CSC Services are an experienced specialist blasting and painting company. Our team are trained in the safe use of portable blasting systems and are also trained members of the water jetting association. We use a range of blasting systems including:

Pipework blasting is used to remove rust, failed coatings, flaking paints and contaminants. The blasting will also prepare the pipe work to be re coated by re profiling the surface. This leaves a good mechanical key in which the new primer or coating can bond to. The minimum standard of blast cleaning to receive coatings is SA21/2.

There are many types of abrasive blast media on the market, such as:

  • Traditional silicon carbide
  • Glass beads
  • Plastic media
  • Copper, Aluminium, Brass
  • Cut wire
  • Garnet
  • Ceramics

For sensitive blast cleaning work, granulated shells and kernels can be used.

As a blasting and painting company we have a large range of paints, epoxy resin paints and polyurea/polyurethane coatings for many different applications.

Offsite Pipework Blasting

CSC Services can now blast pipework at its specialist unit in the North East. Pipes of up to 3m wide can be forklifted in and out of the specialist unit. Offsite work is useful when the pipework to be blasted is situated in a sensitive area. By taking structures offsite for refurbishment work, day to day operations can continue.

Our teams all have CSCS cards, EUSR Water cards, DOMS, Confined Space Certificates and are BSVR (Baseline Security Vetting Register) and CTC (counter terrorism check) vetted as a minimum. All operatives hold SSPC Train the Painter – Gold level accreditation which covers protective coating application, spray painting and abrasive blast cleaning.
