What is Shot Blasting?

Not long ago, some years back, sand blasting was used to remove the old paint and rust off the metal surface. The main drawback of using sand was the harmful residue produced during the procedure. Today, sand blasting is replaced by shot blasting techniques. In case the paint is to be removed for the new paint job or corrosion has crept into the metal that needs immediate removal, shot blasting Birmingham is the right choice. In shot blasting, shots of small abrasive substances are continuously fired onto the metal surface with a pressurised air force. Substances like small metal balls, organic shells of nuts, etc. are used for shot blasting.

Shot blasting helps a metal to develop a surface that is ready to apply a new coat of paint. The layers of paint adhere to the blasted surface in the best possible ways. It makes the surface rough enough for the paint to sit in the cavities formed on the metal. Another advantage of shot blasting is the removal of rust from the metal. Rusting can eat away the surface as well as the core of any metal body. With the help of shot blasting, rust can easily be removed.
