We pride ourselves on our commitment to minimizing surface preparation costs while increasing labor and process efficiency. Time and time again,Watex has applied these technologies and processes with great success. We have cleaned and recoated hundreds of thousands of square feet in demanding environments and circumstances.Watex specializes in 10,000 to 40,000 psi Ultra High Pressure surface preparation also specializes in removing urethanes, epoxies, lead-base coatings and membranes from concrete and steel structures.
In recent years with Watex high pressure water jetting leading the way, UHP Water Blasting has become the leading method for Surface Preparation. The benefit of UHP Water Blasting is its extremely ingenious way of being an effective and environmentally friendly way to prepare a surface for coating application with only pressurized water.
ProblemHigh-pressure water jetting is not only economical, but with so many environmental advantages it is swiftly becoming the preferred process for coating removal by many major industries. It can removing rust, scale and coatings with grit blasting requires containment and/or clean-up, and those costs can have a significant impact on profitability. For contractors doing environmental remediation – removing asbestos or lead paint, for example – the containment issue is even more critical.
Watex water jetting system with vacuum recovery needs no containment or clean-up. It works quickly and thoroughly – without harming the surface profile – and leaves a clean, dry surface that’s ready for recoating.
