What is Shotblasting?

Shotblasting is a fast and effective process used to prepare steel surfaces for recoating.

Using compressed air, an abrasive material similar to coarse sand is forced through a jet nozzle at close quarters on to the surface of the material to be cleaned.

Shotblasting should be used to clean painted, heavily scaled and rusted surfaces – especially before galvanizing.

Shotblasting is carried out under the BS 7079 standard.
