River City Power Wash now does Dustless Wet Blasting! It's the future of surface preparation. Dustless wet blasting works by mixing water and abrasive. By introducing water we’re drastically increasing mass and energy the machine is putting out, while eliminating dust. Imagine throwing a handful of dry sand, versus throwing a handful of wet sand; which one is going to have a more significant impact on the target? Not only will the wet sand hit the target harder, but it won’t disintegrate and become a cloud of dust like the dry sand will. This is the very simple principle behind Dustless Blasting.
Our Dustless Blasting system has many advantages over the old, outdated dry blasting method. Did you know that automotive body panels can be blasted while dropping the surface temperature by 10 degrees? Whereas traditional sand blasting creates heat that will easily warp body panels.
While the metal is cleaned the water is treated with a rust inhibitor to prevent flash rust. Afterwards it is coated with a rust inhibitor that allows for a few days to get you to where you are ready to get the newly cleaned surface in primer.
