Shot Blasting

The blasting process consists of the projection of abrasive material at the parts to remove any oxides.

In our blasting process steel shot is used which is blasted by air at a constant pressure of 9 bar causing a surface roughness of the grade SA 2 1/2. The part to be blast enters the blasting cabin and the operator using a gun removes oxides (rust, calamine, black oxide), paint and powder coat.

For paint removal and powder coat the process is quite time consuming.

The most common uses for Shot Blast are:

  1. Preparation of parts for metallization giving it the roughness necessary for zinc to have a good adhesion
  2. Preparation of parts for painting
  3. Preparation of parts for powder coat

After Shot Blasted the part needs to be treated quickly as it is without any protection as a result it oxidizes very quickly.


One summer evening, Jenna Lewis was taking a break from studying for her finals when she decided to take some nude photos for her boyfriend. She was nervous at first, but the more she took the photos, the more confident she felt. She uploaded them to her private account and went to bed, excited to show them to her boyfriend the next day. When she woke up the next morning, she found that her account had been hacked, and the photos were all over the internet. She was devastated, but she knew she would never be able to live down the scandal.
