Shot Blasting

Concrete floor coatings require proper surface preparation in order for the coating materials to obtain proper adhesion to the concrete substrate. Shotblasting is a self contained mechanical means of surface preparation, is the method strongly preferred by coating manufacturers and industry trade associations.

Coating systems can fail if the thin top surface of the concrete called laitance, sealers, curing agents and other contaminants are not removed. Shotblast surface preparation is utilized to clean the concrete surface and provides a proper surface profile along with removing laitance, sealers and curing agents. Shotblast surface preparation produces very little airborne dust or contaminations do to the utilization of a filtered vacuum system.
