An environmentally inert combination of water and recycled bottle glass to remove paint and marine growth from boat bottoms without harming the gelcoat has been introduced by MMLJ Manufacturing of Houston, Texas. The new Dustless Hull Blasting System works in 1/10th the time as traditional techniques.
Dustless blasting uses a minimal amount of water (about 15 percent of power-washer consumption). The inert combination encapsulates the hull coating being removed, preventing it from becoming airborne.
The blasting machine is available in 1-, 5-, 8-, 15- and 30-cubic-foot configurations and includes the blast hose, nozzle, and fill funnel. An air compressor will also be needed and the size will depend on the size of the blaster.
