Thorough and effective surface treatment
East Metal finishes items with the surface treatment(s) best suited to the task. These include shot blasting, metallisation, galvanising, and painting.
The iron and steel industry has traditionally used sand blasting prior to metalising or galvanizing. At East Metal we use surface blasting instead. Surface blasting or Shot blasting is a much better method, since we use small metal balls instead of grains of sand to clean the surface. This means we can avoid small fragments of sand boring into the steel and subsequently destroying the metal from within.
Galvanising and metalising
Regardless of the technology used, our processes and thorough quality control mean that we comply with the toughest requirements in the industry - DS/EN ISO 1461.
Class C5 paint coatings
We work at a high level of quality in all sub-processes. Our painting department accepts jobs right up to corrosion category C5 - M, which guarantees that the finished product has a very high standard of corrosion protection. .
