Alderson wet sanding system

Features Summary

  • Water prevents heat build-up causing substrate damage.

  • Water reduces clogging.

  • Water means no dust to interfere with washing on the line or cars parked nearby.

  • Water means you don’t need to water blast first.

  • Water means that the abrasive discs last much longer – 2 discs per side for an average sized house.

  • Water and no electrical leads means surface preparation can be done on a rainy day.

  • Water with the Alderson sander means that the slurry from lead based paints can easily be collected in the Alderson “Enviromat”.

  • No dust masks or vacuums required.

  • There is no need for power cables so trades people don’t need access to the property.

  • No need for dust masks or vacuum bags.

  • No expensive backing plates to replace.

  • Used in conjunction with our “Enviromat” it is the safest system for the removal of lead based painted surfaces.  There is no lead based dust and the sanded lead particles are safely collected in the Enviromat with the water passing through the mat.  For this reason it is now the NZ Master Painters preferred system for the removal of lead based paint.
