Sponge-Jet® Blasting Services
Sponge-Jet® blasting is an innovative, low-dust dry abrasive blasting technology where sponge blasting media is propelled onto a surface and flattens on impact, exposing abrasives and abrading the surface. The sponge media then expands to create a vacuum that entraps nearly all the blasting dust and contaminants. Blasted media is collected and cleaned as part of the process, and up to 95% of the sponge media is recycled for reuse.
Sponge-Jet® blasting produces 98% less hazardous dust compared to traditional blasting methods, making it one of our most useful tools in the important work of preparing surfaces for beautiful, long-lasting paint finishes. Our skilled technicians carefully customize the blast pressure and media feed rate to achieve the best results for each individual project.

Sponge-Jet® Blasting Applications
Sponge-Jet® Blasting quickly removes old paint, corrosion, dirt, and biological and atmospheric contamination to restore surfaces to optimum conditions for new paint.
This advanced blasting method is suitable for industrial and commercial spaces and is particularly useful in situations where the area needs to be kept as dust free as possible. This may include indoor and crowded spaces, urban or highly populated outdoor areas, confined spaces, and sensitive areas where even minimal amounts of dust could be problematic or time-consuming to contain and clean up.
Benefits of Sponge-Jet® Blasting:
- Fast and effective – quickly renders surfaces to optimum condition for paint and coating adhesion
- Works on all substrates
- Can be calibrated to achieve any profile
- Safer – allows near perfect operator visibility and reduces potential for injury from rebound and ricochet of abrasive media
- Protects sensitive environments, equipment, and other assets
- Reduces clean up time and disposal costs
- Environmentally responsible – releases less pollutants and fugitive emissions; allows for up to 95% of sponge media to be recycled and reused
- OSHA-recognized for low toxicity

There is no such thing as 100% dust-free blasting!
Be cautious of those dust-free claims! While innovative Sponge-Jet® Blasting and advanced vapor blasting offer great advantages by vastly suppressing dust, 100% dust-free blasting is a myth.
Even so, the dust suppression achieved by using Sponge-Jet® Blasting and vapor blasting is still extremely advantageous and can minimize prep and clean up, reduce health and safety hazards, and protect the environment and your space exponentially over traditional blasting methods such as sandblasting or soda blasting.
