Why use painting consumables?

Despite the increasing complexity of abrasive blasting and protective application, there is still a place in the industry for hand tools. Some of the handtools stocked by BlastOne That meet the needs of the Protective Coatings Industry include…

Crocodile Wipes – Unlike standard wipes, Crocodile Cloth® brand cleaning cloths are 15-inch by 10-inch, extra-large for faster, easier cleaning of surfaces, large and small. Crocodile Cloth® brand cleaning cloths are made of low-lint, non-woven, highly absorbent materials to collect and trap dirt like a microfiber cloth. They are tough on dirt but gentle to skin.

Lead Check Kits – 3M™ LeadCheck™ Swabs are disposable, convenient and simple to use. The entire test typically takes about 30 seconds. Just swab virtually any surface or material, including painted wood, metal, plaster, or drywall. If the swab turns red, lead is present.

Common issues with paint consumable products

One of the big problems with consumables from the big box retailers is that they are largely designed for handyman use only not professional use. BlastOne only stocks handtools a that have been proven in the field and shown themselves to be robust enough for the abrasive blast industry.

Using general rags in the protective Coatings Industry is not advisable, if colored they will bleed dye and if not lint free will leave lint behind on the surface being prepared or coated. Use either lint free cotton rags or specialized wipes.

Important considerations when choosing the right paint consumable products

One important consideration when choosing consumables is, are they solvent resistant? Many painting consumables from big box retailers have very limited solvent resistance, if any. This also applies to brushes and rollers. The first time some of these products are placed into solvent they disintegrate.

It is important to keep a stock of LeadCheck swabs in every vehicle in your fleet. The suspicion of the presence of lead can instantly shut a project down. By being able to instantly check can help to keep a project on the go.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What other consumables are available from BlastOne?

  • Are swab kits available for other toxins in addition to lead?

    Yes, swab test kits are available for detecting the presence of Chromates as well.
  • How easy are LeadCheck kits to use?

    Very simple, crush the glass vial, mix the two chemicals, and brush on. If the liquid turns red, it’s lead.
  • Can you use a LeadCheck swab to test for lead in an abrasive?

    No, if using a recycled abrasive that you are suspicious of that it may contain lead you will need to get analysis done in a laboratory.
  • Will a LeadCheck swab tell me how much lead is present on a suspect surface?

    No, it is a stop and go test only, simply indicating the presence of lead.
