Guidemark utilizes three “Stripe Hog” SH-8000 waterblasters manufactured by Waterblasting Technologies. Using very fine needle-sharp streams of water at various pressures up to 40,000 psi, along with contemporaneously vacuuming the removal debris, Guidemark’s waterblasters remove markings and clean surfaces quickly and efficiently with minimal surface texture disturbance. The waterblasting method of removal produces the least amount of texture change to roadway surfaces when compared to any other removal methods. The powerful vacuums used on our machines leave a damp surface that typically dries within 20 minutes, thereby allowing the application of pavement markings, if required.
