Shot blasting is a technique used to remove existing coatings or mill scale from metal parts before applying powder coating solutions. It also removes any grease, dust and rust.
Hanger type shot blasting is semi automated process, where 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.
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.
