Plastic media blasting


A Solid Track Record

In the 1970's, the most popular way to remove paint from aircraft bodies was to cover them with chemicals that would swell the paint. US Technology changed that. We pioneered the concept of dry plastic media blasting, giving project managers a superior stripping process that reduced costs, safety concerns, environmental liability and turnaround time. Over the years, US Technology has continually introduced new blasting media and services that refine the blasting process. We've expanded beyond aircraft depainting to serve the coating-removal demands associated with many other industries such as electronics, ships, vehicles, bridges and buildings. US Technology has testing facilities that enable us to help our customers identify the blasting media and services that best fit their needs. Our reputation reflects our long history and credibility of work in this field. US Technology is second to none in creativity, which has made us the industry leader.

US Technology's Environmentally Friendly
Plastic Media Blasting Process

US Technology's dry blasting process beats chemical stripping on several fronts. Plastic blasting media works faster and creates less residue than chemical paint strippers or other media. Our media products are manufactured from thermoset plastics geared to perform rapidly and minimize waste. When applied to hard or delicate surfaces at the appropriate process parameters, our materials rapidly remove the unwanted paint or coating. Compared to chemicals, our process maintains a favorable environment inside and outside your facility. The residue left by US Technology's blasting process can be recycled. No hazardous waste is generated from our de-paint process.

Full-Service Capabilities

blasting equipment There is more to a blasting project than selecting the right media. Media is available in a variety of types and sizes, each of which is appropriate for different applications. Other parameters affecting performance are pressure, equipment, angle, distance, coating thickness, substrate and material flow. To insure our customers have an optimized process for their applications, we offer a full-service testing laboratory and facilities and equipment engineering that can determine exactly which combination will achieve the best performance. We can identify what is needed to get the best results from the blasting media. We can provide complete blasting services - media, equipment, testing, personnel, surface preparation, cleanup and recycling services. Our comprehensive capabilities set us apart from others in the industry that only specialize in one component of the process.

A Recognized Recycler

US Technology has long been an innovative and recognized recycler of spent plastic blasting media. Our recycling program eliminates haz-waste materials. As a result, participants in our recycle program are not generators of hazardous waste.

US Technology introduces a new innovation in recycling: The SEALTECH™ Block, Architectural Concrete Masonry Unit.
SEALTECH™ Block is the only Architectural Concrete Masonry Unit to be third party certified "Green," making it the only environmentally friendly concrete masonry unit to potentially qualify for LEED© credits. Through our patented formulation SEALTECH™ Block is the only ACMU to be inherently water-resistant. This revolutionary new product is stronger, less porous and more aesthetically uniform than standard concrete masonry units.
