Removing Paint from Soft Brick
Abrasive blasting is the quickest way to restore brick. Using air pressure and abrasive media, the top layers of brick (and whatever has been used to coat them) are removed, revealing a clean layer of brick underneath. Abrasive blasting can be used to remove paint, sealant, excess mortar, efflorescence, or any surface contaminants that may be visible or invisible.
Sponge Media™ micro-abrasives are frequently used on brick restoration projects because of its physically pliant characteristics. These unique properties allow for less masonry micro-fractures, which is a common concern for regular abrasives.
