Surface Preparation

 

The most common cause of premature coatings failure is inadequate surface preparation.

 

Attaining the right anchor pattern or cleanliness level specified by the coating manufacturer will ensure proper adhesion to the surface it is being applied to.

 

Each coating will have different requirements. Simply blasting a surface clean without technical information on what mil profile and cleanliness level that particular coating requires will risk premature coatings failure.

 

Pacific Dustless Blasting Inc can attain a Mil profile of 0.5 to 4 + and SP levels 5,6,7,10 for any surface preparation requirements your surface calls for. 

Common methods used by PDB are sandblasting wet and dry or shot blasting.

 

When prepping metals for paint during a wet blast. Holdtight 102 is used in the water stream which effectively ensures that the surface is thoroughly cleaned for paint. Holdtight 102 is a salt remover / flash rust preventer and is a cost-effective alternative to single purpose, multi-step salt removal products.
