Architectural Restoration
A laser’s ability to strip any visible surface makes it ideal for stripping the complex surfaces often encountered on bridges, buildings, and outdoor sculptures. Our 50-meter long umbilical connector allows the workhead to access hard-to-reach surfaces, indoors or out. Our unique color-selective workhead technology allow our system to strip paint, corrosion, dirt, bird dung, and other accumulated debris from structures of all kinds, with no risk of damage to substrates. Stripped particulate matter is easily captured in a paper filter for straightforward disposal. The portability and flexibility of our system makes architectural restoration a natural application.

Stripping Hazardous Materials
The potential for capturing and sequestering the hazardous particulate components of stripped coatings creates an entirely new way to deal with substances like lead paint, asbestos fibers, and other hazardous materials. Capturing particulate in paper filters enables far easier control and disposal of these materials than with conventional approaches, such as media blast or solvents. This greater ease not only reduces cost, but also raises the probability that proper disposal will actually occur.

Restoration of Fine Art
Our system’s ability to discriminate by color the material to strip makes it safe to use for restoration of paintings and other objets d’art. The laser can selectively remove dirt, soot, and other surface contaminants without any effect on the substrate. This color-based selectivity allows it to be more delicate than conventional cleaning techniques, all of which put the substrate material at some risk of damage. Our laser will strip the dirt and leave untouched whatever lies beneath.
