How Does Dustless Blasting Work?
Wet abrasive blasting works by blasting waster mist vapour out of the blasting nozzle along with the chosen abrasive being used.
Each granule of blasting media is encapsulated in a water barrier film.
When the abrasive hits the substrate, the abrasive does its job as the water barrier opens, both washing the substrate and suppressing what would otherwise be dry abrasive disintegrating and causing airborne fine dust as well as any dust created by the material on the surface also being disintegrated, such as rust or concrete laitance.
When it comes to different surfaces, paint is used primarily as a protective coating to extend the life of the surface underneath as well as beautifying.
Paint eventually fails - generally sooner than necessary due to insufficient surface preparation - causing peeling, cracking, crazing, bubbles, delamination, etc.
This leaves the substrate it is applied to open to degradation in the form of rust, rotting, oxidisation, discolouration and chemical attack and more.
However, dustless blasting can remove what is left of the old coating and rust, as quickly and efficiently as possible.
The result is a clean surface that is ready for your new design and a brand new application that will last the distance.
