Quality assured, mobile site abrasive blasting and protective coating specialists, with in-house CIP Nace certified inspectors.
The protection of steel and concrete by abrasive blasting and coating is one of the most economical and effective methods of combating corrosion, chemical attack and abrasion.
As specialists in the field of grit blasting, we primarily deal with concrete, steel and timber but our highly trained staff also specialise in the cleaning of brick and stone and use state-of-the-art methods and technology to provide a wide range of abrasive blasting solutions to our industrial clients. From heavy grit and high-pressure for the tough jobs to ultra-fine for the most delicate surfaces, we have the right knowledge, tools and equipment for your project.
Our trained and certified blasters and applicators are experienced in all facets of the use and application of blasting and painting equipment and materials and have successfully completed many major projects throughout the state. We currently use four standard types of media for blasting:
- Steel Grit is a cost effective general purpose media typically used for steel fabrications, gates railings, castings and cast iron. Structural steel for all civil, mining and construction applications can be blasted professionally using garnet steel shot/grit abrasives or 40000 PSI water to prep for any form of coating you may need. Grit blasting comprises a mild iron abrasive and is best suited for the removal of surface contaminants, light rust, edge burrs and coating from most types of metal, including aluminium, cast iron and mild steel, as well as concrete and timber.
- Garnet is available in various grades, is used on steel or at a low pressure for more delicate items or jobs which require a smoother finish, including concrete etching as well as general blasting work.
- Soda ash blasting is available for surface cleaning without creating a profile.
- High Pressure Water blasting is an effective method to clean or prepare surfaces in conjunction with abrasive blasting or before the application of protective coatings. Pressure varies from 1000psi to 40,000 psi.
Any steel that has been professionally blasted can be coated successfully to provide many more years of visual and structural integrity. The essential first stage treatment of a steel substrate before the application of any coating is the most important factor affecting the total success of a corrosion protection system. A protective coating can then be painted on, sprayed on, plated on or even welded onto a material. Paint systems range from single Pac oxides and phosphate primers to inorganic zinc rich to multiple epoxy coat systems designed to specifically protect steel or substrate from corrosion in the environment it faces.
Mobile units can work successfully at any industrial or commercial application, blasting any surface and the exact same level of quality and service will be enjoyed when you take advantage of our mobile service.
