The Experience, Processes, and Technology for your Shot Blasting Needs

Shot blasting is a resurfacing process that cleans the surface of metal components. During the manufacturing process, irregularities and uneven surfaces can appear on metal parts. Shot blasting is the process of containing the part in a Shot Blast machine and flinging or air blasting media at the part, such as: steel balls, glass or ceramic, smoothing out the surface and preparing it for final application.

At Halo Metal Prep, we have multiple sizes of machine capacity to enable us to shot blast virtually any shape component. We pride ourselves on the consistency of our finishes and we inspect every batch of parts before they leave our facility.

Steel Grit Blasting

Steel grit media is an angular abrasive that we offer to deburr, deflash, texture, remove rust and scale. This process can also be used to rapidly remove coatings as well as prepare the surface prior to painting. The deep etch provides superior bonding qualities. Industries served include die casting, fabricating, powder coating friction products bonding and equipment refurbishing.

Aluminum Oxide

Aluminum oxide like steel grit is an angular media, but without the ferrous properties. It’s fast cutting capabilities make it the common media of choice for many blast procedures. There are many uses such as scale & rust removal, preparation prior to top coating, plating and bonding. Coating removal on components where steel media may be too harsh or if there is no tolerance for ferrous contamination.

Glass Bead

A common and widely used media for many reasons. This inert media provides a superior finish without impregnating the surface with oxides which could lead to corrosion later. Glass beads are used for peening also, but have a tendency to break down quickly, especially at higher pressures. Efficient reclamation and classification processes are always a major priority in our facility.
