Water-sandblasting: low pressure, maximum effect

Question: When is it practical to use water-sandblasting?

Answered by our Service Manager:

In water-sandblasting, cleaning is carried out with the aid of tiny, accelerated particles, which means that sensitive surfaces should not be treated.

In all other cases, water-sandblasting has a clear advantage, because the cleaning effect is intensified by the abrasives used to remove the unwanted material.

The principle is basically the same as in sandblasting, but with the advantage that, in water-sandblasting, no dust develops and the material is bound by the water and washed away.

In addition, the abrasive can be varied to achieve different results, e.g. a hard-edged blasting medium, such as slag, makes for a deep, coarse surface structure, while abrasives with a rounded surface, such as quartz sand, make for a fine surface structure. This means you always get optimum results.

Water-sandblasting is particularly suitable for surface preparation or for rapid, simple and efficient paint removal. All in all, in comparison with pure water-jetting, the same – if not better – results can be achieved, but using roughly half as much pressure.
