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.

1. Airport Runway Cleaning and Rubber Removal
Debris accumulates on runways, including rubber from plane tires that rubs off over time and after many landings. Hydroblasting can remove anything that collects on the runway, with the combination of high water pressure with high volume and temperature clearing away whatever sits there. This technique is fast and effective, and planes can resume takeoffs and landings quickly after we complete a cleaning.
2. Asphalt Surface Cleaning
Your airport has taxiways where the planes go to the gate, as well as ramps, aprons and aircraft stands. All of them require cleaning due to frequent use. Our hydroblasting technique can remove dust and even organic material that gathers on the asphalt. The all-natural hydroblasting method is friendly to the environment too. It can make your airport look cleaner and show you care about upkeep — something pilots appreciate.
3. Pavement Marking Cleaning
Have your pavement markers become faded and difficult to read? Clean off the existing ones with hydroblasting. The high-pressure water will remove the paint from the pavement in minutes. You can then re-mark the area once it has dried. Having proper markings can help your airport function more effectively.
