The first method that Neoseal has for preparing surfaces is shot blasting. Neoseal uses a Blastrac concrete shot blast machine. This machine strips off a thin layer of coating. This process is a clean and environmentally friendly process.
The shot blasting process is a dust free process. By removing the top layer of covering and concrete the pores of the concrete are exposed. The new coatings can then work themselves into the pores of the concrete and bond with the concrete through chemical reactions. This is vital for creating a strong bond for the new surface coating provided by the Neoseal floor system.
There are a number of benefits to using the shot blasting process. Shot blasting is a dust free but dry process. The process removes old marks and or coatings on the surface. The fact that it does not use chemicals there are no chemical residues so the process is very environmentally friendly. It can be used in areas where dust or chemical wastes are prohibited.
Shot blasting can also be used in both indoor and outdoor applications.
