HJC Protective Coatings Ltd have opened a new Blasting facility to complement its Protective Coatings Spraying operation. This means that all Components requiring protective coating can be prepared and finished on site, reducing overall processing times.


Surface preparation is the essential first stage treatment for all steel based substrates before coating can be applied, and it is generally accepted as being the most important factor affecting the total success of a corrosion protection system.

The performance of a coating is significantly influenced by its ability to adhere properly to the substrate material. Residual millscale on surfaces is an unsatisfactory base to apply modern, high performance protective coatings and is therefore removed by abrasive blast cleaning. Other surface contaminants such as oil and grease are also undesirable and must be removed.

The surface preparation process not only cleans the substrate, but also introduces a suitable profile to receive the protective coating.

We adhere to the following standards and subsections applicable to surface preparation of steel substrates: ISO 8501, 8502, 8503 and 8504
