What is VaporBlasting?

We use an environmentally friendly, wet abrasive blasting method, which is an amazing alternative to traditional sandblasting.

Sandblasting heats up metal and warps it. The cold water we use in VaporBlasting keeps the metal cool so there's no warping during the work.

And it removes all coatings in one step so it cuts the time of the job in half. Also safe for wood, concrete etc. We can remove paint on a large job site without containment and while keeping you open and in business! We have removed parking stripes while cars are still safely parking a few feet away!

What is Wet Abrasive Blasting?

Quoted from graco.com:

Wet abrasive blasting (also known as vapor abrasive blasting) removes coatings, contaminants, corrosion and residues from hard surfaces. It’s similar to dry blasting, except that the blast media is moistened prior to impacting the surface.

The main advantage of vapor abrasive blasting over dry blasting is that it reduces dust, allowing for operators to work in a wide range of environments with minimal setup and cleanup costs. It results in a cleaner, more consistent finished, ready to coat, with no embedded particles or clinging dust.

Vapor abrasive blasting is alternatively referred to as wet blasting, wet abrasive blasting, vapor blasting, slurry blasting, wet sandblasting and dustless blasting.

How does it work?

Quoted from graco.com:

When abrasive impacts a hard surface, the particle often breaks or shatters, propelling finer particles into the air as dust, in addition to dust already present in the dry media. This impact can also cause dry sparks charged with static electricity.

When wet abrasive impacts a surface, fine particles are sequestered in water droplets. The additional water weighs the particles down, preventing dust.

The presence of water also confers more mass on the particle at impact. As the water droplet disperses, the hydrostatic force blasts away surface coating, leaving a feathered edge around the perimeter for seamless recoatings.

Is this environmentally conscience?

Yes. VaporBlasting is a new clean and green way of rust remediation, paint removal and corrosion control.

It doesn't create any mess or dust or runoff and doesn't harm the environment (or your workers!) in any way.

In some instances we even use our own well water!

Is this OSHA approved?

Yes! We know the OSHA "Respirable Crystalline Silica" rules!

Our services are safe and efficient with no toxic dust plumes. There is no need for plant shut down so workers can continue to work. We operate in a clean environment with no sparks or dust during or after our work!

Avoid regulations and hefty fines! Learn More...

Do you have the ability to finish the project after preparing the surface?

Yes, we do rust remediation, paint removal, corrosion control, surface preparation and also painting. You can check out our painting work here: HiTechPaint.com

Do you do Powder Coating?
