Concrete Floor, Staining and Prepping

Concrete Surfaces and Floor Preparation

Stains offer decorative concrete artisans endless design possibilities. Concrete surfaces can be restored from dull to new using the staining and overlaying technique. This technique helps decorative concrete artisans transform dull tattered concrete floors into concrete masterpieces.

Concrete staining and overlaying is a renovation technique that helps contractors save their clients money by: conserving resources while eliminating the need to remove or replace the concrete. Contractors can choose to add texture using color and patterns intended to give it a stamped look or they can simply restore the existing beauty of the concrete surface using the restoration process.

Preparing concrete surfaces for stains and overlays is a time consuming process that takes careful attention to detail to ensure each step is followed. If any steps are missed, a contractor can run the costly risk of not producing the planned results and having to re-do the job from the beginning.

Prepping a Floor for Stains and Overlays

Dustless preparation of a concrete floor to accept stains and overlays in an occupied building is a multi-step process. Depending on the look of the finished product, grinders and Skil saws as well as multiple types of abrasive wheels and blades may be needed to complete the job.

Prepping the Floor

To apply an overlay that won’t crack or peel, the concrete surface must be free of old paints, grease and solvents and it must be profiled with a diamond cup wheel.

If a floor has old paint, epoxy or other soft material on it, the silica carbide wheel is the most efficient way to remove the coatings. It is a 16 grit wheel designed to remove a lot of material very quickly. Do not lean on the wheel. It should be swept lightly over the surface so that only the coating is removed. This also lengthens the life of the silica carbide wheel. Leave the profiling of the concrete to the diamond cup wheels.

When stains and overlays are applied, the manufacturer will often recommend profiling the concrete. For this job, a diamond cup wheel is the preferred method for profiling or putting some “tooth” on the concrete. In order to avoid swirl marks when profiling the concrete, the 24-tooth turbo diamond cup wheel is the industry standard.

When Thinset is being removed from an existing floor, the double row diamond cup wheel is labor-saving in that the Thinset is quickly removed, but the operator has to be careful to avoid swirl marks.

Dust Muzzle Leatherneck

Dust Muzzle Leatherneck for Floor Prep

Dust Collection Products has a complete line of dust shrouds for grinding with diamond cup wheels and zec wheels on concrete floors. The Dust Muzzle Leatherneck is the most versatile dust collection shroud for floor prep. Because if its wide range of vertical flexibility, it can handle both Zec wheels which are only ¼” thick as well as the diamond cup wheel which tend to be over 1 ¼” deep.

Original Dust Muzzle

If the original Dust Muzzle is used with a 7” Zec wheel, the operator must choose the appropriate model 7” Dust Muzzle from the cross reference on the web site. If it is used with a diamond cup wheel, the operator should choose from one of the 8” models.

Dust Muzzle Ultra and Dust Muzzle Heavy Duty

The 5” Dust Muzzle Ultra and the 5” Dust Muzzle Ultra Heavy Duty can be used with all diamond cup wheels and Zec Wheels. The 8” Dust Muzzle Ultra and 8” Dust Muzzle Ultra Heavy Duty can only be used with Diamond Wheels. There is not enough vertical adjustment to accommodate a 7” Zec wheel.

Saw Cutting and Faux Grout Lines Using the Saw Muzzle

Expansion joints and faux grout lines are added after the stain or overlay is applied to the floor. Dust Collection Products manufacturers the Saw Muzzle for worm drive and hypoid, left-bladed circular saws. The Saw Muzzle can be used with a .100” kerf saw blade for cutting expansion joints or with a .250” kerf square cut blade, both with the diamond knockout for the worm drive saws. Dust Collection Products also carries three rolling carts. The Blade Roller and the Skateplate are used when making shorter cuts. For longer cuts, the Standup Rolling Cart is preferred because it allows the worker to cut standing up. The saw triggers from the handle and the rolling cart has an excellent guide that allows for cutting die-straight lines.

