Superior Preparation — Increases Coating Life

According to the National Association of Corrosion Engineers 75% of coating failures are the result of improper surface preparation. Sponge Blasting allows professionals to achieve optimum surface preparation, increase adhesion and extend coating life.

The dry, low dust, no ricochet characteristics of Sponge Media provides the freedom to specify a perfect white metal blast in all areas where:

  • Power tools are required
  • Electrical or rotating equipment is present
  • Adjacent surfaces can be damaged from ricochet
  • Visibility during blasting is desired

Testimonials

“We can achieve a better job quality with this technology that profiles up to (100 microns) 4 mils and equivalents to any cleanliness level, commercial gray, near-white or white metal – achieving all required cleaning standards.” - Ecopetrol S.A.

  • 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.
