Will Dustless Blasting cause warping?

    The Dustless Blaster will NOT cause warping, because friction and heat are reduced by the water. Warping occurs when the metal heats up due to friction from dry abrasive. In fact the temperature of the metal being blasted usually comes down about 10 degrees from ambient. Some people say warping can still occur regardless of temperature, we disagree. Have you ever seen a blacksmith working cold metal? With that being said, you can still bend metal by applying too much pressure, just like you could bend it with a solid object.

Will Dustless Blasting Damage chrome or glass?

    Glass and chrome can be damaged by any kind of abrasive blasting.

Since water is used, will it cause rust?

    We use a specially formulated rust inhibitor to prevent flash rust for up to 72 hours. This extremely effective rust inhibitor is added to the blast water to prevent flash rust during blasting, and then used to rinse after blasting is complete. (If you choose to paint yourself, the rust inhibitor will give you a few days to get that done)

Is blasting harmful to the environment?

    Dustless Blasting is 100% Eco Friendly. Dustless Blasting can be used to etch concrete without using acids! Chemical etching is an environmental nightmare. Our innovative and powerful blast media is 100% environmentally inert!

What is the Dustless Blaster?

    The Dustless Blaster works by mixing water and abrasive inside the tank. 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 gong to have a more significant impact on the target? Not only will the wet sand hit the target harder, but it wont disintegrate and become a cloud of dust like the dry sand will. This is the very simple principle behind Dustless Blasting.
