Corrosion

Corrosion is defined as "the chemical or electrochemical reaction between a metal and its environment resulting in the loss of the material and its properties."

When rust forms on an iron or steel structure, metal is lost from the surface, reducing cross section and strength. Rust is also unsightly and can cause contamination of the environment and industrial products. It is further detrimental in that it is not a stable base for coatings.

Preparation is the most important process to control corrosion. Sandblasting is the most cost effective process to create a profile to allow our special coatings to adhere to steel or other substrates.

Abrasive blasting, more commonly known as sandblasting, is the operation of forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material against a surface under high pressure to smooth a rough surface, roughen a smooth surface, shape a surface or remove surface contaminants.
