What is Shot Blasting?

Steel Shotblasting is the preferred method of mechanical preparation that cleans and profiles simultaneously. Shot Blasting strips thin coatings, removes contamination and laitance (soft concrete) to reveal a mechanical profile for improved bonding. This method is achieved by blasting a concrete surface with steel shot (small steel balls) at a high velocity. It is suitable for large and small areas. Shot Blasting delivers high production rates, dust free, dry and cost-effective. Excess shot must be swept-up after blasting and any dust is recovered by a powerful dust collection system.

Advantages of Shot Blasting

Steel Shotblasting is the method of surface preparation recommended by most coating manufacturers and floor preparation contractors.

Shot Blasting eliminates the use of expensive, non-eco friendly, harsh chemicals (muratic acid) and leaves the concrete floor with the desired profile without any chemical residue or time consuming cleanup.

Shot Blasting is known for high production rates, wide abrasive selection and blast pattern accuracy.

Shot Blasting lends itself to efficient disposal of dust and other contaminants.

Shot Blasting can be performed outdoors and indoors.

Shot Blasting can be accomplished with a ride-on, diesel-powered machine or a walk-behind, electric powered machine.

Industry guidelines for creating surface profiles

The International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI)
has created a technical guideline #03732,
“Selecting and specifying concrete surface preparation for sealers, coatings, and polymer overlays.”
This guideline provides concrete surface profiles of CSP 3 to 9 which are used under the following conditions.

• For coating applications from 4–5 mils in thickness, the surface profile shall be a CSP 3.
This is known as a light shotblast.

• For coating applications from 15–50 mils in thickness, the surface profile shall be a CSP 4
or 5. This is known as a medium shotblast.

• For coating applications from 40 mils to 1/8" in thickness, the surface profile shall be a CSP 5
or 6. This is known as a medium-heavy shotblast.

• For topping applications from ¼" to ½", the
surface profile shall be a CSP 6 or 7. This is
known as a heavy shotblast.

• For concrete overlays greater than ½", the
surface profile shall be a CSP 8 or 9. This is
known as an extreme shotblast.

BW Manufacturing SCB-1200 Shot Blaster w/ Blast HeadBW Manufacturing SCB-1200 Shot Blaster w/ Blast Head

The SCB-1200 features a removable dust containment box with wheels for ease of dumping. One handed operation controls for raising and lowering heads, speed and shot control. A state of the art blast head design allowing you quick blast wheel changes and a feathered blasting edge, which enables each successive path to overlap without excessive penetration omitting the "striping effect". The finished surface is ideal for thin-set applications or for use with clear coatings along with the power to give you an aggressive shot blast profile when needed. The SCB 1200 comes equipped with the B-1200 Blast Head. The optional accessory attachments are the SC-1200 Scarifying Head and the DG-1225 Diamond Grinding Head complete with diamonds.

After years of research, development and testing, B W Manufacturing, Inc. has produced the only mid-sized ride on shotblast/scarifying machine in the market today. The SCB-1200 gives you mobility and versatility by being able to switch back and forth between blasting, scarifying, and diamond grinding/polishing in just minutes.
