Shot Blasting is a surface treatment process using high velocity steel abrasive. Shot blasting is a method to obtain excellent cleaning and surface preparation for secondary finishing operations. Shot blasting removes old floor coatings and the contaminants within the top surface layer. It increases the concrete surface profile area up to three times the original surface area, paving the way for the new flooring installation to have improved application and stronger adhesion bond.
Shotblasting machines offer a precise method for cleaning and profiling flooring systems that can’t be done by hand. Removes contaminants from the surface while keeping it out of the air as well with a vacuum system. This allows us to grind concrete surfaces while maintaining a clean dust free environment.
