The removal of old paint or rust from steel can be done in several ways. When layers of rust are removed by sanding or grinding, tiny rust particles will be grinded into the steel. Rust which is not completely removed, will always come back.
Removing rust and paint with the IBIX blastpot will be removed completely. The surface remain slightly roughened. This surface is called SA 2½ as a proof for paint manufacturers for the right surface. By using the IBIX system you have the assurance of a durable solution and the best possible surface. Also very hard and tough paint layers are easily removed in less than half of the time as sanding and grinding. The Ibix system is also widely used for “hard to reach” places. Due to compact design the Ibix 9 can be used in combination with a carrying bag. The lightweight Ibix is easy to move and is very compact, but has an enormous power.