Choosing the Correct Vacuum

All dust collectors, regardless of the model or design, depend on a vacuum to remove the dust from the point of origin. Because of this, it is important to know how to evaluate different industrial vacuums. There are three important things to look for in a vacuum: CFM, static lift and filtration.

CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute)

CFM is an abbreviation for cubic feet per minute. This is a measure of the volume of air the vacuum is moving. 100CFM is the benchmark for efficient airflow. Most vacuums move enough air to work with point of origin dust collectors…at least for a few minutes. But on weak vacuums, when the filters start to load up, the CFM begins to drop.

Static Lift

Whereas CFM measures the volume of air moved, static lift measures the ability to keep the air moving under a load. Static lift is measured in inches. It can be equated to torque on a motor. If a vacuum has 80” of lift, it means it can lift a column of water 80” off the ground. When a filter is loaded up with fine dust, it becomes more difficult to pull air through the pores. A vacuum that delivers 120CFM with 80” of lift will continue to pull a large volume of air through the filter whereas a vacuum that delivers 120CFM with 40” of lift will tend to see a substantial drop in the CFM. This will result in loss of efficiency for the dust collector.

Filtration

There are many types of good filtration They run from pulse type back flush systems to paper and plastic disposable filters. The most cost effective systems for the affordably priced vacuum systems use a disposable paper or woven plastic filter. They typically hold 5-20 pounds of silica dust. They filter down to .5 microns, which is close to the HEPA (High Efficiency Particle Absorbing) spec of .3 microns. When they are full of dust, they are removed from the vacuum and thrown away. They are typically used with a secondary filter that protects the motor and a HEPA downstream filter to remove particles from the exhaust.

Nacecare Vacuums

Dust Collection Products has a complete line of HEPA FLOW vacuums. The Nacecare 570 comes with a 2-year warranty and will out perform any other industrial vacuum in its price range. It comes with 10 filters and it can provide up to 99% efficiency with any of our dust collectors.

Complete Dustless Systems for Saw Cutting with Circular Saws

Concrete-by-Design

Concrete, Bricks, Mortars, Saw Cutting, Concrete Cutting and Modern Architecture

Many techniques can be applied to concrete for imparting aesthetic finishes. Concrete can be used to add style to any indoor or outdoor setting. Distressed finishes, stone surfaces and warm masculine colors can evoke older world elements turning your ordinary patio into a Tuscan scene. Walls, walkways, driveways, patios, steps, fireplaces, outdoor kitchens and fountains are just a few of the features you can design using concrete. By applying subtle shades of gray in large geometric areas, interpretations of modern style can be achieved using concrete.

Concrete functions as the centerpiece to some of the most breathtaking construction projects. Brick-lined pathways, scalloped edges and symmetrical lines are all types of traditional textured patterns you can achieve using bricks and mortars. Brick is a popular medium used in the construction of buildings and homes. Traditional brickwork is produced using bricks and mortar. Tuck pointing is a technique the masonry industry uses to design brickwork facades. By combining two contrasting colors of mortars in mortar joints a decorative element in architectural composition comes to life.

Concrete contractors can bring surfaces to life using a technique called decorative saw cutting and scoring. There are many tools available for cutting patterns into concrete to create dramatic affects. Contractors can use hand held saws or special engraving tools which were specifically designed to score concrete. With concretes many uses it is important for every contractor to be aware of the many dangers as well.

Concrete Dust Control and Safety

Air quality and safety are the main purposes for using a dust collection system. The silica content of concrete and mortar increases the risk of silicosis in the concrete construction and masonry industry. Ongoing exposure to airborne silica dust can damage a person’s lung and overtime reduce their capacity to breath normally.

Research indicates there is a link between exposure to silica dust over long periods of time and lung related diseases as a result including lung cancer, tuberculosis and COPD. This fact has made OSHA strengthen their worker safety standards.

As a contractor you must ensure your workers are being protected. You must take the measures necessary to reduce your workers exposure to silica dust. To make sure you stay compliant with OSHA standards, consider creating a complete dustless system for during your next concrete construction project with Dust Collection Products line of dust collectors.

