54' VIKING YACHT
DUSTLESS BLASTING® CASE STUDY
When it comes to boating excellence, Viking is a name that needs no introduction. With such a high-end investment at stake, discovering blisters on the fiberglass gelcoat of this 54-foot vessel called for a swift and efficient solution. And that's where DUSTLESS BLASTING® stepped in as the clear choice.
The DB500® was able to remove the hull's anti-fouling paint with ease. By extending the blasting of blistered areas, the blisters were effectively opened up for proper repair.
Unlike traditional dry sandblasting which creates a massive cloud of dust and paint particles, our wet abrasive blasting method ensures that all debris is trapped in water and grounded, leaving neighboring boats undisturbed.
Normally, we recommend blasting fiberglass at about 70 PSI.
However, the main goal of this job was to open blisters in the gelcoat so they could be repaired. Since gelcoat is tougher than the antifouling paint, the blasting crew wisely kicked the pressure up to 120-135 PSI.
