Wet Abrasive Blasting

Wet abrasive blasting in Cairns

Sandblasting concrete — Wet blasting Cairns in Cairns, QLD
Auswide Blast Cleaning Services offers affordable, on-site wet abrasive blasting services to locals in Far North Queensland.

Also known as dustless blasting, it has similar applications to sandblasting, but with the added benefit of creating less dust because the abrasive media is suspended in water. This not only cuts down on clean up, it means the process is far less environmentally invasive than dry abrasive blasting.

Wet blasting is also less damaging to the item being cleaned, as the water stops the abrasive grit from getting embedded into the substrate. Dirt and build-up on the substrate are lifted by the grit and flushed along the surface by the water. The addition of water into the abrasive blasting process reduces friction and the production of heat, so there is less chance of the item being cleaned suffering damage.

We offer a mobile wet blasting service—so we will come out to your home, business or work site. Contact our Cairns office today for a quote.
