What we do

JMS Lincoln is a highly successful organisation which has many years of experience providing specialist shotblasting services to a wide range of industries including Local Authorities and Highways England. Based in Lincoln UK, JMS operate all over Europe offering their experience and expertise as a specialist surface preparation and retexturing contractor able to tackle virtually any surface. Always using the very latest “hi-tech‟ dust free equipment, JMS has blasted just about every kind of surface possible. From Highways and Car Parks including Line Removal and removal of Rubber Deposits from many international airport runways to Ship Decks and Concrete Floors in warehouses.

Retexturing involves the mechanical reworking of an existing surface to improve its texture and frictional skid-resistance by improving both Micro & Macro Texture.
An array of retexturing equipment, based on techniques such as Shotblasting, High Pressure Water, diamond grinding/grooving and flailing, has evolved for improving these characteristics on HRA, SMA, porous asphalt, concrete, and other types of surfacing. The abrasive effects can also be used to accelerate the weathering of new bituminous surfaces, remove oil deposits and other contaminants.

In addition to improving road safety, the process significantly reduces the attendant resource and energy consumption of quarrying, processing and laying new surfacing, and disposing of old.

Early forms of retexturing such as hand-controlled scabblers, were labour-intensive and were typically used for surface preparation of small, isolated patches of road or bridge deck. However, the latest technology and equipment design has evolved into mobile plant capable of greater output, quality and coverage.

Advances in the computer controlled Shotblasting Process used by JMS Lincoln Ltd has helped raise the technical profile of retexturing and when utilising 2 x 2-45D Lorry Mounted Shotblasting Units, along with our specialist Surface Dryers, increases potential output to 10,000m2 per 8-hour shift. However, bearing in mind that some clients may require smaller areas treated. JMS Lincoln has extended its fleet to include 5 smaller Ride on Units.

It is the inherent simplicity of the techniques – regenerating surface skid-resistance with minimal use of energy and scarce resources – that is currently inspiring a highways industry striving for carbon reductions, tough safety targets and cost-efficiencies.

“Highway authorities are under pressure to meet tough safety and carbon reduction targets as well as potentially extending the life of existing road surfaces to make tight budgets go further. Retexturing has an important role to play as the surface treatments sector steps up to meet the safety, carbon management and cost-efficiency challenges of highways maintenance in the 21st century.”
