Shot Blasting is a method used to clean, strengthen or polish metal. Small particles are applied under pressure, abrading dirt and rust from the surface. Shot blasting is used in almost every industry that uses metal, including aerospace, automotive, construction, foundry, shipbuilding, rail, and many others. Shot Blasting is a method of preparing steelwork for a protective coating to be applied. Abrasive blasting / shot blasting is where abrasive material is propelled against a surface under high pressure to smooth out a rough surface, give texture to a surface, shape a surface, or remove surface contaminants.
GSL uses a variety of shot media from steel shot, aluminium oxide, glass bead and chilled iron, using a full range of grit sizes.
Shot blasting is an effective process to remove surface contaminant or clean and roughen a smooth surface before applying a primer or coating. Rust and mill skin are two surface contaminants which need to be removed at the shot blasting process to ensure a reliant adhesion of the primer or coating afterwards.
