OxNot CleanBlast is a surface preparation process that cleans, rather than covers, the metal and does not deposit or leave any residue on the surface. Uniquely designed to be used during wet abrasive blasting (unlike similar products) OxNot eliminates both water-soluble as well as non-water-soluble contaminants that interfere with coating adhesion and long term performance.
OxNot CleanBlast is mixed with clean water and abrasive media.
During wet abrasive blasting, abrasive media "opens" the surface using mechanical force to remove interference material and rust (oxidation layers).
OxNot CleanBlast interacts with contaminants at the point of impact by the abrasive media and immediate exposure of the surface.
Surface tension of the water is increased which helps wash away the contaminants and expedite dry times.
During wet abrasive blasting, OxNot CleanBlast chemically interacts with and removes contaminants for unimpeded coating/substrate contact, while simultaneously stabilizing the surface of metal so that it oxidizes very slowly and evenly, allowing more time for coatings to be applied – and leaves absolutely NO film or residue to hinder coating adhesion.
