A: How do you apply zinc protection?
Symet, Inc. applies zinc-rich primers immediately after abrasive blasting. This application provides cathodic corrosion protection to the underlying steel. Symet Inc. does not hot dip galvanize steel parts. Our experienced zinc painters use organic and inorganic zinc primers for outstanding galvanic protection for your steel products.
A: What do you use for abrasive blasting?
Our abrasive blasting service utilizes a wide variety of abrasive media carefully selected for your particular blasting job. Symet, Inc. chooses sand for most abrasive blasting projects, and we also use glass beads, coal slag grit or even walnut shell depending on the task at hand.

Symet, Inc. works exclusively with liquid paints and applies durable protective coats using airless and conventional spraying methods.
