In order to deliver the specialists coatings required to protect against harsh environments associated with industries ranging from marine to aerospace, items must first be shot blasted to remove all traces of previous paint, coating, rust and dirt.

Meticulous surface preparation is the key too ensuring a high quality wet paint or powder coating can defend against corrosion and abrasion under extreme conditions.

Advanced Colour Coatings ensure the correct pre-treatment is carried out in order to deliver optimum performance. Pre-treatments such as shot blasting are essential to the longevity and integrity of a given item. All paint systems and coatings will fail prematurely unless the surface has been properly prepared to receive the coating material.

Our in-house facility allows us to control every aspect of the coating process from the initial assessment and pre-treatment such as shot blasting, to the final application of coating and curing. Our research and development department can identify the most efficient and effective pre-treatments for a given surface depending on the requirements of our customers and the conditions the given item will be exposed to.

By carrying out both shot blasting and powder coating at a single site ACC can enhance overall  efficiency. Unfinished shot blasted items are susceptible to rapid corrosion and rust, especially during transit to a separate powder coating facility. Integrating these procedures significantly decreases delays and helps guarantee a fully finished product within hours of the initial blasting process.

What is Shot Blasting 

Industrial shot blasting for powder coating is a preparatory process used to clean and prepare the surface of metal components or structures before applying a powder coating. During shot blasting, small metallic or non-metallic abrasive particles, known as “shot,” are propelled at high velocity onto the surface of the material being treated. This process removes contaminants, such as rust, scale, old paint, and other surface imperfections, while also creating a roughened surface profile.

The roughened surface profile enhances adhesion between the metal substrate and the subsequent powder coating, ensuring better durability and longevity of the coating. Additionally, shot blasting can help to improve the appearance of the finished product by smoothing out surface irregularities.

Industrial shot blasting is a crucial step in the powder coating process, as it effectively prepares the surface of metal substrates for optimal adhesion and performance of the powder coating.
