SUBSTANTIAL TIME AND COST SAVINGS

Water jetting and mechanical preparation are now
becoming more commonly employed as time and cost
saving alternatives to abrasive blasting. It is already a
necessary requirement to pressure wash surfaces exposed
to saltwater environments to remove salt as part of the
grit blasting process. Major savings can therefore be
achieved by utilising HP water jetting; preparing the surface
and removing salt and other contaminants in a single
operation.
Chemco’s innovative wet & rust tolerant technology also
enables huge savings to be made through minimising
the overall project duration and downtime. These systems
allow the coating process to begin immediately after
surface preparation on a wet substrate with no delay and
no requirement for dehumidification; unlike other moisture
tolerant systems where the substrate needs to be almost dry.

                                                                                 Abrasive blasting is a very time consuming and expensive
                                                                                 process which requires the following equipment:

                                                                     •	 High Volume Air Compressor
                                                                     •	 Blast Pot
                                                                     •	 Grit Removal
                                                                     •	 Extensive Dehumidifaction & Ventilation Equipment
                                                                     •	 High Power Supply

                                                                                 In comparison, water jetting only requires a small
                                                                                 portable water jetting machine (e.g. Den-Jet).

     HEALTH & SAFETY AND
     ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

H&S and Fire Hazard are significantly reduced by utilising
water jetting.
The process is environmentally friendly, allowing other
work in the vicinity to be carried out without disruption.
