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] significant advantage is that other trades can work in the near vicinity of the Sponge-Jet blasting operation without having any safety concerns." - Managing Director, Favcote Pty. Ltd.
