Superior Preparation — Increases Coating Life

According to the NACE International 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
