Shot blasting is a mechanical cleaning process that is utilised to remove existing coatings or mill scale. It also removes any grease, dust and rust, preparing metal parts before applying fresh powder coating solutions.
Northpoint offers two types of shot blasting hanger type and booth.
Hanger type shot blasting is a semi automated process, where complete descaling, and reconditioning of parts is required.
A smooth finish is not the only benefit of shot blasting, after the metal part has been cleaned, the engineer can, at this point, also identify any structural issues such as compromised weld joints and corrosion. These issues can then be addressed to provide reinforced reliability and longevity of the part.
Northpoint can provide shot blasting of a commercial grade finish, meeting the ISO 8501-1 Sa 2.5 or ISO 8501-1 Sa 3 standards.
