How to Prevent Rust and Corrosion in Steel with Sandblasting?

How to Prevent Rust and Corrosion in Steel with Sandblasting

Corrosion and rust can severely destroy the exterior as well as the internal structure of your steel structure. However, our experts understand the steps to take so your steel never sees the effects of corroding elements with advanced sandblasting & coating.

As your sandblasting & coating experts, our goal is to deliver the best service we can. Unlike other companies, we do not simply paint over the old paint and rust. Instead, we make sure the surface is prepared correctly and apply a protective primer layer to prevent future damage.

Here’s the detailed steps of our sandblasting & coating service below:

Step 1: Cleaning the Surface

The first step in our anti-rust protection is surface cleaning. Our team very precisely removes dirt and grease to leave behind an immaculate steel surface. We use approved chemicals to remove any grease /oil and other contaminants to leave a spotless surface. This cleaning will allow your base metal to be ready for the sandblasting step.

Step 2: Removing Old Paint and Rust

We want your steel to be free from all old paint and rust before applying the first coating. Therefore, we work on removing as much of the old paint and rust as possible. If not addressed promptly, the old paint and rust can hollow out your entire metal, leaving behind nothing but debris.

Thus, to avoid a situation where your steel is internally and externally weakened, we do the following:

  • Our team of professionals will remove any old paint and rust by sandblasting the surface.
  • After cleaning the surface from the sandblasting, our team will toughen the structure with a primer to ensure proper adhesion.
  • After this, we will move on to applying the coating to your steel surface. This will prevent any rust-forming particles in the future.

Step 3: Applying Rust-inhibitive Primers to Your Steel Surface

The primer is a strong anti-rust formula.  Before we apply the final coating, we will apply this layer to prevent any future rusting problems. The type of primer we use is determined by the category of steel we are restoring. Once the primer is applied, we will have your steel coated and looking like new in no time.
