Media Blasting

Proficient Powder Coatings offers industry-leading media blasting services to prepare surfaces for refinishing, including powder coating. Our three-step process, encompassing degreasing, blasting, and outgassing, ensures that your surfaces are thoroughly and professionally prepared for the finishing touches.

What is Media Blasting?

Media Blasting, also known as sandblasting, is a critical process that we offer at Proficient Powder Coatings to efficiently prepare surfaces for refinishing or other applications. Our state-of-the-art equipment, specialized in this industry, combines abrasive media, compressed air, and a powder coat gun to achieve exceptional results. Media blasting is the most effective method for removing debris from surfaces, making them ready for powder coating or other finishing techniques.

Surface Restoration

Media blasting is an excellent choice for restoring surfaces that have deteriorated over time due to corrosion, rust, or old coatings. It can efficiently remove these unwanted layers and restore the original surface to its intended condition, extending the lifespan of the material.


Media blasting is effective at cleaning surfaces contaminated with dirt, grease, grime, mold, or other unwanted substances. It can be used in industrial settings, construction projects, and restoration efforts to achieve thorough and efficient cleaning.

Coating Preparation

When you need to apply new coatings, paints, or finishes to a surface, media blasting provides a superior level of surface preparation. By removing contaminants and creating a clean, roughened surface, it enhances the adhesion of coatings, ensuring a more durable and long-lasting finish.

Versatility and Precision

Media blasting is highly adaptable, as it allows for the customization of abrasive materials, pressure levels, and nozzle configurations to suit the specific requirements of a project. This versatility ensures that you can achieve precise results while controlling the depth and texture of material removal.

Our Three-Step Media Blasting Process

Step 1 – Degreasing the Surface

Before embarking on the media blasting process, the first crucial step is to degrease the surface. Most products contain oils and grease on their surfaces, which can hinder the effectiveness of media blasting and the subsequent powder coating. By thoroughly washing and cleaning the item, we remove these oils and greases, ensuring that the media blasting process can be carried out with optimal efficiency and effectiveness.

Step 2 – Blasting the Surface

Media blasting involves utilizing a high-pressure blast pot to eliminate all residues and contaminants from the surface of the item. This abrasive process prepares the surface by creating an ideal environment for proper adhesion during subsequent finishing applications, such as powder coating. It effectively removes rust, paint, scale, and other imperfections, leaving a clean and pristine surface.

Step 3 – Outgassing

The final step in our media blasting process is outgassing. This crucial step involves heating the parts to eliminate any remaining contaminants. When the item is heated to a higher temperature, any gases or volatile compounds are released before the powder coating process. Failure to outgas the item properly can result in the formation of bubbles or defects in the final powder coating finish. Our meticulous approach ensures that the surface is thoroughly prepared, and the subsequent coating application is flawless.

Media Blasting

Media stripping services are valued for their ability to efficiently restore and prepare surfaces for various applications, but it’s crucial to adhere to safety measures and environmental regulations to ensure safe and responsible use.

Efficient Surface Preparation

Media blasting efficiently and effectively removes contaminants, rust, and imperfections from surfaces, ensuring they are ready for refinishing.

Enhanced Adhesion

Proper surface preparation through media blasting promotes strong adhesion, guaranteeing the longevity and durability of the finishing coatings.

Defect-Free Finishes

The elimination of contaminants and outgassing reduces the risk of defects, such as bubbles, in the final powder coating finish.

Professional Expertise

Our experienced team is well-versed in media blasting techniques, ensuring consistent and exceptional results.
