This 480-volt 3-phase vacuumized dustless Shot Blast unit can effectively remove some mastics and thin-film coatings, but is primarily used with various size steel shot (BB’s) to clean and profile the surface of the concrete to create a sandpaper finish to which ANY coating will bond tenaciously. We have eight (8) of these units in our arsenal. We always have two complete shot blast units on every job. If one breaks down, we have a back-up.
