Shot Blasting / Dry Media Stripping
To remove corrosion from Ferrous metals and prepare the substrate for painting or other types of treatment e.g. Galvanizing etc
In the 1980’s it was estimated that corrosion in industry was costing the country around 150 million pounds a year and a large amount of this sum could be saved by wider application of well established corrosion control procedures. The commonly used structural metals (Iron, Steel) have inherent tendency to revert to the form in which they were dug out of the ground, in other words , unless they are protected from their environment, they will corrode.
Usually corrosion is slow, but occasionally it can occur catastrophically. Either way, it is one of the major causes of premature failure in structures. It is now widely understood that the correct surface preparation is the most important single factor in controlling the success or failure of a protective coating system (Paint).
Advantages of DMS:
Less chemical/toxic waste
Reduced stripping times
Better working conditions
Better quality end product (Corrosion removed).
