The Bristle Blaster System is an innovative bristle blasting process that removes corrosion and generates an anchor profile by using a specially designed rotary bristle tool. This tool consists of hardened wire bristle tips that are bent forward and are dynamically tuned to a hand-held power tool which operates at approximately 3,500 rpm. Most common uses include: Coating removal, Paint removal, Scale removal, Weld cleaning, Surface decontamination, Surface preparation, Texturing Applications, and Corrosion removal.