Complete Dustless Systems for Saw Cutting with Circular Saws

There are generally five components needed for a complete point of origin dust control system for cutting concrete the saw, the cutting blade, the dust collector (Saw Muzzle), the vacuum and the step-down hose.

Dust Collection Products keeps a full inventory of all these components as well as accessories such as the Blade Roller, Skateplate and Heavy Duty Stand-Up Rolling Cart in their San Diego warehouse, ready for same day shipping.

The preferred method for cutting faux grout lines and expansion joints is the Skil™ or Bosch Model 77 type worm drive circular saws. When this saw is mounted on a Blade Roller or a Skateplate and fitted with a Saw Muzzle, it is capable of collecting up to 99% of the silica dust as long as it is connected to a standard 2hp industrial vacuum. Dust Collection Products has a complete inventory of vacuums as well as a selection of faux grout line, 1/4” kerf square cut blades, .250” crack chasing blades and standard .100” kerf turbo and segmented saw blades. All blades have the diamond knockout for the Skil and Bosch worm drive saws.

Dust Collection Products also has a deep inventory of hose ends, unions and splitters for their 2hp Nacecare vacuum systems.

When cuts longer than a couple hundred feet are to be made, the Standup Rolling Cart is recommended as the best way to save a worker’s knees. This heavy-duty rolling cart will carry both the Bosch and Skil worm drive saws. It weighs almost 20 pounds and is made from industrial grade aluminum and mounted on large urethane wheels. It tracks excellently and triggers from the handle so the workers never have to get on their knees.

The weak link in almost any system is the vacuum. An industrial vacuum should have 90 CFM (cubic feet/minute) airflow, at least 90” of static lift and a redundant filter system that includes a disposable bag as the primary filter. Dust Collection Products has industrial vacuums with these specs in three different sizes and price ranges. You can see the Nacecare Vacuum on our web page or call for tech support and options on the other similar industrial vacuums we carry.

Nuclear Power Plants, Radioactive Waste and Demolition Safety

April 17th, 2015

OSHA, EPA, Radioactive Materials and Regulatory Compliance

Demolition and Decommissioning Work at Nuclear Facilities and Superfund Sites

Affordable Dust Collection for Containing Radioactive Contaminants in Nuclear Power Plants

Nuclear-Power-Plant

Nuclear Power Plant, Radioactive Waste and Demolition Safety

Nuclear power plant demolition requires a considerable amount of planning and preparation before the project can start. Careful regard for worker safety and environment protection must be made when dealing with radioactive waste containment during demolition and decommissioning projects.

Radioactive waste is extremely hazardous to most forms of life and the environment in which they live. Radioactive waste is a byproduct produced during the extraction process of uranium or thorium for its source material content. This source material is used to produce energy used in medical devices, metabolic processes, to treat animals, mine for precious metals and in academic research.

Radioactive materials are all around us. While there are many beneficial uses for the source material found in uranium or thorium, the process itself can create some of the most harmful material known to mankind. The fact that radioactive materials can cause so much harm to both life forms and the environment increases the need for every demolition contractor to ensure worker safety and follow all EPA and OSHA regulations.

OSHA, EPA, Radioactive Materials and Regulatory Compliance

OSHA and the EPA consider radioactive materials toxic and hazardous substances that must be highly regulated. OSHA regulations involve the occupational safety and health standards of workers and EPA regulations involve protection of the environment, ecosystems and people.

Health and environmental risks posed by hazardous waste sites paved the way for the Superfund Program administered by the EPA. According to the act, various Superfund Sites contain radioactive contamination.

The goal of the Superfund is to protect human health, the environment and make responsible parties pay for the work that needs to be performed at the Superfund Sites. If you have been contracted by one of these companies to do demolition work at a Superfund Site, make sure you follow the rules carefully or you could be fined.

