Vapor Assisted Sandblasting
“On time. Professional and did a great job
—Facility maintenance company
As time has progressed, so has the technology of blasting. K-Clean USA utilizes the latest & greatest in blasting technology, including vapor assisted sandblasting. This unique process has been widely used by K-Clean USA on surfaces in such industries as:
- Ship yards
- Machine shops
- Manufacturing facilities
- Metal structures
- Concrete tilt-ups
- Parking garages
Vapor assisted blasting has a couple key benefits over the traditional, old-school sandblasting method:
- Only uses 10% of the blasting media vs. the traditional dry sand blasting method
- Clean up takes only a fraction of the time since containment & the amount of media used is significantly lower
Sandblasting is one of the oldest and most widely-used methods for heavy-duty cleaning. Invented in the late 1800’s, this process involves using pressurized air to propel grains of sand in a fine stream at high speeds. Sandblasting is used for all kinds of applications, most commonly for removing paint and heavy contaminants from metal and concrete surfaces. These same principles apply when using our vapor assisted sand blasting method, only at a lower cost since media & clean-up costs are minimal.
As vapor assisted sandblasting has become more commonly used, it has also been significantly improved to address safety concerns. When K-Clean USA performs vapor assisted sandblasting services, we make sure to follow all appropriate industry standards and government regulations. We use the best silicate materials, dust collectors, breathing protection and protective clothing to ensure a safe environment for all involved.
Vapor assisted sandblasting can be used to etch smooth surfaces, allowing new paint to adhere effectively. It is also used to remove dirt, oil and other unwanted residue from all kinds of interior & exterior surfaces, leaving a clean, serviceable substrate for the next coat of paint or whatever the next step in your process may be.
