Sand Blasting Steel Before Industrial Powder Coating in Ipswich
Advance Sprayers understand that a quality industrial powder coating in Ipswich starts with an effective pre-treatment. We provide pre-treatment and coating under one roof so we can meet the 4-hour requirement set by the Australian Standards. The standard states that the powder coating must occur within 4 hours of the pre-treatment. Different substrates require different methods, and we use sandblasting to pre-treat steel.
Sandblasting is a mechanical cleaning method that removes dirt, previous coatings, black scale, and rust as well as smooths the surface by removing scratches. It prepares the surface by creating a surface area to which the coating can adhere without contaminates in between the steel and outside layer. If rust is caught between the steel and coating, it will cause the overlay to fail.
The powder coating must be done quickly after the sandblasting treatment because steel will oxidise when exposed to oxygen. The sandblasting removes any dirt, old paint, and rust that covers the surface to prevent oxidation and once it’s removed, the exposed steel will begin to erode quickly.
