Grit Blasting & Coatings
We offer total expertise in grit blasting and coating, which provides the most effective method for cleaning concrete, steel and timber.
Grit blasting comprises a mild abrasive and is best suited for the removal of surface contaminants, light rust, edge burrs and coating from most types of metal, including aluminium, cast iron and mild steel, as well as concrete and timber.
We are specialists in the field of grit blasting and although we primarily deal with concrete, steel and timber, our highly trained operatives also specialise in the cleaning of brick and stone.
Generally, we are called upon to remove multiple layer coatings from surfaces that are to undergo restoration or enhancement. Following grit blasting, we apply coatings by brush, roller or airless spray to specified film thicknesses. As appropriate, we can provide in-house capabilities to meet specific requirements.
Recent projects have included removing original coatings to soffits at Fort Dunlop, using open wet blast methods, followed by the application of anti-carbonation coatings; grit blasting and coating a new subway structure at Snow Hill Station; and grit blasting prior to concrete repairs and coating work at Kingstanding Shopping Centre.
