Laser cleaning is one of the most environmentally friendly way to clean or prepare a fouled surface. This is because little or no waste is created during the process. Tube Tech provide the fastest laser cleaning service in the world.
Laser cleaning works by ablation: the coating layer is removed as it absorbs the focused laser light. Very powerful but short laser pulses have little thermal influence on the base material. The blank base material reflects laser radiation, stopping the ablation process. With the correct laser parameter and best wavelength a host of cleaning and surface preparation tasks can be achieved quickly and cost effectively.
Paint Removal by Laser
The ablation process can remove one layer of paint at a time which means the client can decide exactly how much paint should be removed.
The surface is left in damaged as the surface material (metal, plastic, ceramic, concrete even organic materials ) usually reflects most of the laser energy leaving a clean surface following coating removal.
An additional benefit to laser blasting of paint is that it converts fouling into small particles and vapour which can be collected by a vacuum filtration system.
Sandstone Laser Blasting
Pollution, lime scale and removal of environmental fouling has proved successful worldwide.
The laser can distinguish between scale and natural stone which means damage risk is greatly reduced.
Operators control the depth of laser penetration so scale is removed from sandstone layer by layer.
Laser Surface Preparation Blasting is a versatile process, to many different contaminants, applications and substrates, allowing you to remove many types of contamination eg nuclear, hydrocarbons, paint, without surface damage making it a great tool for so many applications.
