The superior method for long-lasting, high-quality, and efficient surface preparation.
What is hydroblasting?
Hydroblasting, also known as hydrodemolition surface preparation, involves the use of high-pressure (high velocity) water jets to prepare a surface for a coating procedure. Cleaning the surface of pre-existing coatings, surface imperfections, organic matter, oxidation, and other contaminants is often a necessity to ensure the ideal conditions for new concrete or coating to bind to the old material.
Hydroblasting concrete, steel, and other materials is an effective cleaning solution because of its ability to adapt to the requirements of a wider range of applications, projects, and structures. The water stream is usually set at the minimum pressure to begin with to remove the unwanted materials, while minimizing damage to underlying materials.
Advantages of hydroblasting concrete and other materials
- Cleans off surfaces without affecting the underlying surface.
- Creates a rough, clean surface ideal for bonding with new materials.
- Creates no vibrations
- Noise and dust pollution are dramatically reduced.

Traditional techniques and surface preparation technologies often require both containment and/or clean-up. The associated costs can have a significant impact on a contractor’s profitability. And for contractors doing environmental remediation, such as removing asbestos or lead-based paint, the issue of containment becomes even more critical.
The Conjet ACR™ robot offers not only efficient water jet concrete removal, but also advanced industrial hydroblasting for precise surface preparation. We provide surface preparation technology with the same productivity, but without the expense, hazards, and accompanying clean-up problems.
