Each material, both the base and the coatings we want to remove, have their own specific properties. The choice of process as well as equipment depends on the correct choice of power, frequency, laser beam modulation options and pulse density.
Many types of laser cleaners are already available on the market today at an affordable price, but the vast majority is limited to more or less successfully removing rust, grease and maybe paint. Other coatings, such as various plastic coatings, ceramic coatings, Kevlar, composites or carbon fibre based materials and various galvanic coatings are not as easy to remove and require a lot of knowledge and experience.
The correct and safe extraction and filtration of sometimes extremely toxic components, released into the atmosphere during the plasma phase, are often neglected. There are few providers of laser cleaning systems who warn their customers about this issue, as most of them do not offer these solutions or do not know them well enough.
To avoid buying a simple laser cleaner, which is by no means cheap and in the end will not solve your problem, a consultation with experts such as FerroECOBlast Europe is more than encouraged.
