How is Dustless Blasting Used?


Dustless blasting removes paint, protective coatings, as well as contaminants such as corrosion and rust from all types of structures, locations and equipment. At the same time, abrasive blasting leaves surfaces clean, contaminant free and thoroughly prepared for re-painting or re-coating.

Domestic Abrasive Blasting Applications


As well as commercial, marine and industrial applications, abrasive blasting can also be used on smaller scale projects. It is ideal for restoring and renovating jobs in a domestic setting, because of the wide variety of surfaces and structures on which it can effectively be used:


Steel

  • verandahs and carports
  • gates
  • lattice work
  • trellises
  • fences
  • sheds
  • pipes
  • staircases
  • beams

Brick

  • exterior walls
  • fences
  • rendering
  • sandstone
  • bluestone
  • limestone

Stone

  • paving stones
  • exterior walls
  • fences
  • garden statues or sculptures


Cement and concrete

  • driveways
  • patios
  • verandahs
  • architectural concrete


Wet Abrasive Blasting v Other Blasting Methods


Wet abrasive blasting is more effective, efficient, safer, and more environmentally friendly than conventional dry abrasive blasting methods (usually called dry blasting, sandblasting, grit blasting, media blasting or slurry blasting). The key reasons for this include:
  • wet abrasive blasting is fast and versatile
  • less blast material is used
  • less dust is produced
  • surfaces are profiled more effectively
  • a more efficient method of abrasive blasting
  • a safer method of abrasive blasting
