Blasting work we carry out in the shipping industry

How does our marine blasting work work?

During blasting, a powerful stream of (abrasive) grains is blown under high pressure onto your workpiece or boat. These grains penetrate deep into the pores and remove rust thoroughly. By applying a good surface treatment immediately after blasting, we solve the rust problem for you for a longer period of time. The choice of pressure and medium for blasting depends on the construction of your marine object and the material. With us blasting and coating company we have various blasting media at our disposal, including olivine sand, glass, coal slag, corundum, stainless steel and steel.

Our blasting techniques

When blasting ships and structures, not only is the material used very important, but the right technique is also needed to achieve the desired result. In our marine blasting work, we use the following blasting techniques:
  • Pearl blasting: In this technique, fine glass beads are blown against the surface at high speed. This gives a soft and even finish, without damaging the underlying material. This technique is ideally suited for blasting boats or structures made of soft metals.
  • Throwing jets (also called grit blasting): this involves forcefully spraying abrasive materials such as sand or steel grit against the surface. This technique also helps to roughen surfaces, ensuring better adhesion of paints and coatings.
  • Wet blasting: in this technique for blasting materials in shipping, water is added to the abrasive. As a result, less dust is released during the process, making it more environmentally friendly.
  • Vacuum blasting: in this form of blasting, we use a vacuum system that directly sucks up the abrasive and dirt released when blasting your boat. This minimises environmental and health risks.
  • UHD water jets: In ultra-high-pressure water blasting, we spray water at extremely high pressure to clean your surface. As no chemicals or abrasives are used, this is a very environmentally friendly method for marine blasting.
