Shot Blasting

Get old items looking like new again with our specialist shot blasting service!

Whatever material, whether metal or wood, our professional shot blasting services can get any item looking like you just bought it.

Accurate and effective shot blasting takes high quality facilities and equipment and an experienced hand, something you will only get with 1st Choice Finishes Ltd.

Essentially, shot blasting is a very simple yet very effective idea. It involves the blasting of fine grains of iron shot at a material, which strips off outer layers, removes marks and stains and ensures a smooth surface.

We also offer an all-in-one approach, carrying out shot blasting, priming and painting or powder coating where required.

Ideal for powder coating

Shot blasting is a perfect preparation for powder coating and we can provide commercial, domestic and industrial customers with a simple all-in-one service when required.

We use a medium grade chilled iron shot which removes old paint and rust, leaving a perfectly clean surface that is ready for priming and powder coating.
