White Metal Blasting

White Metal Blasting the ideal pre-treatment for steel surfaces

White Metal Blasting (SSPC-SP5) will remove all coatings, mill scale, rust, oxides, corrosion products, and most all other foreign products from a steel surface and leaving the metal uniformly white or gray in appearance.

SSPC-SP5 is the ultimate in blast cleaning and the ideal pre-treatment for all types of plating and coatings. Used in industries where maximum performance of protective coatings is necessary due to exceptionally severe conditions such as constant immersion in water or liquid chemicals.


ECTX has two large blast rooms to accommodate customer requirements. Call for details.
