What is Shot Blasting:

Shot Blasting is an extremely effective method of removing dirt, graffiti, grime, rust or paint from surfaces using compressed air.

Often referred to as Sand Blasting or Shot Blasting, it can be used in a wide variety of applications; cleaning and refurbishing anything from industrial, commercial and domestic buildings to cars and smaller individual items.

Shot Blasting (also known as Blast Cleaning) uses highly pressured air to force abrasive media onto surfaces, making it an excellent method of removing paint and other coatings from a variety of substrates such as brickwork, timber, steel, iron, wood, concrete, glass, fibreglass, stone etc. It is also suitable for providing a profile on steel before painting to ensure the new coating adheres properly. Shot Blasting is one of the most effective methods of removing unwanted rust and contaminates from metal objects, safely removing coatings from both ferrous and non-ferrous components. It is much more forgiving to rusty steel, body filler and fibreglass repairs which can be totally consumed by acid dipping so is ideal for areas of metal that may have had repairs in the past, such as bodywork.

Shot blasting is a faster process than more traditional methods and can be up to 75% quicker. This means more time and money is saved in the long run, meaning your project will be completed quicker. Steel pellets are also reusable making it even more efficient.

What Can Shot Blasting be used for?

Metal is one of the most popular materials to go through the shot blasting process. Due to most metals having a hard surface, shot blasting is able to clean or remove the top layer of material without causing any damage.

Concrete which is used in the building industry is another popular material to be shot blasted. A common use case for this is in the preparation of warehouse flooring, where the tarnished surface is removed to reveal a smooth and clean floor. This floor can then have coatings or paint applied to seal the concrete.

Any defect in the surface being blasted can easily be seen once the process has been carried out. The tiny pellets used can also smooth out any tiny surface defects ready for any further work. If a more serious defect is identified then the shot blaster can be used to help level it out and then checked to see if it is not serious.

Shot Blasting Vs Sand Blasting

Still widely referred to as Sand Blasting, it was actually made illegal in the UK in 1999 due to the risk of silicosis, a potentially fatal lung disease, caused by the fine silica dust particles in common sands. The Sand Blasting performed today is actually what is known as Shot Blasting (or Grit Blasting) which uses substitute abrasives such as glass beads and steel grit which pose no such silica dust risk.
