Sandblast on steel: the key to good preparation for painting

Do you have a metal structure or piece of machinery that needs prepping for painting or galvanizing? Want to give your metal products a special finish before painting them? At Hydro Pression, we offer a range of sandblast techniques for metal surfaces to meet your needs.

Metal (before)
  • Rust removal
  • Mill scale removal
  • Lead, latex or oil paint removal
  • Preparation for painting or galvanizing
  • Texturing metal surfaces
  • Welding mark removal

We work according to SSPC standards with the finish of your choice:

  • Commercial Blast SSPC-SP6 NACE #3 : A commercial blast cleaned surface, when viewed without magnification, shall be free of all visible oil, grease, dust, dirt, mill scale, rust, or paint. Random staining shall be limited to no more than 33 percent of each unit area of surface as defined, and may consist of light shadows, slight streaks, or minor discolorations caused by stains of rust, stains of mill scale, or stains of previously applied coating.
  • Near-white Blast Cleaning SSPC-SP10 NACE #2 : A near-white metal blast cleaned surface, when viewed without magnification, shall be free of all visible oil, grease, dust, dirt, mill scale, rust, or paint. Random staining shall be limited to no more than 5 percent of each unit area of surface as defined, and may consist of light shadows, slight streaks, or minor discolorations caused by stains of rust, stains of mill scale, or stains of previously applied coating.
