Surface Preparation

At VacuBlast we understand the foundation of any quality protective coating or painting project is surface preparation. Sandblasting the material surface prior to coating application ensures a coarsened and etched profile for the coating to bond with, increasing the adhesion and durability of the finish.

As both surface preparation and protective coatings application is carried out within the same premises, productivity is increased and downtime is minimized, guaranteeing fast turnaround time and long-term corrosion protection.

VacuBlast is able to assist with the surface preparation of a wide variety of metal and hard substrates including:

  • Steel
