The heart of the Sponge-Jet System is its Sponge Media. This patented technology combines the containment capability of urethane sponge and the cleaning and cutting power of conventional abrasives.
The pliant nature of Sponge Media abrasives allow its particles to flatten on impact (fig. 1), exposing the abrasive. After leaving the surface, the media expands, creating a vacuum – entrapping most of what would normally have become airborne contaminants (fig. 2). This is referred to as Sponge Media’s MicroContainment™.
