In keeping with our dedication to quality, Hayes Manufacturing utilizes steel shot blasting and painting booths – a process that produces a much higher surface profile than silica sand. Another advantage in using steel shot over silica sand for surface preparation is its ability to be recycled, filtered and used again and again. In addition, steel shot poses no environmental hazard, while sand can be harmful to the environment when used for blasting. Hayes is profienct in spraying sub-sea applications with 2 part and 3 part epoxy paint. Hayes maintains one NACE Level II, and one NACE Level I employees on staff for inspection purposes.
