Rejuvenate surfaces with our sandblasting systems

Efficient, sustainable  Surface Rejuvenation in Tasmania

Bob De Groot painting contractors can now offer the Torbo blasting system to speed up paint removal from a range of surfaces.

The torbo blasting systems permit virtually dust-free, eco-friendly, and effective sandblasting. This special blasting process meets the highest standards of precise and specific cleaning performance.

Wet abrasive blasting is also known as vapor blasting, vapor abrasive blasting, wet sandblasting, dustless blasting and wet blasting and is a dustless way to remove cracked and peeling paint and prepare surfaces for recoating.

The process produces 95% less dust, 60% less consumption of blasting material and water and is 100% sustainable.

Restore Sandstone stonework

We recently rejuvenated the stonework on the Gretna Green hotel. This had years of paint and mortar buildup which was all safely removed with our new Torbo high pressure system. The stonework was undamaged by the process. Increase the value of your stone home by having our contractors restore your stonework.

Safe & effective Graffiti Removal in Hobart

Torbo wet abrasive blasting equipment blasts with a gentle pressure of 1 to 4 bar (14 to 58 psi) , preventing water from penetrating the masonry and causing long-term problems. High pressure cleaners work with up to 500 bar, too high a pressure for most buildings and chemical removal can be toxic.

Bob De Groot painting contractors now offer a safe and effective method to safely remove graffiti without damaging the underlying surface.

Cleaning Brickwork

The same methods can be utilised to clean paint and gunk from brickwork leaving the underlying surface undamaged.
