Marine Surface Preparation
KRSI offers Ultra-High Pressure (UHP) Water Blasting Systems with optional vacuum collection units and other accessories to clean or prepare many different types of surfaces.
This process, in which ultra high pressure jets (without abrasive additives) are used, removes paint, rust, primers, epoxies and other coatings from almost any surface. The process does not cause damage to the underlying facade or generate any heat or dust. It also creates a perfectly clean (free from chemicals and non-visual contamination) surface on which new coatings can be applied.
Marine vessels can be a challenge to remove coatings for some companies because they don't have the right equipment to keep the surrounding area safe. This environmentally friendly process minimizes the waste stream and creates a smooth finish. Blasting brings out the structure’s natural material profile without damaging the original surface and ensures no residual media or contaminants (e.g. chlorides, etc.) will remain.
