Surface preparation

Surface preparation is crucial for achieving optimal results when working with metals, including aluminium, stainless steel, and various other alloys. At our facility, we offer a comprehensive range of abrasive blasting services tailored to meet the specific requirements of each job.

Our blasting grades are categorized as follows:

  1. Light Blast Cleaning: Suitable for surface preparation where a light cleaning is required.
  2. Sa 2 – Thorough Blast Cleaning: Provides a thorough cleaning, removing contaminants and preparing the surface for further treatment.
  3. Sa 2½ – Very Thorough Blast Cleaning: Offers an even deeper cleaning, ensuring the surface is meticulously prepared for subsequent processes.
  4. Sa 3 – Blast Cleaning to Visually Clean Steel: Achieves a visually clean surface, free from any visible residues or imperfections.

We have access to a wide range of abrasives, both non-metallic (such as metal slags, aluminium oxide) and metallic (including steel shot or grit), allowing us to tailor our approach to the specific needs of each project. Additionally, the size of the abrasive particles plays a crucial role in determining the rate and efficiency of cleaning.

Fine grades of abrasives are highly effective for cleaning new steelwork, while coarse grades are better suited for heavily corroded surfaces. When dealing with rust on pitted steel, fine abrasives offer superior results. Our team is well-versed in selecting the most appropriate abrasive grade and size to ensure optimal cleaning efficiency and surface preparation quality.

With our expertise and comprehensive range of abrasive blasting capabilities, you can trust us to deliver exceptional results for your metal surface preparation needs.
