|The most important step in producing proper adhesion to any substrate is the first step…surface preparation. Without the proper surface preparation, any bonding attempt is very likely to fail.We can perform any kind of surface preparation for steel parts. No job is too big. We can also blast other substrates such as Aluminum, Copper, Brass, Stainless Steel and Hasteloy.|

Solvent Cleaning – Removal of oil, grease, dirt, soil, salts and contaminants by cleaning with solvent, vapor, alkali, emulsion, or steam.
|SSPC-SP 5 (NACE 1)
White Metal Blast Cleaning – Removal of all visible rust, mill scale, paint, and foreign matter by blast cleaning by wheel or nozzle (dry or wet) using sand, grit or shot. (For very corrosive atmospheres where high cost of cleaning is warranted.)
|SSPC-SP 6 (NACE 3)
Commercial Blast Cleaning – blast cleaning until at least two-thirds of the surface area is free of all visible residues. (For conditions where thoroughly cleaned surface is required.)
|SSPC-SP 7 (NACE 4)
Brush-Off Blast Cleaning – Blast cleaning of all except tightly adhering residues of mill scale, rust and coatings, exposing numerous evenly distributed flecks of underlying metal
|SSPC-SP 10 (NACE 2)
Near-White Blast Cleaning – Blast cleaning nearly to White metal cleanliness, until at least 95% of the surface area is free of all visible residues. (For high humidity, chemical atmosphere, marine, or other corrosive environments.)
