Shot Blasting

Shot Blasting Removes Existing Floor Coatings With Ease

Shot blasting sets the pace for a beautiful floor installation. This is the recommended process for achieving an adequate roughness profile when installing:

  • Cementitious urethane systems.
  • Epoxy coating systems.
  • Concrete and self-levelling systems.
  • Methyl Methacrylic (MMA) systems.

No other method tops shot blasting when it comes to removing your floor's existing paint, coatings, line markings, or excess adhesives. If you're looking for concrete resurfacing services in Alberta, contact Engineered Surface Systems (ESS) for beautiful results from trusted experts with decades of experience.

What Is the Shot Blasting Process and its Benefits?

During the shot blasting process, abrasive steel shots of varying sizes are directed downward at extreme velocity to create an ultra-clean surface. The purpose of this process is to create the right environment for enabling your new flooring treatment to bond properly with your concrete substrate. This is a very efficient process because each steel shot is actually recaptured by the blasting machine to be recycled for reuse during the same installation.

Speed is one of the main benefits of using blasting as part of your concrete resurfacing project

It's possible to prepare thousands of square feet per day when going through the process of removing existing floor coatings. In addition to assisting with the application of new floor coverings, a shot blasting service is a popular option for making concrete surfaces rougher to provide slip resistance in wet and slippery environments. It's a great choice when you need to address high-foot-traffic areas that become unsafe when wet. Blasting is also known for its precision and efficiency. It can produce similar results to work that is done by hand when cleaning and profiling flooring. In addition, blasting offers versatility due to its ability to work beautifully with an array of indoor and outdoor applications involving a wide range of surfaces.

Shot blasters offer a hygienic, dust-free way to resurface floors. Each shot blaster is connected to an industrial-grade vacuum with HEPA filters to keep dust out of the air. Shot blasting does an excellent job of opening pores within your substrate to allow liquid materials to soak into the concrete to create a superior adhesion.
