Surface Preparation

Description:

Seaharvest is providing the latest technology in blasting through the patented Sponge-Jet Systems. The only authorized provider in the region for such safe, efficient surface preparation technology. The heart of the Sponge-Jet system is Sponge Media. This patented technology combines the containment capability of urethane sponge and the cleaning and cutting power of conventional abrasives. The pliant nature of Sponge Media abrasives allow its particles to flatten on impact, exposing the abrasive. After leaving the surface, the media expands, creating a vacuum – entrapping most of what would normally have become airborne contaminants. This is referred to as Sponge Media’s Micro-Containment.

Advantages of using Sponge Media:

1. Lower fugitive emissions

2. Less worker exposure and fatigue

3. Less eye and other injuries

4. Enhanced visibility and first-pass quality

5. Fewer defects and rework, keeping projects on schedule

6. High-quality surface preparation in sensitive or confined areas

7. Low inbound and outbound freight

8. Less pollution, waste generation, fines and reporting

9. Improved community relations

10. The ability for other trades to work nearby

11. Less downtime, improved asset availability

12. Coatings perform longer, saving on maintenance costs

13. Easier staging, containment, ventilation and clean up

14. Less waste, disposal and material handling

15. Greater production and efficiency

16. Less liability, litigation, compliance reporting

17. Improving both environmental AND corporate efficiency

18. Increased profits and production

Range of Application:

Preparing surfaces near finished coatings, instruments and equipment.
