Surface Preparation is one of our specialties here are Mid Valley Industrial Surfaces. Either by traditional sand/grit blasting, dry ice blasting, or with technologically advanced UHP water jet equipment, our breadth of experience in unique surface prep applications is growing rapidly.
For some applications, albeit decreasingly, sand blasting still remains one of the best or only applications that will meet certain surface prep specifications. Using safe, non-silica based grits Mid Valley can achieve superior surface qualities in both on-site and shop applications.
With the recent advancement in technologies for both ice blasting equipment and paints & coatings, dry ice blasting is a rapidly growing option for a whole host of surface prep applications. Commonly used in conjunction with chemical cleaning and/or needle gunning, dry ice blasting is a superior application when marginally prepared surfaces are acceptable and where water & grit will simply make too big of a mess to clean up, or could injure delicate gears, bearings, or electrical equipment.
This is by far Mid Valley’s most advanced method for coatings removal and surface prep. By using state-of-the-art technologies and up to 40,000 psi water streams we can safely and cost-effectively remove coatings with highly minimized risk of environmental or human exposure to potential contaminants. In most instances, the would-be mess is cleaned during the coatings removal process, eliminating the need for large containment areas or post-construction cleaning. Call us to speak with a professional to see if UHP water jetting is an option for your next project.
Coatings manufacturers are continually coming out with advanced rust-preventers and pre-prime products that chemically bond with tightly adhered rusted surfaces. Additionally, Mid Valley has a long history in the industrial coatings industry and has developed trusting relationships with several professional painting contractors throughout the Midwest. We welcome reputable industrial painting contractors to contact us to see if fruitful partnerships can be developed.
