Lead paint removal

Port Kembla NSW – December 2019

– The Cringila station’s pedestrian overpass required de-painting of the lead based coatings

– Due to the short rail shut down requirements and access times traditional erection of scaffold and containment for sandblasting was not economical or practical

– PLC was engaged to undertake the lead paint removal via laser ablation

– Two PLC laser systems worked in unison to remove all the lead based coatings with direct HEPA extraction and capsulation ensuring no airborne particles were realised into the atmosphere
