This process can be used on both asphalt & concrete floor surfaces. It can be used to remove existing paint coatings, line markings, some screeds, profiling, texturing & to reduce the surface to a lower tolerance. The machine has a rotating drum on which is placed Tungsten star shaped cutters (for planing), Beam flails (for paint removal) or Milling cutters ( for concrete reduction). This work can be quite dusty & noisey so we would also use Dust extraction & ear protection.
Why use scabbling?
Scabbling is used to reduce concrete, provide a coarse key or remove bitumen & thick coatings. We would normally shotblast afterwards to leave a clean substrate ready for a screed or coating.
