When tackling removal of coatings from brick, wood, and metal surfaces, one of the most challenging materials to remove is lead-based paint. In addition to being difficult to extract, lead-based materials can be hazardous if inhaled or ingested.
A growing number of contractors are turning to wet and Vapor Abrasive blasting to remove lead-based paint and other coatings. Vapor Abrasive blasting systems combine water and abrasive media in a pot under pressure, then inject the mixture into an airstream, providing a precisely controlled system to remove materials resistant to other measures. Not only does the Vapor Abrasive method generate less dust than dry blasting, but it uses far less water than traditional wet blasting systems, minimizing the slurry messes they often leave behind. This helps minimize containment and cleanup work in the surrounding area.
