Abrasive Blast Cleaning

Specialist Painting Group offers an abrasive blast cleaning service utilising an array of blast medium.

Our staff are fully ICATS qualified and have a comprehensive understanding of the (BS EN ISO 8501-1) standards of steel surface preparation prior to the application of paints and related products.

We provide full independent inspection with ICORR level 2 and 3 inspectors on site. This service gives our clients extra confidence and allows us to monitor our own performance whilst allowing us to maintain a robust quality control procedure.

Abrasive blast cleaning can have an adverse effect on the environment if not contained correctly. We ensure our projects which are specified to be blast cleaned are fully encapsulated with an air tight structure and pollutants are correctly extracted and disposed of. SPG hold current waste carriers and waste producer licences.  

Our containment procedures also allow us to maintain the ambient temperature, relative humidity and steel surface temperatures within this encapsulated environment whilst providing our operatives with the correct protection from inclement weather.

Specialist Painting Group has a duty of care to all of our employees, and we take this responsibility very seriously.  We follow HSE guidelines and regularly complete the following medical surveillance.

  • Blood lead level testing - to check employees are working to the correct PPE procedures when possibly exposed to lead based coating systems
  • Lung function tests
  • Skin checks
  • Hearing checks

Working closely with the Environment Agency on all issues surrounding abrasive blast cleaning, providing our staff with the necessary training through the Industrial Applicator Training Scheme Scheme and an extensive abrasive blast cleaning portfolio means our clients can have confidence in the results that be be achieved by the Specialist Painting Group.
