Also known as dustless blasting, wet abrasive blasting, vapour honing and a few others, removes coatings, contaminants, corrosion and residues from hard surfaces. It’s similar to dry blasting, except that the blast media (abrasive) is moistened prior to impacting the surface.
A main advantage of vapour blasting over other blast systems is that it reduces dust by 92%, allowing a wide range of operating environments with minimal setup and clean-up. It results in a clean, satin finish, ready to coat, with no embedded particles or clinging dust.
Water plus abrasive are combined in a pot under water pressure, then injected into the airflow. Rust, paint, corrosion, grime comes off with no heat produced & a low pressure relative to normal abrasive blasting i.e. Sandblasting, Bead Blasting & Soda Blasting. When wet abrasive impacts a surface, fine particles are sequestered in water droplets, additional water weighs the particles down, preventing dust.
With a mobile unit the applications are endless. A range of blasting pressures & medias for the finer detail work & delicate surfaces right through to heavy industrial steel blasting. We use Garnet (rock mineral) and Glass Beads for different surfaces to achieve the desired finish, these along with the 92% reduction on airborne dust makes for an Eco-Friendly and safe solution.
Being a Self Contained Mobile Unit with up to 30m of blast hose we can restore/strip surfaces almost anywhere. Confined areas aren't an issue due to the dustless approach & simple containment/clean up. Boats, tractors, trailers, concrete / brick, houses, planes, trains and automobiles...
