Surface prep is perhaps the most important step in all coatings applications. In comparison to other surface prep methods, blast cleaning is often regarded as the most effective way to clean and prepare a substrate for coatings applications, primarily because it provides the proper surface roughness and increases the surface area -- two critical factors in achieving physical and chemical adhesion between a steel surface and an organic coating.
BlasTek offers a range of surface prep solutions. Depending on the scope of the project, you can send your items to us to blast at our facility, or our mobile blasting rigs will come to you with a crew of qualified and experienced personnel.
We prided ourselves on repeat business. Some of the items our clients continue to bring us includes: structural steel and decking, beams, fabricated steel structures, storage vessels, and other commercial and industrial items. Abrasive blasting allows us to remove rust, mill scale, old coatings, and other contaminants to prepare various substrates for high-performance coatings. Depending on the job, we blast from levels ranging from SSPC-SP5 (white metal blasting) to SSPC SP7 brush-blasting.
