|Shot blasting to remove rust and peeling paint|
from the top of a fuel storage tank. Not pictured
is the attached dust collector.
By varying the blasting media, such as changing the size, shape, type or velocity, shot blasting can be used to either smooth a rough surface OR to roughen a smooth surface.
Used on steel surfaces, shot blasting removes rust, old paint, coatings, and can smooth or roughen the surface as needed.
By roughening a surface, say a concrete floor, shot blasting gives the concrete more bonding surface for coatings or overlays. At the same time, it can be used to remove dirt, oil, old coatings, and old marking stripes.

shot blasting machine. The media being
used is 390 shot.
Because the usable blasting media is recycled, very little abrasive material is lost.
For surface preparation work for new coatings, shot blasting is an indispensable tool for us.
