Vapour blasting works by mixing water and abrasive together instead of just the abrasive. By introducing water to the blasting procedure, the 'dust' particles created from the abrasive hitting the surface are weighed down and keeps it on the ground instead of in the open air.
This service is most often chosen for areas where a large amount of dust is undesirable. For example, removing paint from bricks/wood inside a building or outside in a public area where dust can create problems.
When this service is required for blasting steel, we add a specially formulated rust inhibitor that can prevent flash rust for up to 72 hours in *perfect conditions. After the steel has been vapour blasted and dried, the surface is ready for paint.
Sometimes the traditional way of blasting is more convenient and more applicable in certain jobs as you are able to get it coated immediately after blasting. Also something to keep in mind is that dry abrasive blasting can save time because the cleanup can often be quicker than other methods.
Our team uses proper equipment and personal protective gear to best optimize speed and quality output. They are experienced to get the job done right and professionally none the less.
