Blasting is done before a protective coating is added to strip imperfections such as rust and other contaminants from the metal surface. It cleans the metal and provides a better surface to hold a protective coating.
Abrasive blasting 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. A pressurized fluid, typically compressed air, or a centrifugal wheel is used to propel the blasting material (often called the media).
There are several variants of the process, using various media; some are highly abrasive, whereas others are milder. Blast media and anchor profiles are determined by the paint technical data sheet for the product being applied to the base material.
