with the delicate touch!
bottoms have never been completely stripped, simply because it
is costly and very labour-intensive using conventional methods.
Instead, one coat of paint is applied over another and another
and so on. Eventually, all that is left are layered coats of
peeling paint and possible gelcoat failure. Not such a pretty
sight, but, more importantly the hull integrity is diminished,
as is boat operating performance due to a rough bottom surface
and the added weight of excessive layers of paint.
The answer is
SodaBlasting; an air pressure driven, non-destructive method of
cleaning and paint stripping for fibreglass, wood, steel,
aluminium and other materials. SodaBlasting is fast, cost
effective and flexible. SodaBlasting will remove the layers of
old paint without harming the gelcoat. Most boats can be soda
blasted in just one day with a much more thorough outcome than
traditional methods. Areas around through-hulls, running strakes
and prop pockets and be cleaned like never before. SodaBlasting
will prepare the surface for gelcoat repair, possible
application of an epoxy barrier coating and application of new
anti-fouling bottom paint. This will ensure years of coating
life service and better operating performance because of reduced
weight and less drag.
SodaBlasting will support and sustain good hull integrity while
improving performance in speed for sailing and motor craft with
lower fuel cost.
