Sponge blasting

Would you like to coat a surface such as floors or walls? It’s important to clean, sand and remove any rust from the substrate in preparation. This used to be done using water- or sandblasting techniques, but these days it is more frequently done using sponge blasting. This method is more sustainable and better for the environment.

ToCoat is specialised in sponge blasting, because a well-prepared surface is half the work when it comes to coating.

What’s sponge coating?

ToCoat uses sponge-jet technology. Tiny sponges are blasted at a surface, releasing aluminium oxide as they are flattened when they hit, abrading the surface. The sponges then return to their original shape and absorb the dust that gets released. The sponges don’t bounce back, they simply fall down. There is barely any bounce-back with sponge blasting, and there is a lot less dust. The dust does not fall back down on the surface. Nor does the dust that’s released affect the surface in any way, which often happens with other blasting techniques.

Sustainability

Sponge blasting has other advantages because it’s also very durable. The sponges are collected and recycled after use. About 95% gets recycled.

Application

Sponge blasting is a productive, flexible, user- and environmentally friendly solution for every industry and application. Is also used to clean surfaces, for example, it is perfect to remove unwanted graffiti.

Sponge blasting offers an ideal solution for:

 

  • Space- and aviation industries
  • Construction and maintenance of bridges
  • Restoration after fire
  • Historic restorations
  • Removal of lead
  • Maritime industries
  • Military industries

These are the advantages of a sponge blasting:

 

  • Clean process: adjoining production processes are not interrupted
  • Sustainable: sponges are recycled up to 20 times
  • There is very little dust during the blasting process
  • Applicable for fine as well as aggressive cleaning
  • Better adhesion: coatings will last longer
  • No need to protect surrounding items and surfaces
