The radiators are then moved into the blasting unit, where all the old built up layers of paint, any rust and corrosion are carefully removed from the outside of the radiator. The next stage is to carry out pressure testing. All radiators are tested to 4 bar, this is more than the pressure of most modern central heating systems.
If any repairs are required after sandblasting you will be contacted for approval. Should a section become damaged or a pin hole has appeared after the blasting process, sections can be quoted at the time depending on the model of radiator.This will be quoted for individually and will only be carried out with the customers approval. All fixes to radiators tested by us carry a 12 month guarantee, unless all nipples and gaskets have been replaced by us, then a 5 year guarantee applies. After testing we move the radiators along to our spray booth where we apply the first coats of primer in either light grey if the radiator is being painted or black if the radiator is being polished. All primers used are solvent based with anti corrosive properties. The last stage is to finish the radiator to the customers desired choice. That may be painted in the colour of your choice or hand polished. (hand polishing prices per section).
