I need antifoul treatment for my boat
We can help our proven methods are 100% effective
Symblast’s blasting methods are fast and 100% effective. We work in harmony with boatyards and execute their work quickly and efficiently, tenting up to protect surrounding boats and leaving the perfect, clean finish ready for painting or epoxy coating.
The recent purchase of airless spray equipment now enables structures to be coated extremely quickly and accurately, heavier epoxies which used to take a long time to apply by roller can now be applied in a fraction of the time.
I have discovered Osmosis on my boat. Can you fix it?
Call us, we have the solution.
Hulls are gel peeled to remove the old worn-out gelcoat along with a small amount of laminate (very few boats require relaminating as hardly any laminate is removed), this is then grit blasted to allow trapped salts (or osmotic fluid) to be removed by subsequent steam or pressure washing. Once dry the hulls are rebuilt using pure solvent-free epoxy and this is applied by roller and ‘bladed’ smooth as can be seen-this eliminates the need for filler and excessive sanding. To date, we have never had a rebuild go wrong!
I need new Osmosis treatment for my boat, is this something you can do?
Yes, we can treat or repair
Our proven method to date has had zero failures, the hull is gel peeled to expose the laminate and then blasted to open the laminate to allow trapped osmotic fluid to be washed out by steam or normal pressure washing, once dry the hull can then be rebuilt using solvent free epoxy which is applied by roller then ‘bladed’ smooth to achieve a glass smooth finish that is impervious to water
I need a low maintenance hull, do you apply Coppercoat?
We do, and you can look forward to low maintenace sailing
Copper Coating can literally save you years of mess, inconvenience and expense whilst seriously safeguarding your investment against the elements. Call us if you Like the thought of not having to do any more than pressure wash your boat for the next 10 to15 years.
I have new green oak that has unsightly black saw marks can you help remove them?
Yes, we can take care of that for you
Using a special dry abrasive the wood is revitalised and some people like their timbers blasted to ‘distress’ and expose the grain, Symblast have over the years blasted many oak frame buildings to achieve precisely this result.
I have some steel or iron that is rusty and covered in old paint. Can you remove it?
Absolutely, we can handle it big or small
Grit blasting will remove all old paint and rust bringing the metal to a condition whereby paint can be applied, whether it be the beams of a building such as a barn, old window frames or lamp posts we have the experience and capability of handling your project whether big or small.
I need to remove old paintwork from a brick wall without damaging the brick?
We can help, but we need to check your bricks.
Blasting old paint from a building or brickwork can be very rewarding as the colour and texture of the brick emerges after years of being covered, it is important though that the underlying brick is not softer than the old paint otherwise blasting may not be the answer!
For some years now Symblast has worked with Jason Pillar Classic Cars, and the results have been impressive and enjoyable! Using a specially made rotisserie, the car body shells are able to be rolled to allow blasting access to all areas, then Jason does the welding and rebuilding. We can help with your project.
