Shotblast Services

What is the shotblasting process?

The term “shot blasting” refers to the process of propelling abrasive media material with centrifugal or mechanical force. This abrasive treatment method uses a device similar to a spinning wheel to centrifugally accelerate shot-like material and blast it against a surface.

CHROME 40 grade stainless steel blasting media is used to produce a uniform “silvery grey” appearance for aluminium products, suitable for an instant cosmetic perspective or coating adhesion

Is shotblasting available after heat treatment?

Where does shotblasting sit in the process line?

If a product requires dye pen, this is required to be carried out prior to shotblasting, shotblasting before dye pen will cover any discontinuities.
