Protect Military Assets And Readiness

Subjected to the most rigorous environments, military equipment is expected to operate at top performance at all times. Corrosion prevention is a priority to maintain equipment; naval vessels, aircraft, vehicles, heavy equipment and armament. Sponge Media™ blasting can prepare most surfaces, including:

  • Advanced materials & armored plates
  • Aluminum
  • Bronze
  • Brass
  • Super duplex
  • Stainless steel
  • Composites
  • Fiberglass
  • High-strength steel and alloys

Selectively strip coatings, remove contaminants and hazardous materials from substrates without generating the excessive dust environments or ricochet damage normally encountered when rehabilitating assets. Sponge-Jet prepared surfaces optimize coating life and asset readiness.


Features & Benefits

  • Decontaminate, entrap and abate hazards
  • Simplify job staging
  • Protect integrity & reliability of equipment
  • Increase asset life and coating performance
  • Reliably schedule & budget
  • Improve worker health and safety

  • Corrosion Control with Abrasive Blasting

    Corrosion is everywhere - from a speck of rust on a bridge’s bolt to the advanced chemical erosion of a process pump, to blistering paint on a building’s structural steel, fences, and railings. When coatings fail and metal components oxidize, property and infrastructure risk further damage. Corrosion weakens metal from the outside in - untreated metal can rust away completely, leaving behind gaping holes.
