What Is Shot blasting?
So what is shot blasting? It is where we blast the metal with small particles – sometimes called grit blasting or sand blasting – to take off all the many years of paint and grime and rust to bring it back to smooth bare metal. Sometimes a compressed air sandblaster will do the job, but to take off many layers of accumulated paint usually requires the power of throwing wheel technology.
Here at Classic Ironworks we use a variety of abrasive media, depending on the job; from recycled glass to sandblasting and shotblasting grit. Every job is different and whether the job requires a grit blaster or sand blaster we have the machinery to do it.
The final condition of the surface will depend on factors such as the velocity, shape and mass of the abrasive medium as well as the impactor angle and stroke density. Our highly trained team will select just the right tools and materials for your job requirements.
