Established as a finishing technique since the late 1800s,
Shot blasting, or abrasive blasting, is an essential part of most steel mill, metal finishing and foundry operations.
Shot blasting is a mechanical method of propelling abrasive using a centrifugal wheel to remove surface contamination, scale and other impurities from the surface of steel applications, like structural steel including massive bridge girders and heavy construction equipment, large weldments, plate steel, bar and wire steel and foundry castings. In general, blasting prior to finishing serves three primary purposes: it cleans and descales surfaces, adds texture to enhance paint adhesion, and if done properly reduces maintenance costs by increasing coating life.
Blastec, Inc. has been doing business since 1976. We have hundreds of shot blasting machines and component retrofits in operation in the U.S. and abroad serving every industry that utilizes blast cleaning technology.
