Reduce Variables And Liabilities

Increase asset life and the time between shutdowns. Alleviate community concerns and optimize strategic asset management. Sponge-Jet technology replaces disruptive surface preparation practices, reducing up to 30% of shut-down time – while increasing coating life. Ultimately one can extend both operational status and maintain asset value. Non-invasive Sponge Blasting technology allows:

  • Most preparation and coating work to be achieved during regular operations (leaving shutdowns free for other trades)
  • Management to improve, predict and control their operational schedules
  • Management to eliminate community environmental concerns by reducing hazardous fugitive emissions

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.
