HoldTight 102 is a water treatment for wet abrasive blasting, vapor abrasive blasting and ultra-high pressure blasting that decreases the water’s surface tension, allowing it to get into the profile of the surface and remove all contamination, including salts, abrasives, light oils, and greases. HoldTight leaves behind zero unwanted residue, and evaporates with the water, providing a surface that is thoroughly clean and flash rust free for 72 hours or more to ensure a tightly adhered coating. Blasting water treated with HoldTight onto a surface prior to coating removes all naturally-occurring contaminants (salts and conductives). HoldTight also removes byproducts of the blasting process (shattered abrasives, dried paint) lodged within the profile of the surface, allowing for the optimal adhesion of the coating. The cleanest surfaces are achieved when the product is used in both the blast and wash-down cycles at a 50 – 100 (water:HoldTight 102) ratio.
