Profile Measurement

BlastOne offers multiple tools that take different approaches to measure the profile of a blasted steel surface. They are simple to use and require minimal or straightforward calibration for accuracy.

These profile measurement tools are able to detect the profile achieved on a newly-blasted surface. Typically, these profile measurements (measured in mils) are specified by the coating manufacturer.

Producing the proper surface profile on a blasted metal surface is important with corrosion control process because it ensures the protective coating’s longevity on structural steel.

If the surface profile doesn’t have an adequate peak-valley height, it may not be able to provide a proper anchor for the coating. This can cause the coating to bubble up or fail prematurely. If there is too large a profile (higher peaks and lower valleys on the steel surface), it will require a greater amount of paint to cover the surface without any noticeable roughness.
