HMG’s state-of-the art blasting and painting enclosure is capable of handling any size job from large scale fixed plant equipment down to small components.
Abrasive blasting projects highly compressed air and an abrasive agent (steel grit, sand or powdered abrasive) at high pressure to smooth a rough surface, roughen a smooth surface or literally “blast away” any paint, dirt or surface contaminates. This preparation allows for a better application of protective coatings and paint, and is one of the most economical and effective methods of combating corrosion, chemical attack and wear.
Our large workshop allows our experienced blasters and painters to work in a controlled environment, limiting the chances of defects getting into the finished product. HMG remains at the forefront of technology and are adept at the selection and application of high performance coating systems such as polyureas, elastomers and specialist wear resistant coatings.
Our extensive range of inspection benches enables HMG to safely and efficiently disassemble and inspect your equipment. For every job, we follow a detailed disassembly, inspection and specification procedure before aligning the most appropriate engineering solution to your cost and time parameters.
