Surface Preparation


Removing rust, scale and coatings with grit blasting requires containment and/or clean-up, and those costs can have a significant impact on profitability. For contractors doing environmental remediation – removing asbestos or lead paint, for example – the containment issue is even more critical.


A HydroPrep water jetting system with vacuum recovery needs no containment or clean-up. It works quickly and thoroughly – without harming the surface profile – and leaves a clean, dry surface that’s ready for recoating.


  • High removal rates
  • Very environmentally-friendly
  • Eliminates the cost, hazards and clean-up of grit
  • Effective on metal or concrete
  • Strips down to a white metal finish
