compressor in our fully self-contained system. Air pressures as low as 28 psi can effectively remove many coatings. Lower air pressures combined with water greatly reduces the need for major containment, reducing clean up time at your site.
Clean water is supplied from our mobile on board tanks. The water suspends the medium in the cleaning
To prevent flash rusting on metal surfaces, an organic, non-hazardous, biodegradable additive called HoldTight 102 is added to the water during the blasting and wash down process. The surface is then blown dry and ready to be recoated with no additional surface preparation required. This additive allows our customers 48 to 96 hours (depending on weather conditions) to coat the surface.
The HoldTight 102 product is approved by all the major paint and coating manufacturers.
Our solution is simple...
Mobility and Versatility. Today's blasting industry is slowly being confined to indoor commercial blasting booths to meet air quality and environmental restrictions. However, many objects that need cleaning are permanently fixed and/or too large to fit into a booth. Our mobile system solves these issues by coming to your location. We provide an efficient, dustless option for your cleaning and stripping projects.

stream reducing airborn particles by 95%
during cleaning. Water consumption is very low. Typically less than one quart per minute.
Unlike Dry Abrasive Blasting, Wet Blasting (also known as vapor, slurry or hydro blasting) is dustless. Wet Blasting uses lower air pressure, heat, water and media to clean and strip surfaces. A chemical free, highly controlled cleaning stream significantly reduces or eliminates airborne particle dispersal by 95%. Capital Wetblasting has chosen Wet Blasting for that reason. We can work on sites where conventional Dry Abrasive Blasting can not.
Very fine medias can be used for very delicate surfaces and substrates or the system can be adjusted to accommodate tough industrial coatings as with Dry Blasting. Wet Blasting also creates no heat at the point of impact, which eliminates part warping.
Abrasive Dry Blasting systems work by hammering hard particles against the coating and substrate (up to 140 PSI) until the coating (and the abrasive) is pulverized and dispersed into the air. This high pressure destruction can actually damage a portion of the substrate in order to remove the coating. Friction at the surface also creates heat which can warp metals. It creates worker hazards and raises clouds of dust and contaminants that may require expensive containment. Without containment, high pressure Dry Abrasive Blasting can also create extensive clean up issues.
