Environmentally Friendly Shot Blasting by Charles Day

Considered to be an environmentally conscious alternative to traditional surface preparation methods such as sandblasting and chemical stripping, shot blasting typically generates less waste, and does not require any harmful and non-eco-friendly chemicals.

At Charles Day, we endeavour to provide an environmentally friendly alternative to metal profiling services, and aim to reduce our environmental footprint wherever possible.
