Avoid all the dust and all the noise in the paint removal process using an induction disbonder. This process breaks the bonding of the coating by means of localized superficial induction heat. The coating is then easily removed in entire sheets or flakes leaving a bear steel surface. The steel substrate can now either be coated with a special coating with no further surface preparation, or receive a sweepblast before recoating with a standard coating. In the first case no abrasive and dust is involved in the process. In the second case a very reduced quantity of abrasives with close to cero contanminents are involved in the proccess. Good for the operators and good for the environment. And good for the pocket as well.

Dag, is there a standard method for measuring surface cleanliness/completeness of removal? How well does the disbonder work inside a 12"x12" cross-section box beam, one face latticed, the others solid.

Abrasive blasting has been, and will be around for many years. Using this induction disponder is spinning your tires or dragging you anchor. You will still need to blast everything to prepare surface profile and elimnate many nonvisual surface contaminents for proper coating adhesion. I suggest using an alternative blasting technique described above by Alison Kaelin.
