Stubborn stain? Spilled asphalt? Failed fiberglass? Bubbling epoxy? Coatings are an essential part of equipment’s longevity. They are built to last and difficult to remove. What do you do when a coating fails and needs to come off? Coldsweep offers a variety of services for difficult coating removal situations.
Dry Ice Blasting
Dry ice blasting is a unique way of removing a coating with minimal damage to the substrate. Most important, it allows you to clean while generating zero secondary waste. Dry ice is solid carbon dioxide. Therefore, when it hits the surface you’re cleaning, it instantly disappears into a gas. This was helpful when coldsweep removed lead based paint from the Utah Capitol Building. Firstly, there was nothing to clean up besides the left over paint. Second, Coldsweep cleaned delicate symbols without damaging them. In summary, dry ice blasting is an excellent method for specialized coating removal.
Coating Removal with Induction Stripping
Induction stripping offers a great solution for coating removal on steel surfaces. It allows you to dis-bond coatings up to two inches thick! This process is entirely magnetic. As a result, Coldsweep technicians can strip off a coating with zero noise and no moving parts. Technicians can work more quickly and more safely.
