Grit blasting is a mechanical cleaning process that uses spheres of material to remove oxides and other debris from the surface of another material.
Dirty, oxidized or otherwise unfinished material is undesirable for many reasons. Applying a coating to unclean materials can cause a lack of adhesion.
To ensure we maintain the overall quality of our tanks we have our own in-house shot blasting and painting facilities.
All our tanks are blasted to SA2.5. This removes any corrosion or contamination that might be present on the surface of the steel, preparing the steel for optimal paint adhesion.
