Well the day has finally come….. K Blasting Ltd is moving premises 01/08/20022

We are moving to :-

Maddacombe Farm


Newton Abbot


TQ12 5LF

Its been a pleasure to work in the premises that our parents, Peter and Beverly Kay, started K Blasting back in 1990.

It has been a rollercoaster of emotions, reminiscing of all the good and bad times whilst being in the Galmpton quarry.

But now we look forward to our new adventure!!!!



This week has been
Landrover madness.

We have blast cleaned two long wheelbase and one shortwheel base chassis ready to be hot dip galvanised.
By blast cleaning we have removed all the paint and rust ready to give the galvanising the best possible chance. The galvanising will give maximum longevity and maintenance free.

One of these chassis is for our main company landrover and the other for two local friends with the same idea!

Now for the rebuild!



Cabinet Restoration – 21st Feb 2022

Recently we have lightly blast cleaned these matching pair of cabinets to remove the staining to bring them back to the bright oak underneath.

The results were extremely satisfying


Not just 1 motor bike but 5 motorbike restorations all at the same time for 1 person… WOW

A Friend popped by to have several motorbike fuel tanks and various other parts blast cleaned ready to be restored and repainted

What better preparation can you get than blast cleaning to remove the filler, years of paint and rust for the ultimate finish?











Yesterday, K Blasting was asked to blast clean this old Triumph Stag.

As can be seen from the pictures this has been stripped back to the bare metal and extra care has been taken around the body panels to avoid any warping.

All ready now for the body work repairs to start.


Well its a shame we didn’t take some before pictures of these alloy wheels.

These were in extremely poor condition with corrosion and flakey paint.

By lightly glass blast cleaning them, they are now in the perfect condition and texture to apply new coatings. With a slight profile to the aluminum, this will allow the new  coatings to bond extremely well.

We lightly blast cleaned this Rib to remove the antifouling ready for a new paint application.
By using our blast cleaning method, not only does it remove the antifoul but gives the perfect abrasion for the coatings to bond to.
The results were outstanding and another happy customer for K Blasting.

Wooden Bench Renovation – 30/7/21

This week  we decided to try some light blast cleaning tests on different wooden items we had in the yard to find out what would give great results and what wouldn’t.

We were extremely happy with how this old bench cleaned up. By blast cleaning the wood lightly really has brought the bench back to life ready to be used again.

Todays customer at Dolphin Haven needed his keel blast cleaned back to bare steel. This keel had already been blast cleaned and fresh water washed and is now in need of a quick sweep blast ready for the high build epoxy coatings to be applied. This process of blast clean, wash, blast clean again, ensures there are no salts trapped in the steel before the coatings are applied. Only the best preparation can be expected by K Blasting Ltd.



The keel has been sheeted well to prevent the used grit and debris drifting around the boat yard.


The keel is in a sorry rusty state ready to be blast cleaned back to bare metal.


And after K Blasting has worked their magic, the keel is now ready to be coated with a marine grade epoxy primer.

Last week, K Blasting and the team were catching up with some smaller “In house” jobs. This consisted of garden furniture, gates and railings, vintage tractor parts and vintage car parts.

All these items required the usual blast cleaning to remove the old coatings and corrosion ready for new coatings. More happy customers for K Blasting.





Some typical furniture that had been brought into K Blasting to be Blast cleaned to remove the rust and paint ready for some new coatings.

After being blast cleaned, this furniture has been etch primed and top coated with white gloss, for an amazing finish ready for the garden.

This anchor was brought to us in desperate need of some TLC to take pride of place as a garden ornament.



After the anchor had been blast cleaned to remove the old paint and rust, we then primed the anchor ready for the customer to apply their own paint system.

These vintage tractor parts are a small peace of someone’s restoration project needing to be blast cleaned and painted ready for reassembly for the new rally season.

After these vintage tractor parts had been blast cleaned, they were ready for a good coat of primer.

These old spoked wheels were extremely rusty and needed sprucing up ready to be refitted onto an old classic. Great results!!!
