What is shot blasting?

Shot blasting is used to prime and clean surfaces, removing rust, scale or old coatings to expose clean bare metal ready for subsequent treatment. It also provides an effective method of preparing a surface with a roughened profile which promotes the adhesion of the specialist coatings we offer.
