Steel Sandblasting and Industrial Coatings

Aeroblast Abrasive Blasting specialises in the Abrasive blasting cleaning and coating of steel surfaces to Australian Standards 1627.4 as per the job requirements. there are a range of different standards we adhere to based upon each individual clients needs.

SA1 - Light blast cleaning.

When viewed without magnification, the surface shall be free from visible oil, grease and dirt, and from poorly adhering mill scale, rust, paint coatings and foreign matter. The appearance corresponds to the prints designated Sa 1 in AS 1627.9.NOTE: Mill scale, rust or paint coating is considered to be poorly adhering if it can be removed by lifting with a blunt putty knife.

SA2 (commercial blast)

Thorough blast cleaning. When viewed without magnification, the surface shall be free from visible oil, grease and dirt, and shall be free from most mill scale, rust, paint coatings and foreign matter. Any residual contamination shall be firmly adhering (see note to Sa 1).

2.5 (near white metal)

Very thorough blast cleaning. When viewed without magnification, the surface shall be free from visible oil, grease and dirt, and shall be free from mill scale, rust, paint coatings and foreign matter. Any remaining contamination shall show only as slight stains in the form of spots or stripes

SA3 (White Metal)

Blast cleaning to visually clean steel. When viewed without magnification, the surface shall be free from visible oil, grease and dirt, and shall be free from mill scale, rust, paint coating and foreign matter. It shall then have a uniform metallic colour

Using abrasive blasting methods to clean steel surafces can aid in removing rust, paint, oxidants, grime and grease creating a perfectly clean surface for the new potective coatings system to adhere to. Sandblasting steel can create either a smooth or rough finish depnedant upon the job requirement by utilising different types of abrasive such as garnet, crushed glass or glass bead and various blast pressures. Projects we can assist with include:

- Cars, Trucks and Trailers

- Shutdowns

- Structural Steel

- Machinery/ earth moving equipment

- Plants

- Plant and equipment

- Gas Pipes

Aeroblast can also assist in applying industrial protective coatings after blasting to protect your freshly clean surface for years to come. These services range from a simple single pac primer to a 3 coat 2 pack system, primer, intermediate and topcoat. We also offer specialised services such as inorganic zinc which is used where high temperature protection is required, Aeroblast commonly uses this product on mobile gas tankers and self priming top coats. All of our services are performed by our highly trained and insured team to the highest standard possible using only the best quality products available.

All types of steel structures are affected by corrosion everyday such as environmental conditions, salt, water, chemicals, oils and physical wear and tear to name a few. Corrosion is not only a terrible eye sore but it also drastically affects the durability and reliabilty of your steel surface which can inturn result in expensive repairs and project down time. Severity of corrosion depends on the location and use of your projects, highly used projects located near saltwater are always at the most risk of severe corrosion.

Sandblasting and the application of protective coatings is the best weapon against corrosion provoding long term protection to your project, feel free to contact one of your sandblasting and protective coatings specilaists for a no obligation quote and advice on how to protect your steel surface today!
