Manual blasting has been a proven and effective mechanical pre-treatment at Ulamo Coating for years. This is how we remove rust, mill scale, annealing scale and other coatings. By blasting in the right way, a clean, rough base material with a so-called good anchor pattern is created. This is then suitable for further surface treatment.

What is blasting?

During blasting, blasting grit is blown against or along the object in a certain mixing ratio with air and pressure. This is done in a closed blasting booth. Before a product is blasted, we protect threaded, rotating parts, axle journals and other vulnerable parts. For blasting, the following applies: the harder the material, the easier it is to blast. Because rust has a hard structure, blasting is a good way to remove rust.

Strict environmental requirements

At Ulamo, we blast in special blasting booths. These booths have a steel floor and walls covered with rubber. An extraction system removes the released dust. The blaster is well protected during his work; he wears a blasting suit, boots, gloves and an overpressure helmet with external air supply.

After blasting

Because flash rust can start again after blasting at lightning speed, we perform the after-treatment quickly. Our starting point? When it’s still warm from the blasting! For outdoor applications, we metal-spray the products after blasting. This creates the perfect adhesion layer.

Maximum dimensions for blasting

7,000 x 2,000 x 2,600 mm
The maximum capacity is limited when the maximum length, breadth or depth measurements are reached.
