Abrasive Blasting Services

Gartner Coatings has a vast knowledge base when it comes to abrasive blasting. We understand the importance of matching the proper blasting media and techniques to achieve the desired results. We inventory aluminum oxide, Black Beauty, garnet, steel grit, walnut hull and glass bead to name a few.

Our Houston area facilities are fully equipped to meet your abrasive blasting service needs. However, if you require blasting or shot peening services in the field or at your facility, we can provide it.

Shot Peening Services

Our trained technicians can perform shot peening using a variety of materials such as steel, ceramic and stainless steel shot. This process is utilized on parts such as turbine blades, threads, gears and pipe. The shot peening process relieves stress, reduces corrosion cracking and can produce a non-stick surface.

Specialty Blasting Services

Gartner Coatings can take on specialty blast requirements such as glass frosting and surface conditioning for concrete, marble and granite. We can also blast most any material creating special surface effects such as texturing, shading or carving.
