Surface preparation is the process of removing existing coatings and corrosion from surfaces such as steelwork, stone walls, stoves/fireplaces, oak beams, silo storage tanks and larger structures such as steel bridges.
Occasionally the term 'sand blasting', 'shot blasting' or 'grit blasting' is still used by some but a variety of different blast media is used to undertake surface preparation work.
We have a range of equipment which we use for surface preparation work, and we continuously invest the latest equipment.
Surface preparation for transport, fleet, agriculture and plant equipment
We have extensive experience at blast cleaning and respraying plant and machinery, including diggers / excavators, agricultural and commercial equipment and trucks.
Grit Blasting UK works with several renowned construction and engineering companies, providing on-site and mobile blast cleaning services.
Examples of our work range from classic car cleaning and restoration through to tractor and agricultural machinery and large fleet vehicles.
Our services are there for you, whatever your industry, including aggregates, construction, transport, plant and machinery and manufacturing.
Surface preparation for walls and buildings
From home renovation projects like brickwork fireplaces and chimney breasts to blast cleaning industrial units, we offer a comprehensive service for external and internal walls, ceilings, and complete buildings.
We enquire that the right media and the right amount of pressure is applied when we are blasting, giving you confidence in the car we take with your materials when working on any surface preparation project.
Blast cleaning does not damage your original brickwork, making it the best method of restoration for older buildings. We can remove old layers of paint and contamination to restore brick work to its original condition, preparing the surface for a new coat or restoring it to its original look.
