involves introducing cob, glass bead, sodium bicarbonate or potassium
sulfate formulations into a low pressure air stream. This enriched
air stream is finely tuned for size, flow and pressure then directed
at the surface to be de-painted. These fine fragments cut into the
coatings then explode from the force of being blasted. The tiny explosions
help lift away coatings while greatly minimizing any damage to the
cedar or other wood below.
Dwight Hoel, President of Canadian Cedar Log Ltd. (CCL) we were able
to test and perfect our revolutionary process on an original CCL home
in Okotoks, Alberta. This home had portions of failing original finish
and numerous other coatings that had been applied by the owners through
the years. Not only did we handle this challenge but we exceeded the
expectations of Dwight Hoel and the crew from CCL. And we blew away
our competitions results (sandblasting, pressure washing and chemical
strip). That original test was in the Spring of 1998 and we've gone
on to strip coatings from hundreds of homes since, all with the same
remarkable results and satisfied customers.
