Abrasive Blasting & Protective Coatings
Abrasive blasting, coupled with the application of protective coatings and painting services, is one of the most effective and economical methods of protection for your steel and concrete assets. The abrasive blasting and protective coating process will remove a build-up of dirt, existing coatings, grease, corrosion, grime and other contaminants. Once the surface of your asset has been prepared, a protective coating system that is best suited to the service conditions of your asset is applied. The coating system will protect against corrosion, intense heat and other harsh elements. Our protective coatings are suited for the tough industrial, mining, marine and agricultural environments of Perth, it’s surrounding areas and regional WA.
What is Abrasive Blasting or Sandblasting?
Abrasive blasting, commonly known as sandblasting, is the high-speed propelling of a stream of abrasive material against a surface using compressed air, liquid or steam. It is typically used to smooth a rough surface, roughen a smooth surface or remove coatings, contaminants, corrosion and residues from hard surfaces.
What is wet abrasive blasting?
Wet abrasive blasting is a process that uses water to propel the abrasive components against a surface – used to clean or prep many different materials for coating or to achieve a level surface roughness. The water that’s used in the process provides a barrier between the abrasive material and the surface material.
Abrasive Blasting and Sandblasting
As part of surface preparation and prior to the application of protective coatings, we use a mechanical force to propel blast media at a surface ensuring it’s clean and contaminate free. Our abrasive blasting services include steel grit blasting, glass bead blasting, soda blasting, garnet blasting and water blasting. Choosing the correct abrasive blast media is critical in providing quality and conforming surface profiles that meet Australian Standards. The type of surface, the condition of an existing coating and the desired finish need to be considered when choosing the most suitable abrasive blast media.
Protective coatings enhance the appearance and longevity of equipment, machinery, structures and materials in harsh environments, providing comprehensive protection against abrasion, corrosion, chemical impact and environmental conditions. BUSS will help protect your assets and infrastructure with high-quality coatings, from corrosion control to heat resistance, applying a protective coating to suit your asset. Some of the protective coatings we use include zinc coatings, epoxy primers & coatings, polyurethanes, epoxy mastic coatings, high build polyamide coatings, micaceous iron oxide coatings and siloxane coatings.
