Efficient Control of Scheduling and Costs

Avoid surface preparation-related disruptions during rehabilitation / construction due the disruptive and dusty conditions associated with ordinary abrasive blasting. Sponge Blasting reduced dust and abrasive ricochet which allows project managers to consolidate and schedule other trades to work in close proximity; tasks normally delayed can now be accomplished simultaneously to live Sponge Blasting; the effect… shortened and simplified project schedules, and reduced costs.

  • A Guide to Removing Rubberized and Polyurea Coatings

    Typically applied thick, polyurea and rubber coatings are notoriously hard to remove. Regular abrasive blasting methods are rarely effective in removing these coatings. Abrasives like garnet and coal slag bounce off these surfaces causing them to heat and become gum-like with little removal. This burned residue should not be coated over and would normally require further surface preparation. To avoid these issues, specifiers, contractors and facility owners have three options for polyurea and rubber coating removal.

  • How to Blast Plasma Cut or Flame Hardened Steel

    Surface cleanliness and profile are the cornerstones of proper surface preparation, but those standards are not always met. Frequently, metal fabrication projects suffer from bad surface prep. When steel is cut with flame or plasma, the edges that have been cut become harder than the middle part of the steel. This creates challenges for those trying to follow coatings application best practices.
