Steelhead Powder Coating Offers In-House Sandblasting
Before powder coating your materials, it is vital to meticulously clean them so that they are free of debris, paint, oils, rust, and corrosion. Uncleaned and improperly prepared surfaces decrease the ability for powder coating to adhere to and coat your materials, resulting in uneven shapes and blemishes. Fortunately, at Steelhead Powder Coating, we provide in-house sandblasting services for clients in Salt Lake City and throughout the state of Utah.
The process involves blasting sand at a high velocity toward objects to remove their unwanted finishes. This approach exposes the objects’ bare metal for our powder coating process, resulting in an even application of color. Sandblasting is ideal for hard-to-reach areas and odd-shaped objects. It is the best way to produce an even surface for your materials, resulting in a smoother finish when the powder coating process is complete.
Preparing our Work for Powder Coating
When you use sandpaper, a belt sander, or an orbital sander, you create lines and textures that can negatively affect your end-product. With sandblasting, we create a blank canvas covering the entire object, perfectly preparing it for the powder coating stage. Sandblasting also reaches deep crevices and strange angles impossible to sand by alternative methods. There are a wide variety of textures and types of sand mix to use to find the perfect abrasive technique for your material. Our trained technicians will take care of this process, making sure your object is ready for a beautiful powder coat.
Tough on Coatings, Safe for Your Materials
Sandblasting uses slag that is tough enough to clean the surface of your metal object without damaging the original structure. This enables us to remove coatings like graffiti without destroying a street sign or rust without negatively impacting a bike rack. It is also recyclable. The fine gravel used in our process is used many times, resulting in environmentally-friendly removal. For a more intensive project, a more abrasive material may be used to remove elements such as thick rust, corrosion, multiple layers of paint, and even prior powder coating.
Whether you are prepping your item to be powder coated or need rust or hard-to-remove paint stripped off an object, contact Steelhead Powder Coating today for your sandblasting and preparation needs in Salt Lake City and the surrounding communities.
