HYDROBLASTING The broad term used for any ultra-high-pressure water jetting operation in an industrial application. This includes hydro demolition, surface preparation, paint removal and line marking removal/ road marking removal. Here at Total Line Marking we like to give our clients the best options and that is what Hydroblasting is. It’s the best option for the removal of road markings on tarmac, concrete and block paving. We can use our Hydroblaster for the removal or runway rubber, tyre marks and general UHP cleaning where standard equipment will not suffice because of noise, pollution and safety regulations. It is now common practice in all London boroughs for all line marking removal to be carried out via Hydroblasting instead of burning off however, this is not always in budget and can be overkill for a small amount of works. For smaller projects we offer 2 other methods to remove or mask old markings.
HCA LANCE (burning off) This has been common practice for line marking companies throughout the years. Burning off line markings is a quick and relatively cost effective way to remove unwanted lines. Unfortunately, because of the smoke, heat and noise emitted, it is not usually recommended in populated areas.
SCABBLER / GRINDING A scabbler is an essential tool in the Line marking companies arsenal. On top of quick and easy removal of even the most stubborn lines, it can be used for surface prep before new lines are marked out providing a ‘key’ for better adhesion. The only drawbacks for scabbling is that there can be some scarring to the surface after. It can also result in a lot of dust/debris if the existing lines are thick. We normally recommend the use of a scabbler on concrete surfaces for paint removal or surface preparation.
