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.
