Shot blasting is the process of blasting a concrete surface with steel shot (small steel balls) at a high velocity. This removes contamination and laitance (soft concrete) to reveal a mechanical profile for improved bonding. The concrete dust is recovered by a powerful dust collection system.

 

Advantages of Shot Blasting

As the method of surface preparation recommended by most coating manufacturers, steel shot blasting…

  • Eliminates the use of harsh, non-eco friendly chemicals and leaves the concrete floor with the desired profile.
  • Is known for high production rates, blast pattern accuracy, and wide abrasive selection.
  • Lends itself to efficient disposal of dust and other contaminants.
  • Can be performed indoors or outdoors.
  • Can be accomplished with our ride-on, diesel-powered machines or our walk-behind, electric powered machines.
