Abrasive blasting is the industry standard of preparing surfaces in order to receive a coating application. Abrasive blasting, more commonly known as sandblasting, is the operation of forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material against a surface under high pressure to smooth a rough surface, roughen a smooth surface, shape a surface or remove surface contaminants.

This method allows the blasting technician to remove surface contaminants, mill scale, rust and already applied coatings from the substrate, ensuring a new clean surface on which a new coating can be applied which then creates a mechanical bond with the substrate.

Our portable blasting services are generally required for but not limited to:

  • Graffiti Removal
  • Building / Concrete Restoration
  • Weld Inspections
  • Tank Repairs
  • Heater Tubes
  • Substrate Coating Preparation
  • Weld Connections
  • Pipeline Girth Welds
  • Pipeline Integrity Digs

A girth weld coating is a protective fluid layer that is applied to the metal surface of two pipes that have been joined along their circumference during pipeline construction. These coatings are designed to prevent corrosion and are often produced in the form of an epoxy or polyurethane.

Welded components such as girth welds are susceptible to unique types of corrosion such as intergranular corrosion and crevice corrosion. Therefore, corresponding unique forms of corrosion prevention measures are performed to protect these welds. Such measures include the use of girth weld coatings, which are thicker than most coatings and are designed to withstand high temperatures.
