What Is Hydroblasting?

Hydroblasting is just what the name suggests. It uses highly pressurized water to remove old paint and line markings from an asphalt surface. Compared to other methods of paint removal, hydroblasting is:

  • Faster: Hydroblasting quickly strips old paint as well as excess bitumen, built-up oils, and other contaminants. It also re-texturizes a road surface, preparing it for new paint application in a single step. This makes it one of the fastest ways to complete a highway marking project.
  • More cost-effective: Because it’s so quick, hydroblasting is also economical. Less labor is required to complete a job and traffic interruptions are kept to a minimum. Hydroblasting also requires no special chemical treatments, which means your materials costs are lower, too.
  • More environmentally friendly: Hydroblasting is the most environmentally friendly way to remove line markings from a road or other paved surface. There are no solvents or fumes involved. Our system collects wastewater and filters it before disposal to ensure no contaminants leach into the soil.

It’s easy to see why hydroblasting has emerged as the preferred choice for line removal among both government agencies and private organizations. Its main drawback is that few contractors are equipped to perform it correctly. That’s where D.E. Gemmill, Inc. comes in. We’ve invested in the highest-quality hydroblasting water tank system available and are fully capable of taking on line removal projects of any size.

Potential Applications

Hydroblasting has numerous potential applications. It’s an important first step in maintenance and repairs to roadways, parking lots, and other paved surfaces. Use it to get rid of existing paint, epoxy or thermoplastic markings as well as oil and grease stains, graffiti and other cosmetic issues.

We can adjust our hydroblasting techniques according to the requirements of any job, using various spray widths to complete the project with fewer tasks. We can also accommodate special considerations such as delicate environmental conditions, heavy vehicle or pedestrian traffic, and more.
