Heat Induction Paint Removal

This project used heat induction as an alternative to traditional grit blasting to remove existing intumescent paint from the structural steel frame. This method uses heat induction technology, similar to a heat induction hob, to break the chemical bonds between the intumescent paint and the steelwork, allowing it to be manually scraped off with minimal effort.

The benefits of this alternative method over traditional grit blasting are as follows:

  • Silent in operation therefore does not result in excessive noise issues
  • Dust free and therefore does not require the associated monitoring and containment measures
  • Clean Tech – in that it utilises electricity instead of a diesel powered compressor (as would be the case for grit blasting) therefore saving CO2 emissions and improving the carbon footprint of the project.
  • Reduced risk to other site operatives as is not reliant on use of compressed air and doesn’t produce noise or dust.
