About Us

Company Overview

Blastrac® is the global leader in portable surface preparation technologies and equipment.  We develop and manufacture environmentally safe shot blasting, grinding, polishing, scarifying, scraping and milling equipment. Blastrac equipment and systems have become the industry standard and are designed for surface preparation of asphalt roads and runways, concrete, steel, brick, stone, and other substrates in industrial, commercial and residential settings. 

Our History

Blastrac began in the early 1970s when centrifugal wheelblast (shot blast) cleaning technology was configured as a portable system for ship deck applications. Early systems were developed for non-skid removal on aircraft carrier flight decks and cleaning airport runways. Blastrac emerged an industry leader and an extensive line of systems followed in later years and was quickly adopted by industrial coating and commercial painting and flooring contractors as a preferred option over chemical stripping and open blasting. Blastrac is proud to have become the preferred brand sought by professional contractors for portable shot blast cleaning.
