Wet blasting or vapour blasting is often the ideal solution where dust or debris in the atmosphere is prohibited. Using wet abrasive media blasting, VariBlast can achieve the same standard of surface preparation as dry blasting, without impact on the immediate atmosphere and surroundings.

Working within project constraints often presents numerous difficulties so when dust and debris in the atmosphere is prohibited, what’s the ideal solution?

Our wet blasting services provide a clean, dustless blasting solution for projects where environmental impact is a concern and the use of a dust suppressing blasting service is a determining factor.

VariBlast has experience of providing blasting services on a range of large scale projects, ranging from industrial factories, aircraft hangars, commercial buildings and residential developments.

Unparalleled cleaning power

We use our knowledge and experience in industrial blasting to combine the most efficient mixture of water and blast media to provide the perfect cleaning solution for the task in hand.

For tasks where minimal damage to the underlying material is essential and a dust suppressant is also required, wet blasting provides the very best levels of control and abrasion.

Process residue and waste management

If environmental impact is a major constraint for your project, the VariBlast wet blasting process manages the residue created and allows for the removal of all the residue to comply with any waste management policies or agreements stipulated in your contract.

Alternative systems are available

If an alternative method is more suitable, VariBlast is fully accredited with Stone Health to operate the TORC Wet Blasting system, which equally delivers excellent results but uses a different technique. We will always recommend and advise on the best cleaning system for a project, once we have made a site visit.

If necessary, we can arrange a visit to your site to demonstrate the capabilities and uses of our wet blasting system. We always recommend our clients meet with us to discuss all the details of their project so we can provide them with a competitive and accurate price.
