The key factor in the durability of any floor markings is the preparation undertaken prior to laying the paint. The adage ‘failing to prepare is preparing to fail’ takes on a literal meaning here.
Vacuum shot blasting is the process of firing tiny metal beads at the floors surface. This removes any power float or surface contamination from the area to be painted and leaves an open surface that the paint can adhere to.
As the name suggests, the shot blasting unit is connected to a large vacuum which collects all the dust & debris produced by the process. Once the area has been prepared, we then go over it with a magnetic roller to ensure all the metal beads have been removed before painting. This means that vacuum shot blasting is not a messy process and can even be undertaken in food processing areas.
