Reduced Hazardous Waste Material
Plastic media blasting uses soft plastic medium applied at low pressure to strip and prepare surfaces, producing less hazardous waste material compared to conventional abrasive blasting. Ventilation requirements are not as strict so the plastic media room can function as a fully contained unit.
Plastic media is lighter in mass than conventional abrasive blasting media, which allows it to be applied at a higher velocity rate than other methods, making for very quick work.
Less Damage to Equipment
The low pressure application of plastic media blasting means that you can perform stripping of equipment without damaging the surface beneath the paint. Softer materials such as wax, coatings, sealants and adhesives can be easily removed without damaging plastic surfaces.
