Water Jet Concrete Scabbling

Water jet concrete scabbling or scappling is a technique applied to roughen up surfaces which are too smooth for certain uses. Traditionally, this effect was achieved manually with the use of hammers and axes. Hydroblast operators are able to accomplish this effect with the use of special equipment designed to apply highly pressurised water to areas.

Why Use Concrete Scabbling?

A slightly uneven surface can benefit those who use it with increased grip. In the case of forklift operations for example, rugged surfaces allow for better grip of the tyres, which is essential when driving and braking whilst moving objects.

Other uses for scabbing include preparing surfaces previous to having grout installed or receiving paint treatment, for decorative purposes, removing markings, and in very specific cases surface contamination.
