The Bristle Blaster can often be used on small preparation jobs where conventional sandblasting is not viable. A profile of up to 75 microns can be achieved. The Bristle Blaster can be used without disrupting other trades or processes. The pneumatic Bristle Blaster includes a dust extraction attachment, often eliminating the need for encapsulation.
The bristle tips are designed to strike the corroded surface with kinetic energy that is equivalent to standard processes that use grit blast media. Immediately after the bristle tips strike the surface, they retract (“rebound”) from the surface, which results in both corrosion removal and micro-indentation that exposes fresh surface.
Consequently, surfaces that have been treated by Bristle Blasting have a texture and visual cleanliness that mimics those obtained by traditional grit blasting processes.
