Shotblasting – Recognising Steel Production Processes

Shotblasting of steel plate, profiles, construction, and fabrications is a process to clean, descale, provide a specified surface profile and edge break as a surface preparation. The process detail is subject to the hardness and start condition of the steel and it is vital to know these factors prior to shotblasting and before application of a coating or paint to maximise the adherence potential and corrosion control.

This is a document made up of five parts  on  “How Do You Make Your Coatings Stick Better?”
