Leyfos has made a Significant Investment in our Mechanical Engineering Department, with a purpose-built shot blasting room that allows us to clean the large metal surfaces on Steel Fabrications.
Shot blasting is a technological process of removing various impurities from different surfaces by using abrasive materials.
Shot blasting can clean off contaminants like dirt or oil, remove metal oxides like rust or mill scale, or deburr the surface to make it smooth. It is used for a surface protection and also prior-preparation of surfaces prior to our Coating processing.
Shot blasting eliminates the need for non-eco-friendly, harsh chemicals and also provides better blast pattern accuracy and wider abrasive selection. The finished surface is completely free from chemical deposits and dust content, without removing any virgin metal when removing scales.
It has emerged as one of the most efficient and cost-effective techniques for surface preparation prior to processes such as galvanising, welding, electroplating, glass coating, enamelling and rubberising.
