Media Blasting

Your One-Stop Shop for all your coating needs

Every item entering our facility has a surface that must be properly prepared for powder coating. Media blast cleaning is an excellent form of surface preparation as it ensures optimal coating adhesion. End usage and customer expectations help to determine the required condition of the substrate prior to applying our powder coatings. Coating Methods, Inc. has 2 separate automated media blasting operations on-site to accommodate your specific needs.

Advantages of Media Blasting

  • Provides better coating adhesion due to the rough surface profile after media blasting
  • Steel and aluminum oxide grit can remove tough rust easily from hard to reach corners
  • Generates minimal or no waste since steel grit and aluminum oxide can be reused repeatedly
  • Media blasting is very cost-effective and minimizes preparation time prior to powder coating
