As a local Tasmanian business based in Hobart we are here to look after your blasting and protective equipment coating needs. We recognise the importance of ensuring that the substrate is prepared to exceed or meet the specification, moisture has been removed, the substrate is stable and profile of the substrate meets the specifications from the coating manufacturer.


We take occupational health and safety very seriously and are leading the industry in protection from silica dust inhalation. We have invested heavily in silica dust protection which includes air purifiers, silica approved vacuum cleaners, and equipment that all include dust collection.  This is to protect our staff on the job and also others who we share work sites with.  We also have a wearable silica dust detector so we can keep a check on silica dust air contamination while we work.  We have had major work sites also tested by Hobart City Council with favourable results.

  • Steel grit, a cost-effective general-purpose media. Typically used for, steel fabrication, gates railings, casting and cast-iron outdoor furniture.
  • Garnet is available in various grades and is used on steel or at a low pressure for more delicate items or jobs which require a smoother finish. These include car panels, truck chassis, sheet metal, glass, aluminum and concrete etching as well as general blasting work.
  • Soda blasting is available on request for car panels, glass, plastic and surface cleaning without creating a profile.
