SURFACE PREPARATION

Steel Shot/Grit Blasting

Steel Shot and Grit blasting primarily used for preparing steel for the application of protective coatings. 

Garnet Blasting (also known as Sand Blasting)

Commonly known as Sandblasting, Garnet is now used in place of Silica, due to health and safety risks associated with Silica. Garnet Blasting is primarily used for preparing steel for the application of protective coatings but is also used when non-metallic media is required, for example, aluminium blasting. 

Glass Bead Blasting
Glass Bead Blasting is a specialised media used for blasting aluminium and stainless steel, depending on the application required.

Soda Blasting

Soda Blasting is used when a surface needs to be cleaned without creating a profile or a minimal profile is required. Essentially, it is used as a cleaner.

Ultra-High Pressure Water Blasting

Ultra-High Pressure Water Blasting provides a powerful, fast and economical solution for your blasting projects. With pressures from 20,000 to 40,00 (PSI), Ultra High-Pressure Water Blasting quickly erode any type of tough surface build-up using only water, with no abrasives, chemicals, solvents or caustics - so, it’s safe for the environment.
