it all depends on the base material before the selection is made.

Why does it need shot blasting?

In short it removes all contaminants such as rust, old paint etc and gives a good canvas and key to start the powder or painting process on and at the same time it normally reveals any problems such as corrosion weakness or broken weld joints.

Good preparation is paramount to a good long lasting finish.
