What Is Shot Blaster
BlastKing’s shot blaster is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly method for preparing concrete and steel surfaces.

Concrete shot blasting is the preferred method of surface preparation, recommended by most coating manufacturers. It produces excellent bonding characteristics that promote reduced coating failure and maximum floor life.
This labor-saving and time-saving process strip clean and profiles simultaneously. It leaves the surface immediately ready for the application of coatings or overlays—eliminating drying time and costly disposal procedures associated with other surface preparation methods.
BlastKing’s vacuum shot blasters are widely used in concrete surface preparation. Such as Bridge decks, steel plates, steel box girder bridges, high-speed railroads, airport runways, highways, airports to increase the friction area, ship decks, waterproof construction shot blasting, industrial floors, etc.
Prepares concrete for epoxy flooring services companies.
Most epoxy services companies provide epoxy flooring systems requiring waterproof, non-porous, easy-to-clean, chemical and abrasion resistant, etc. The self-contained vacuum dust collecting movable shot blasters are always the best for concrete surface preparation before any overlays.
On highways, asphalt road sometimes has oil exudate due to climate, affecting the vehicle’s regular operation. BlastKing shot blaster can directly remove the oil exudate on the road surface and improve the anti-slip performance caused by oil exudate reduction.
It is a big problem to remove the old marking lines on the road. With the marking removal shot blasting machines, you can easily remove the marking lines; it is especially suitable for cleaning cold paint markings and cleaning and cleaning surfaces such as municipal pedestrian streets.
Removal of road markings, airport markings, pedestrian road dirt, square dirt, workshop floor dirt, and old coatings
Prepares parking lots, garage decks, commercial floor & industrial floor
Before installing high-strength industrial floor systems for all applications, the concrete surface needs surface preparation. The shot blasting process can increase the surface roughness, significantly growing the durability; when using resin material coverings first shot blasting treatment can substantially improve the resin coverings and the original grass-roots bonding strength.
Removal of tire rubber marks on the airport runway
On the airport runway, high-speed take-off and landing aircraft will leave tire markings on the runway. This result will affect the safety of aircraft take-off and landing. The marking removal shot blaster can be adjustable according to the different conditions of the runway cleaning speed and cleaning depth. Cleaning the surface is very neat and beautiful. Significantly winter construction is not affected.
Anti-skid treatment of asphalt pavement
The anti-slippery on road surfaces also can not be ignored; every year, road surface slippage caused by traffic accidents continues to rise. For example, in the turning section, accident-prone sections with road surface shot blasting machine\flooring mobile shot blasting machine to improve the anti-skid performance of passing vehicles, very convenient and flexible.
Steel bridge anti-corrosion coating
Nowadays, the shot blasting process in the steel bridge anti-corrosion coating is widely used. Most of the bridges under construction have been built before the anti-corrosion primer or other sprayings chose to use the shot blasting process for surface cleaning and roughness treatment. The shot blasting process for steel bridge decks can reach SA2.5/SA3 and can control the degree of roughness to meet the user’s coating requirements. The whole process is a dust-free operation, mobile, Convenient, and environmentally friendly.
Clean off the rust & contaminants from steel plates, ship decks, steel bridge decks, and oil drilling platforms.
The shot blaster can blast processing on the ship deck, bridge deck, oil drilling platform, chemical tanks, the ship’s internal surface, steel plate surface, etc.
The shot blasting process will remove oxidation, rust removal, and roughening treatment, the roughness level of Sa2.5-3.0 grade, fully meet the requirements of anti-corrosion coating or heavy anti-corrosion coating pre-treatment.
Maintenance of the tunnel
Cement concrete is generally used for the tunnel’s road surface, and this is for waterproofing considerations and the material’s flame and oil resistance. But this also puts higher requirements for the anti-skid performance of the long tunnel pavement. The shot blasting process is a treatment method with simple construction, small equipment investment, remarkable effect, and environmental protection.
The pavement in tunnels is generally made of cement concrete for reasons of water resistance as well as material resistance to fire and oil. But this also puts high demands on the anti-slip performance of long tunnel pavement. It is still difficult to solve the problem; the concrete shot blasting process is a simple construction, a small investment in equipment, significant effect, and an environmentally friendly treatment method.
