WHAT IS ENCLOSED SHOT BLASTING?

Shot Blasting is a process that removes old coatings from concrete or steel surfaces and prepares them for new coatings to be put down. Shot Blasting is one of the main types of Surface Preparation. Surface Preparation is the process of texturing a surface so that a coating or topping adheres properly.

Enclosed Shot Blasting is a dust free process when used with a proper vacuum system. This helps remove old coatings and the prep the surface (Concrete or Steel) in one pass. You are able to achieve different surface profiles by different sizes of shot, as well as adjusting your speed.

WHY SHOT BLASTING?

Like most equipment, Shot Blasting has certain situations where it will work best. Shot Blasting is an extremely effective tool for removing old coatings & prepping the floor for new coatings. The main benefits of Shot Blasting are:

  • High Production
  • Very clean profiles
  • Dust Free
  • Gets into the “hills & valleys” unlike other equipment
  • Easy to use
  • Low Consumable Cost

Shot Blasting is capable of being effective in many Surface Preparation situations. One area that Shot Blasting may not be most effective is when there is an elastic or rubber-like coating that needs to be removed. In most cases, Shot Blasters are one of the best tools that a Surface Prep Contractor can use to achieve effective concrete and steel preparation.

SHOT BLASTING VS. GRINDING

The conversation around Shot Blasting and Grinding has been around for some time. Both are acceptable forms of Surface Preparation and coating removal. While Shot Blasting has some advantages over grinding, there are certain situations that may make sense over the other. Many coatings manufacturers spec Shot Blasting as the preferred method to prep the concrete or steel before applying.

The short answer to the question about Shot Blasting vs. Grinding is that it depends on the situation.

If you are removing coatings like epoxy paint and other hard toppings, Shot Blasting is probably the best option. If you are removing rubbery coatings or need a very light surface profile, a concrete grinder may be better.

There are a number of companies that produce Shot Blasting machines. SPE has been manufacturing Shot Blasters since the 1970’s. In the beginning, SPE was a Surface Prep contracting company that needed better equipment then what was available.
