HOW IT WORKS
- Water Surrounds the Blast Media
Blast Media coated in a water jacket by surface tension, increases speed and mass enhancing the force of impact upon the blast surface at less air pressure than conventional sandblasting.
- Blast Media Hits the Surface
Blast Media (usually Recycled Crushed Glass) hits the surface, the water continues moving but still holding onto the blast media by surface tension. The water jacket hits the surface and prevents any grit from bouncing, while eliminating up to 90 percent of the dust. (no more air born silica and lead paint dust)
- Water “Snaps” Around the Media
This “Water Jacket” snaps around the blast media into the crack under the blast surface and hydro-statically blasts a larger amount of surface coating away.
- The Result
The result is a profiled surface, feathered edges, and the most efficient use of the least amount of blast media and water. (70 % of the Blast Media compared to Sandblasting, and only 1 liter per min. of water)
