Sandblasting for the off shore industry
Seawater means salt which aids the corrosion process even more. Customers need an extremely rugged barrier to protect the steel from corrosion, because these assets are very costly to build and it’s important to service them quickly and get back to the task at hand.
Sandblasting prepares the surface to put a coating onto as a barrier to the steel to protect it from corrosion and the best way to get a surface readying for coating is through abrasive blasting.

Choosing the right abrasive
The most common types of abrasives used in the off shore industry are usually expendable abrasives including crushed glass, copper slag and garnet. These are popular among blasters as they are able to clean the surface while removing the coating in less time. Our experts can help you choose what abrasive would work best for your job.
