Surface treatment using pure light

Page last modified
February 22 2024

Netalux is specialised in laser cleaning, offering services, products and trainings in this technology. With laser cleaning, you can clean and treat surfaces using pure light. The technology can remove a wide variety of contaminants such as coatings, grease, and production residue from a range of substrates (stainless steel, copper, superalloys, aluminum, etc.). Most importantly, toxic contaminants can be removed in a safe way, because we developed a methodology to immediately capture the released particles.

Laser cleaning can be used for the following applications (this list is non-exhaustive):
- The cleaning of welds for non-destructive testing
- The cleaning of moulds
- The removal of a light layer of rust
- The removal of toxic contaminants
- Surface preparation for (re)coating or other sequential treatments
- The cleaning of tanks or vessels
- The cleaning of various production machines
- The cleaning of turbine parts
- ...
