What is the Dustless Blaster?
The Dustless Blaster works by mixing water and abrasive inside the blast tank. By introducing water we’re drastically increasing mass and energy the machine is putting out, while eliminating dust. Imagine throwing a handful of dry sand, versus throwing a handful of wet sand; which one is going to have a more significant impact on the target? Not only will the wet sand hit the target harder, but it won’t disintegrate and become a cloud of dust like the dry sand will. This is the very simple principle behind Dustless Blasting. The Dustless Blasting system has the following advantages over the old, outdated dry blasting method:
Faster - The Dustless Blaster can strip a car in under 2 hours.
Minimal Dust - The abrasive gets trapped in water and grounded, eliminating the plume of dust.
Lower Abrasive Consuption - The Dustless Blaster uses less media to do more work.
Abrasive Flexibility - The Dustless Blaster can use almost any abrasive that sinks in water.
No Warping - The water prevents friction and won’t warp thin metal like sandblasting will.
Safe for Workers - Recycled bottle glass contains no free silica, the leading cause of silicosis.
Less Containment Needed - In most cases, expensive, time consuming containment doesn't need to be set up.
Doesn’t Affect Nearby Workers - Never sacrifice productivity, other workers can work nearby unaffected.
Leaves a Paint Ready Surface - The rust inhibitor decontaminates the metal leaving a clean, chloride free paint ready surface.

What kind of abrasive does it use?
We use 100% Recycled Crushed Glass Media. Crushed Glass “ESCA Glass” blasting media is an engineered “sandblasting” media manufactured from 100% Recycled Bottle Glass. Crushed glass is a good general purpose abrasive and is approved for use in numerous federal and state government agencies, and military branches.
100% recycled glass eliminates the health risk of airborne carcinogens. It is non-hazardous, non-toxic and completely inert, so is safe to use around water. Glass dust is classified by OSHA/NIOSH as only “nuisance” dust because it contains less than 1% free silica. Glass also does not contain virtually any of the OSHA identified Heavy/Toxic Metals associated with slags and some other mineral abrasives like natural olivine. Lastly, since glass is translucent, visibility and productivity are significantly improved when compared to a blast environment using traditional hard abrasives.
