14 SURFACEPREP 2015 COATINGSPROMAG.COM Concrete and Steel A aron Craig of Graco offered another option in abrasive blasting: vapor abrasive blasting. Different from wet or slurr y blasting, vapor abrasive blasting instead uses a mist to deliver the media to the various ty pes of substrates. According to Craig, Graco now offers their EcoQuip line w ith various vapor abrasive blasting models (e.g., mobile, skid, and trailer units). T hey offer pressure options from 30 to 120 psi (207–827 kPa), can be used w ith common ty pes of blast media, eliminate up to 92 percent of airborne dust, and are ideal for coatings projects at shipyards, on bridges, and in restoration, for example. Grinders are another type of concrete surface prep equipment that can be used to both clean the substrate as well as create a CSP. Grinders use horizontally rotating disks, or wheels, to clean, smooth, or level a concrete surface. Depending on the type of abrasive wheel used on the grinder, it can be used to lightly prepare the surface if applying thin coatings, or it can quickly remove mastics, epoxies, urethanes, and thick coatings. Grinders are often walk-behind units, but some manufacturers also ofer hand-held units for corners or other areas with limited access. Diamatic USA manufactures a complete line of planetar y grind- ers and planers for coating removal, substrate preparation, and concrete planning. "Diamatic's planetar y grind- ers use various diamond tooling and have many shapes and sizes to cut, clean, profile, or remove coatings from f loors," said Kevin Partin of Diamatic. For more aggressive concrete surface preparation, coatings contrac- tors can use scarifers to remove contaminants and abrade the substrate surface. Scarifers use steel- or carbide- tipped cutters, in various shapes, depending on application, that are loaded on shafts placed around the perimeter of a cylindrical drum. As the drum rotates, the cutters impact the surface at a high speed. Scarifers VENDOR TEAM AGSCO Corporation 160 West Hitz Rd.
