Abrasive Blasting

McElligotts provide comprehensive abrasive painting, sandblasting and abrasive blasting services across Australia.

Our team are qualified in abrasive blasting and protective coating application and will ensure your structure or equipment are free from grease, rust and surface contaminants with precise attention to detail. We offer on-site and off-site abrasive blasting, and our equipment allows us to clean and prepare nearly any material in any texture you desire.

Our Abrasive Blasting Capabilities:

Removing rust and contaminants is vital before abrasive painting or protective coating can be applied. Our team of certified abrasive blasters and painters have taken on all levels of corrosion across a wide array of industrial equipment and infrastructure. Depending on your environment, scale of damage and type of metal / alloy, we’ll identify the right blasting media that adequately removes rust, maintains durability, and doesn’t harm the environment.

We have robotic systems for selected abrasive blasting purposes and can source a multitude of different blasting media suited to your application. Types of blasting media and methods we use include:

  • Sand blasting
  • Steel blasting
  • Water blasting
  • Garnet blasting

In addition, we also offer ultra high-pressure cleaning if abrasion isn’t necessary to remove any surface grime and contaminants.

We can conduct abrasive blasting on site or in our specialised facilities. Plus, we have extensive experience in transporting larger items requiring off-site abrasive blasting. We’ve organised transport for everything from mining conveyor belts through to wind turbine components.

Abrasive Painting:

We can remove any rough edges and vary the grit level to get the exact surface texture you desire before adding a high quality colour of your choice. Once we’ve applied new coloured coats, we can complete the job with additional protective coatings designed to extend the life further. Our team have obtained a Cert III in Surface Preparation and Protective Coatings and are trained in a range of specialised protective coating products. This allows us to identify the right coating product for your structure and equipment in your intended environment.

McElligotts have teams in Queensland, Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales. If you require abrasive blasting, sandblasting or protective painting for your structure and equipment, please get in touch with us today.

Our friendly team will be more than happy to assist and answer any questions you may have.
