Shot Blasting and Concrete Prep Services

We provide a wide variety of commercial concrete surface preparation services including:

Shot Blasting
Shot Blasting is a dust free method of removing contaminants such as carpet glues, tile glues, mortar beds and profiling the concrete to accept new coatings or other types of floor covering materials. In order for a new coating or overlay to bond properly, the concrete must be clean and have a surface the consistency of 80 grit sand paper. Shot blasting is the most widely recognized and accepted method for concrete preparation in the industry.

Diamond Grinding
Diamond grinding is a great alternative to shot blasting when a coating needs to be scuffed or removed prior to new coating application without damaging the top layer of concrete. Diamond grinding is also a great method of glue and mortar bed removal. Various levels of profile can be achieved with the use of more course or fine diamond tooling. Specialty Coatings has both Planetary and Terrazzo type grinding equipment available for your application.

Floor Covering Removal
Using our Blastrac BMS-270, Specialty Coatings can make short work of floor coverings such as VCT tile, carpet, sheet vinyl, ceramic tile, marble, terrazzo, hardwood, epoxy coatings and membranes. The BMS-270 can remove several thousand square feet of floor coverings a day which keeps you on schedule and saves time and money over manual removal options.