When doing demolition work at a nuclear facility or Superfund Site there are strict OSHA regulations that must be followed. OSHA has strict guidelines on demolition worker safety during demolitions being performed at a nuclear facility or Superfund Site.

During demolition work, contractors need to adhere to rules that involve controlling restricted and unrestricted areas, measuring hazardous waste and toxic air levels, controlling exposure to airborne radioactive materials, keeping records of exposure, taking the necessary precautions to reduce the exposure and have policies and procedures in place in the event a worker is exposed. Failure to abide by OSHA standards can result in heavy fines.

Demolition Work at Nuclear Facilities and Superfund Sites

Much of the demolition work at radioactively contaminated sites is done with hand held tools such as gas-powered cutoff saws, circular saws, grinders and needle scalers. The obvious goal is to lower the contamination levels of the debris and thereby lower the disposal cost.

Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have been slow to embrace dust collection for the majority of these tools despite heavy pressure from OSHA and EPA regulators. It is only with the recent addition of another layer of enforcement, the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule that the major tool manufacturers have begun to offer effective dust collection for their tools.

These dust collectors vary in efficiency and ease of use but one thing they all have in common is that they add considerably to the cost of the tool. Buying these expensive add-ons is a business decision for the average contractor who has to weigh the cost of the add-on against potential fines and the moral obligation to protect the worker’s health. In an industry where virtually every tool that is brought onto a radioactively contaminated site is ultimately disposed of, the cost of the OEM add-ons can be prohibitive.

Affordable Dust Collection for Containing Radioactive Contaminants in Nuclear Power Plants

Low-cost point of origin dust shrouds for grinders, saws and other hand tools have been available from independent manufacturers for over two decades. Without the burden of the national advertising campaigns run by the major manufacturers, they have come onto the market at dramatically low prices. However, because of the lack of advertising, many of these tools are not known to the industry. The following is a look at the remediation tools and accessories that are available.

Containing Radioactive Contaminants

Using the Right Vacuum

It is a common misunderstanding that efficient dust collection can be achieved without an independent vacuum. It can’t. The weak link in every dust collection system is always the vacuum. The gold standard for true industrial vacuums is 100 cubic feet per minute (CFM) airflow, static lift in excess of 90” and a disposable filter bag into which the debris is collected and subsequently disposed. With 25 years of experience behind them, Dust Collection Products has chosen the Nacecare 570 industrial vacuum as the one best matched to all their point of origin dust collectors. It has the airflow, the power and the filtration system to be compatible with any of the Dust Collection Products line of dust collectors.

Nacecare-Industrial-HEPA-VacuumContaining Radioactive Contaminants

Gas-Powered Saws

Gas-powered demolition saws such as the ones manufactured by Husqvarna, Stihl, Makita and others are the go-to tools for large demolition projects where radioactively contaminated concrete walls and floors have to be removed. The Saw Muzzle GP is designed to work in conjunction with the Nacecare 570 industrial vacuum as a complete system for the efficient, affordable removal of radioactive dusts created when demolishing large concrete structures.

Gas-Powered-SawContaining Radioactive Contaminants

Saw Muzzle Type Z

Another tool used in demolition is the Sawzall, originally by Milwaukee but now manufactured by competing brands such as Bosch, Makita, DeWalt and others. These large reciprocating saws are the tool most often when demolishing non-concrete structures such as contaminated rooms with wooden stud and plaster construction. The Saw Muzzle Type Z is a universally adaptable point of origin dust collector that will fit onto any of the large reciprocating Sawzall type saws. It affords an unobstructed view of the blade and the patented hose design allows the operator to place the pickup at the exact point of dust creation.

Saw-Muzzle-Type-ZContaining Radioactive Contaminants

Saw Muzzle Type E

A number of tool manufacturers offer 12-14” electric cutoff saws, the most popular being the Bosch. These saws are used in indoor demolition projects where gas-powered saws are not an option. The Saw Muzzle Type E is an excellent point of origin dust collector that can be adapted any of the 10-14” electric cutoff saws that are used for indoor demolition work including DeWalt, Bosch, Makita, Hitachi, Milwaukee and others.

