Our experienced staff will help you determine the appropriate surface preparation or blast cleaning system to match your requirements. Proper surface preparation is critical for the success of every cleaning, coating or lining project.
Shooting abrasive particles at a surface is the fastest and most thorough means of cleaning, descaling, debarring and removing oxides and other surface contaminants. What we use as an abrasive, the force with which it is blasted and the medium used to create the pressure are all variables that POST Industrial Services understands and can confidently match to the task in order to achieve the required result that the client demands.
POST undertakes both the everyday as well as the uncommon and unusual challenges. Whether it is structural steel, tank lining, heavy industry equipment concrete-stone walls and structures or special abatements such as lead coatings, we supply safe and effective on-site services.
For sensitive and tough substrates, we offer a variety of blast media choices to get the job done right. Example media blasting abrasives include grit, garnet, crushed walnut shells, glass beads and several dozen more.
Our fully trained abrasive blasters and painters are equipped to get the job done quickly, effectively and at a minimum downtime for our customers.
Bead blasting is the process of removing surface deposits by applying fine glass beads at a high pressure without damaging the surface.
Glass beads are manufactured from lead-free, soda lime-type glass, containing no free silica that is made into preformed ball shapes.
Glass beads produce a much smoother and brighter finish than angular abrasives.
Glass bead blasting produces a clean, bright, satin finish, without dimensional change of the parts.
Chemically inert and environmentally friendly, glass beads are an acceptable method of metal cleaning or surface finishing when properly controlled.
Glass beads are blasted at pressures between 40-80 psi.
Glass beads can be recycled approximately 30 times.
Glass beads are an ideal media for surfaces that have almost zero tolerance to surface damage such as steam turbines very thin metal sheets etc.
