Paint and Coatings removal pose many challenges across a variety of Industries and is often time consuming, labor intensive and costly. Laser cleaning supersedes antiquated techniques like sandblasting and chemical stripping, offering swifter, substrate-friendly, and cleanup-free results.

Dealing with hazardous coatings, such as those containing lead or asbestos, amplifies cleanup difficulties. Laser cleaning provides a secure and efficient alternative, using airflow and fume extraction to effectively eliminate hazardous emissions making it your Eco-Friendly solution.

NDT Cleaning and Prep

During shutdowns and scheduled inspections of plants, equipment, and assets, surface preparation for non-destructive testing (NDT) can greatly benefit from the meticulous and thorough cleaning provided by laser cleaning. Unlike other methods, laser cleaning ensures that there is no smearing, folding, or alteration to the substrate's surface. It effectively vaporizes surface contamination and eliminates particulates from defects, resulting in an optimal surface condition for dye penetrant and magnetic particle testing. Project Laser specifically enables the targeted and precise removal of surface corrosion, paint, soot, oil, grease, and various other thin layers of surface contamination prior to NDT inspections.

Rust Removal

Laser Rust Removal

Corrosion, rust, and oxides can cause significant damage and reduce the lifespan and performance of equipment and parts. Fortunately, laser rust removal is a faster and more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional methods like sandblasting and chemical removal. It completely removes rust and corrosion down to the bare metal without compromising the metal's integrity.

With our efficient setup and break-down time, laser rust removal is the perfect solution for restoring and maintaining parts and equipment. Our state-of-the-art laser technology allows us to remove rust and corrosion quickly and effectively, leaving the metal surface clean and restored. This means that you can extend the lifespan of your equipment and prevent further damage without using harmful chemicals or abrasive blasting methods.

Injection Mold Cleaning

Laser Injection Mold Cleaning

Laser cleaning offers a cost-effective alternative to traditional methods when it comes to cleaning injection molds. It is an environmentally sustainable process that swiftly and safely removes stubborn plastic or food residue without the use of chemicals or abrasive blasting. This leaves the mold with its original profile intact.

Laser cleaning is ideal for various applications, such as cleaning hot surfaces used in food product manufacturing, metallic baking trays, food molds, and conveyors. Our laser technology can efficiently remove oil, grease, and deposits from flat and textured baking molds made of steel, cast iron, or chrome-plated metal.

In addition to baking molds, laser cleaning is also suitable for cleaning tire molds, injection molds, and rubber molds. Our expertise and state-of-the-art laser cleaning technology enable us to effectively clean and restore these molds to their original condition, without causing any damage.

Wood Stain Removal

Laser cleaning has emerged as a highly effective and precise method for stripping stains from wood surfaces, offering a revolutionary approach to preserving the original integrity of wooden artifacts. Unlike traditional methods such as sanding or chemical stripping, laser cleaning provides a non-contact and non-abrasive solution. The laser emits a concentrated beam of light that selectively evaporates or removes the contaminants, such as stains or coatings, without affecting the underlying wood. This targeted approach allows for a controlled and gentle restoration process, minimizing the risk of inadvertently damaging the wood fibers or altering the surface texture. As a result, laser cleaning is particularly advantageous for delicate and irreplaceable pieces of wood, ranging from historical artifacts to valuable furniture, where preserving the authenticity and aesthetic qualities of the original material is paramount.

The use of laser cleaning technology not only ensures a more delicate treatment of wooden surfaces but also significantly reduces the risk of collateral damage that may occur with traditional restoration methods. Traditional techniques like sanding can inadvertently remove layers of the wood itself, while chemical strippers may pose a risk of discoloration or chemical reactions. Laser cleaning minimizes these risks by precisely targeting the unwanted elements on the surface, leaving the underlying wood unscathed. This level of precision makes it an ideal choice for restoring intricate details in artwork, antique furniture, or architectural elements where preserving the original patina and character is essential. The reduced risk of damage and the ability to fine-tune the process make laser cleaning a modern and reliable solution for the restoration and preservation of valuable wooden items.

Heritage Conservation & Restoration

Restoration and conservation of surfaces require special care and attention to avoid any damage. Laser cleaning is a gentle and effective solution that uses a non-abrasive and no-contact method to remove harmful surface deposits without resorting to sandblasting, chemicals, or pressure washing, which can cause permanent damage or even destroy the surface.

One of the major benefits of laser cleaning is that it does not require the use of harmful chemicals, and there is no wastewater runoff or blasting media left behind to dispose of once the cleaning process is completed. Any dust generated during the process can be easily cleaned up with our HEPA vacuum. As a result, the entire process is eco-friendly, making it a green and clean solution. This means that there will be no waste running off into waterways or airborne particles dispersing into the air.

Laser cleaning is ideal for a wide range of applications, including natural stone facades and buildings, monuments, statues, sculptures, and metal conservation. With our expertise and state-of-the-art laser cleaning technology, we can ensure that your surfaces are safely and effectively restored to their original condition without any damage.

Graffiti Removal

Laser Graffiti Removal

Laser cleaning is an excellent solution for removing graffiti from various surfaces. The process involves heating up the paint layers using a laser, which then evaporate away without damaging the underlying substrate. Whether it's stone, brick, steel, or cement, the laser effectively restores the surface to its original glory while keeping it cool due to its higher ablation temperature.

Unlike other methods of graffiti removal that leave behind harmful chemicals or abrasive media, laser cleaning produces no waste to clean up afterward. We utilize an advanced HEPA air scrubber and HEPA vacuum system to ensure that any dust or debris is safely and efficiently removed during the cleaning process. This makes laser cleaning the environmentally friendly and cost-effective choice for removing graffiti.

Biofilm Removal

Laser Biofilm Removal

Biofilms, which are collections of microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and algae, can grow on various surfaces and are difficult to remove using traditional methods such as rinsing or chemicals. However, laser cleaning offers an effective solution for killing and vaporizing biofilms, which prevents further growth and significantly extends the time between cleanings. By utilizing laser cleaning technology, it's possible to effectively eliminate the biofilm without damaging the underlying surface.

Removal of Soot Deposits

Laser Soot Removal

Laser cleaning is a highly effective solution for restoring surfaces damaged by fire when used properly. The laser can remove the soot buildup that occurs during a fire without damaging the underlying surface. This method is suitable for a variety of surfaces, even those with long-term soot buildup, such as brick, concrete, glass, steel, cast iron, aluminum, chrome coating, natural stone, tiles and ceramics, most types of wood, and plaster.

Grease & Oil Removal

Laser Grease and Oil Removal

Traditional methods of cleaning for grease removal have been expensive, messy, and time-consuming. However, with Advanced Laser Restoration, degreasing any surface is now easy and fast. Grease and oil are usually dark or black in color when they need to be removed, which makes laser cleaning an ideal solution. The contaminated layer absorbs the heat of the laser beam quickly and evaporates without causing damage to the substrate.

Our technicians are highly skilled in removing grease and oil from various surfaces, such as engine blocks, concrete, transmissions, mechanical parts, equipment, and tools. With our laser cleaning technology, we can effectively remove grease and oil from these surfaces without any hassle or inconvenience.
