Adopting the use of water jet blasting technology to remove road markings, spilled paints

 

The project is crystalized in adopting the latest water jet blasters using cutting-edge technology in removing markings and paints spilled on roads. This device is the most sophisticated of its kind in terms of speed and performance besides being environment-friendly.
 

The RTA is pioneer in introducing the water jet blasting technology in removing markings and paints spilled on roads. This ground-breaking technology was previously used in removing rubber deposits from aircraft tires caused by friction with runways; particularly after the successful experimental use of this new technology in 2010.

Removing road markings and spilled paints through water jet blasting technology and the re-sucking of used water is environment-friendly and does not inflict any harm to the public health compared to the old traditional method of sand blasting. Moreover, the new technology is economical, quick and free from negative impacts on the flow of traffic as it doesn’t require traffic diversions.
 

The new procedures is also characterized by high speed equalling 10 times the speed of the old model and is worth mentioning that  The RTA is pondering to avail this service to contractors and other parties on demand at competitive rates.
