A concrete scabbling service is a process of removing a thin layer from the surface of concrete or sometimes masonry. This can be used to roughen up surfaces to increase grip, produce aesthetic effects and much more.
Typically, scabbling is done with pressurised air equipment. Water jet scabbling, on the other hand, is achieved through the use of specialised equipment that sprays highly pressurised water to the targeted concrete.
Our water jetting based concrete scabbling makes our technique far safer than traditional types of concrete removal by dampening any dust clouds and reducing the chances of operators breathing harmful silica dust.
Concrete scabbling is effective at removing various substances from concrete surfaces where many traditional techniques are not productive. This is great at removing latex adhesives, paint, rusted material grease or waterproof membranes from concrete surfaces.
This process leaves the concrete pores open, providing a superior surface for applying coatings.
Less damaging to the concrete structure and does not affect the reinforcement steel.
Is a safer alternative that dampens any dust clouds and reduces the chances of breathing silica dust.
Creates no vibrations or oscillations ensuring the integrity of the surrounding and lower surfaces remain intact.
Additionally, unlike the traditional jackhammer techniques, water-based scabbling reduces noise pollution.
