Pros of Hydroblasting

Cons of traditional methods


We can paint strip, restore and de-rust bodywork, taking it back to bare metal. We can handle various types of metals, such as: sheet steel, stainless steel, aluminium, light alloys, composites… and the list goes on.

We use just pure water blasted at an adjustable pressure as high as 3100 bar, without leaving any residue or affecting body lines and curves in any way, unlike treatments such as sandblasting, bead blasting, silicon, nitrogen, paint strippers, bake-off ovens or acid baths. In addition, parts treated with our method are made good with the removal of impurities, and hence are not subject to flash rusting.

What makes our treatments stand out is the fact that they are carried out entirely by hand by meticulous, fully trained expert personnel.


Treatments of other kinds have some very specific downsides:

  • Sandblasting: this is almost always an automatic, industrial process, hence unmanned and dangerous for delicate parts. It invariably removes part of the material being treated, often distorting it, and always leaves behind treated material and sand residue in folded seams and casings.
  • Chemical treatments: anyone offering certified work and guarantees has now moved away from these methods. Automatic dip techniques of this kind, involving acid baths with non-reversible corrosive substances, have ongoing destructive effects long after treatment.
  • Heat treatments: Heat treatments: anyone dealing with important materials has abandoned such methods as bake-off ovens, pyrolytic paint stripping and automatic heat treatments as they warp and alter aluminium irremediably and expose metal to serious thermal shock, which has dire consequences when heated to ultra-high temperatures and then cooled quickly.
