Performance Range

The patented Bristle Blaster® Technology removes corrosion and coatings quickly and thoroughly. At the same time, the Bristle Blaster® creates surface preparation grades comparable with Sa 2½ (SSPC-SP 10/NACE No. 2) to Sa 3 (SSPC-SP 5/NACE No. 1) and roughness levels of up to 120 µm Rz. Our technology offers numerous advantages over conventional methods of surface preparation:

  • Removes corrosion, coatings, scale and adhesive residues
  • Surface preparation grade comparable with Sa 2½–3 per ISO 8501-1
  • Roughness levels of up to 120 ɥm Rz
  • Minimal loss of base material 
  • Generates compressive residual stress across the treated surface for improved crack resistance, fatigue life and stress corrosion resistance
  • Surface free of thermal damage and traces of heat marking
  • Efficient removal of viscous coatings without smearing, gumming up or clogging the belt
  • Short set-up times thanks to lightweight and portable equipment 
  • No transportation costs for blasting materials
  • No recycling or disposal costs for contaminated blasting grit
  • No need to enclose the work zone
  • Possible to continue other work in the immediate vicinity
  • Low power requirements
  • Low vibration levels
  • ATEX-approved for use in Zone 1 (potentially explosive) atmospheres in accordance with Ex II 2G c IIA T4 X (Bristle Blaster® Pneumatic) 
  • Low sound pressure level of max. 83.2 dB(A)
  • No need for elaborate protective clothing 
  • Lightweight and ergonomic design
  • No harmful materials used
  • No transportation costs for blasting materials
  • No disposal of contaminated blasting materials
  • Minimal dust formation
  • Low power requirements
