Remove paint, primer, rust, and body filler in just one step. While our crew takes our blast rig to the site of your project, you can lay back and watch the magic happen from the comfort of your own garage.
The Dustless Blasting system mixes water with the media inside the blast pot. By adding water to the media, we can utilize micro-sized abrasive. The result of the water vapor and delicate blast media= great reduction in the chance of damaging thinner body panels.
**Glass and chrome can still be damaged so it’s imperative that those pieces are either removed prior to the blast date or thoroughly covered with thick duct tape and a high quality plastic. We recommend 6 mil plastic and “gorilla tape”.
Because of the versatility in abrasive, the fine media we use has enough hardness to remove all rust, epoxy paint and primers, powdercoating, and even the heaviest body filler… leaving your car with a clean, white-metal finish.
All of our equipment is combined onto a truck and trailer combination. We have stripped cars in driveways, industrial lots, autobody shops, and even in our own shop. We take the blast to wherever is most convenient for you.
On the spectrum of options, Dustless Blasting ranks in the middle of pack. There are cheaper options, but those options don’t offer the same unique advantages, value and protection.
Rust Inhibitor keeps the surface clean and free of flash rust for 72 hours.
We do not price vehicles with a flat rate since every blast is different. We generally charge an hourly rate for our services since there are varying degrees of prep, containment, detail required, amongst other factors.
We can give you an approximate cost if you send us pictures (by text or email) of the object to be blasted but we will also inquire about:
Knowing where we will be stripping the vehicle will be pertinent. It allows us to assess the surrounding area and will help us determine if it will be permissible for us to blast. The process will be loud (~115 dB) and although the water suppresses most of the media from becoming airborne, there will be a substantial amount of media in the surrounding immediate area of the blast site (~15 foot radius).
Most homes, driveways, and RV pads are potential blast sites.
When we arrive, we love it if we can get straight to blasting. However, if you need us to help prepare the car, we are able and willing, but we charge for prep work such as protecting glass and chrome. This may include using heavy duty 6 mil plastic with heavy grade duct tape to protect it. We will also do the same with any chrome left on the vehicle. If your vehicle has had the interior removed, we will use tarp or plastic along the inside to help catch media and keep the interior as clean as possible. Finally, placing a large tarp under the vehicle catches most of the media that ricochets to the ground.
Once the blast is complete, we will wash down the car thoroughly with water that contains a rust inhibiting chemical known as “Hold Tight 102” or equivalent. These additives prevent the flash rust that is caused by the chloride being embedded into the metal while wet blasting for approximately a 48-72 hour window in which you will need to prime the metal before it begins to show signs of surface rust again. This window maybe slightly shorter or longer depending on variables such as where the vehicle is stored; we recommend storing it indoors and in a dry environment.
If you elect to have us blast the interior areas of the auto, such as interior trunk space, interior cab, or even some parts of the engine compartment, we usually take the liberty of blasting dry. We do this because these areas rarely warp due to the nature of the steel in these areas. Most importantly, cleaning dry abrasive out of these areas is exponentially easier than wet, damp media. Whatever process we use, we will ensure that the interior of your vehicle is clear of debris using a shop vacuum.
