Nothing eliminates corrosion and prepares steel and cementitious substrates like Sponge-Jet. Whether by its two-part cleaning/profiling process, its ability to reduce harmful abrasive rebound, or its built-in dust-suppressing characteristics, corrosion professionals around the world who want to get it right the first time and without collateral damage to surrounding assets use Sponge-Jet.
Getting it right means high-quality, clean substrates that can maximize protective coating life, and reduce repetitive and costly maintenance cycles. On your next job, contain and compartmentalize surface preparation operations and reduce interruption to surrounding trades and other critical water/waste processing.
Use Sponge-Jet on:
Don’t wait to try Sponge-Jet on your next project. It could yield faster turnaround, longer lasting coatings and less headaches compared to ordinary abrasives.
Sponge-Jet was used for low dust surface preparation in water softener tanks at Chevron after officials reported unacceptable levels of dust (causing electronic reading malfunctions) caused by ordinary abrasives.
With risk of environmental contamination and health and safety, Sponge-Jet successfully helped remediate failing lead paint on the exterior of Toa Baja water tank with a public library and school on one side and a church on the other.
Severe pipe coating failure in the digester building. Sponge-Jet removed failed top-coat and coal tar base with no shut down permitted and 24/7 operation; NACE quality assurance inspector approved, with more work to follow.
Sponge-Jet was used on exterior water pipes to remove failed coating system and was uniquely qualified where the pipe network had sensitive meters and gauges; concern with grit intrusion was expressed and remained a nonissue. One engineer responded, "moving forward LUS has mandated that contractors use Sponge-Jet for upcoming... projects."
Sponge-Jet is commonly used for lead paint abatement and while doing so, it helps better contain dust. Four Silver Star Painting stripped 200,000 ft² of toxic lead paint during the day - and without shutting down operations.
