Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Dustless Blaster?
The Dustless Blaster is a machine that works by using a recycled glass media and water to remove paint, rust, ETC from virtually any surface without causing damage to the underlying surface. The water reduces heat which prevents warping and the glass will not pit a metal surface the way sand or soda will. This blaster works great....even on fiberglass or aluminum!
Are you mobile?
Yes! We are a fully mobile business servicing the Findlay, OH area and beyond.
What Kind Of Abrasive Does It Use?
The Dustless Blaster can use just about any abrasive that sinks in water and doesn’t dissolve. We use recycled glass because it is very clean, is eco-friendly, and great for a wide range of jobs. It also allows us to remain "dustless" and does not pit or cause damage to the surface being blasted.
Can The Dustless Blaster Cause Warping Like Sandblasting Can?
Warping occurs when the metal heats up due to friction from dry abrasive. The Dustless Blaster will not cause warping, because friction and heat are reduced by the water. In fact the temperature of the metal being blasted usually comes down about 10 degrees from ambient.
Will The Dustless Blaster Damage Chrome And Glass?
Glass and chrome can be damaged by any kind of abrasive blasting. You should always mask off the chrome and glass prior to blasting. We recommend you have this prep work done before we arrive in order to save us time and save you money!
Since water is used, won't it rust metal?
We use a rust inhibitor called HoldTight 102 to prevent flash rusting for up to 72 hours. This extremely effective rust inhibitor is added to the blast water to prevent flash rust during blasting, and then used to rinse after blasting is complete.
What happens to the abrasive after blasting?
The abrasive will settle on the ground beneath or very near to whatever you're blasting. If you're in a place where you need to dispose of this media, the easiest way is to spread out some plastic before you begin blasting, and roll it up after blasting.
