With a combination of high average power, high energy pulses, and high repetition rates our laser systems offer some of the fastest laser paint removal available.
THE ADVANTAGES OF HIGHER PULSE ENERGY
With a high laser peak power, it’s possible to use much larger laser spot sizes, allowing much faster paint removal than lower power laser systems. In many cases we can avoid removing layer by layer in a top-down ablative approach by using a detachment method which transmits laser energy through the media and activates imperfections at the interface between paint and substrate. The impurities are energized rapidly, creating small plasma events at the interface between the paint and substrate. If the beam spot size is large enough the plasma sites combine to generate a small shock wave, and immense localized pressure as the plasma expands.
