At TRO, we specialise in providing professional and reliable shot-blasting services for steel cleaning, re-surfacing or specialist coatings. Our state of the art fired shot blasting facilities can accommodate all forms of equipment and vehicles, and can be used for cleaning, descaling and preparing your vehicle’s surface for re-coat.
As part of our services at TRO, we offer a shot blasting technique to prepare metal surfaces for new paintwork. Shot blasting is a method used to clean, strengthen or polish metal back to its original state before a new coating of paint is applied. It is essential that all iron oxide, mill scale, rust and previous coatings are removed prior to the application of the new coating, so that the new paintwork is able to adhere to the metal. We apply a pressurised fluid, typically air, or a centrifugal wheel, to propel the media.
From agricultural tractors and trailers, to storage containers, diggers and all other forms of plant and machinery from the construction industry, all makes are welcome.
Our shot blasting service helps to promote the adhesion of the specialist paintings and treatments we offer;
it is a cost effective way to prepare steel and metal prior to the application of protective or decorative coating.
Shot blasting as an essential component of surface preparation prior to its decorative or protective coating is elucidated in the impacting of the surface of an object with a controlled stream of abrasive shot material to prepare the surface to meet specifications. It removes surface contaminants due to the abrasive impact; anything other than this at the time of painting will lead to the premature failing of the coating; rectification is expensive and the coating will have to be removed regardless.
