Wet Abrasive Blasting is similar to dry blasting where an abrasive media and compressed air is used to attain a desired finish on a chosen surface. However, unlike dry blasting, water is introduced into the system to enhance the levels of surface finish that can be achieved. The benefit of including water is a much smoother and more consistent finish.

Wet Abrasive Blasting Advantages:

  • 92% dust reduction over other blasting methods
  • Uses less than 2 pints of water per minute
  • Reduced containment and disposal costs
  • Environmentally friendly blast medias

Additives in mixture to prevent flash rusting up to 48 hours after blasting.

Wet blasting was developed by Norman Ashworth in the early fifties.  The introduction of water to the previously dry process, was a result of the banning of silica in sand blasting.  It quickly became clear, the benefits of wet blasting.  By lubricating the abrasive particles in a buffer of water Norman found that there was a much more even flow across the applied surface when using wet blasting systems.  This has its benefits in that less damage is incurred to the substrate and any abrasive action is consistent across the whole surface.
