Shot blasting can be an extremely effective way of cleaning and preparing a piece of metal for a new coating. Using compressed air, blast media is propelled towards a surface, cleaning and polishing the metal.
As effective as shot blasting is, there are a number of key benefits that show just how useful this technique is. In this blog, we are going to discuss the main advantages of shot blasting and why it is the preferred way of polishing a metal surface.
One key advantage to shot blasting that you may not think of is the fact that it is actually a much more environmentally friendly process than its alternatives. Shot blasting effectively cleans and polishes surfaces without the use of acid or any special pellets.
Being able to properly clean metal surfaces by using blast media, and not other harmful cleansing agents, means that shot blasting is one of the most environmentally friendly ways of getting this job done to a high standard.
An issue that comes up with using metal as a primary material for construction or machinery is the ever-present danger of rust and corrosion. Moisture can easily get trapped under issues such as rust, and cause even further damage to occur over time.
Shot blasting is an incredibly effective way of removing traces of rust and corrosion from a surface. This allows the moisture to be released, saving the surface from any further damage.
The process of shot blasting is a great way of making sure that a metal surface is fully prepped to receive a fresh paint job or any other coating. After shot blasting takes place, the metal surface will be able to hold paints and other coatings far easier.
Shot blasting a surface will mean that it will bond with a coating far easier. This means that a paint job will last far longer, saving you the time, money and effort of having to re-do a coating after a short period of time.
