Shipyards

Improved Cleaning Performance:
Ervin Amasteel abrasive is the right solution for efficient surface preparation in Shipyard applications. Ervin works with its Customers to ensure that processes benefit from our consistent and trusted durability, consistently delivering right first time.

Air Blasting:
Our grit products, and particularly our Ferroblast range, are proving popular with Customers requiring to Air Blast and who are conscious of the potential hazards caused by dust emissions when using some other blasting media.

Machine Blasting/Blast Rooms:
The ability of Ervin material to transmit energy, and its class-leading performance in terms of coverage when shotblasting steel, ensures that the most complex of shapes can be quickly treated.

Reduced Abrasive Consumption:
Ervin Amasteel has been perfecting the process for the production of steel abrasives for many decades. The durability of our product is tested and confirmed daily across the world. So Customers find that Ervin material typically lasts longer, leading to a reduction in the volume of abrasive consumed in their processes.

Improved Surface Profile:
Ervin Amasteel abrasive consistently delivers the profile Customers need to ensure that subsequent coating processes provide an optimized mix of cost and performance.

Reduced Process Costs:
In tests carried out under laboratory conditions, Ervin Amasteel abrasive blast media outperforms other equivalent products in terms of the energy that it transmits to the target surface. This increased efficiency leads to reduced blasting process cycle times.

Reduced Power Consumption:
In objective comparative trials carried out in the Ervin laboratory, Amasteel abrasive outperforms other equivalent products by its ability to continue rebounding within the blast machine where competitor material has turned to dust. So for each throw of the wheel, the abrasive makes more contact and works harder. The potential power savings can be significant when compared with other abrasives.