Saw-Muzzle-Type-EContaining Radioactive Contaminants

7” Circular Saws

For demolition work where the operator is cutting less than 3” in concrete, drywall or other materials, the original Saw Muzzle is the preferred tool. The Saw Muzzle is designed to fit the Bosch and Skil left-bladed (Model 77 type) circular saws. It can also be easily adapted to the DeWalt 535 and Makita hypoid saws.

7'-Circular-SawContaining Radioactive Contaminants

Angle Grinders

The most popular dust collection shroud for grinding radioactive contaminants is the Dust Muzzle. It is lightweight, easy to install and affordable. At $25 per shroud, it is the perfect dust collector for grinding radioactive dusts to degrade (and lessen the cost of disposal) of hazardous materials. It is available in grinder specific models and universal models. If any company is using exclusively one brand of grinder it is more cost efficient to use the original Dust Muzzle. If a number of different brands are used, the universal Dust Muzzle Ultra is available for disk diameters from 4-8”.

Angle-Grinders

All Dust Collection Products dust collectors are available with an MSDS and are easily disposed of through standard incineration. They have been used at Superfund sites such as Hanford and to descale reactors such as the Nimitz at Norfolk Naval Shipyard.

All dust collectors are also available as complete systems with compatible vacuums, blades, grinders and hoses.

Pool Repair and Maintenance

Swimming pools are nice to have especially when the temperature begins to rise. Pools create a space for socializing, having fun and just to simply relax. As the summer days draw closer you want to make sure your pool is jump in ready and to do that, you may need to make a repair or two.

Pools require constant attention to keep them safe, clean and running efficiently. As the years pass by pools begin to age. Maintenance service is great for keeping pools clean, but there will be times when a swimming pool needs more then a simple cleaning.

Concrete swimming pools occasionally have cracking or chipping which is not uncommon. As the surface of your pool wears, concrete restoration work like crack repair and painting will be required to bring the life back to your swimming pool.

Surface Repairs to Concrete Swimming Pools

Pool restoration and resurfacing requires planning and surface preparation before the project can begin. Restoring the surface of a swimming pool can be something as simple as repairing cracks or it can be as complex as adding a textured pool deck coating or a decorative concrete overlay finish depending on what is needed.

Whether your pool restoration project’s goal is to create a simple functional design or to create an outdoor living space make sure you are prepared. Dust Collection Products has a complete line of point of origin dust collectors for the pool repair and maintenance trades.

Concrete Cutting Technology: Scored Concrete Floors and Saw Cutting

Making Clean, Professional Cuts in Concrete

Using the Saw Muzzle Cutting, Scoring and Cutting Faux Grout lines in Concrete

Concrete-Cutting-and-Modern-Concrete-Interiors

Decorative Saw Cutting and Safety

Concrete contractors can bring life to surface aesthetics through decorative saw cutting and scoring. A concrete floor doesn’t have to be dull or boring. By adding stain for color and grout lines for dimension a simple slab of concrete can be transformed into faux stone tile.

Decorative concrete artisans can bring out the sophistication in concrete by cutting customized patterns into the hard material or they can add a classy post-modern touch through polishing techniques.

Concrete’s design possibilities are endless. If you’re looking to modernize a home to add value or curb appeal, concrete can be enhanced in myriad ways by etching it, cutting it, staining it or pouring acid on it until the concrete has been rehabbed into something that is functional or just simply breath taking to look at. How a contractor chooses to design concrete is important, and just as important is how the contractor approaches safety during their concrete construction projects.

Concrete Technology: Scored Concrete Floors and Saw Cutting

Timeless works of concrete art can be produced through decorative saw cutting/scoring. Concrete starts out as a mixture of paste and aggregates and through a series of chemical reactions turns into the rock-like mass we know as concrete. By understanding the principals of concrete technology, a contractor can overcome concrete’s natural weakness and turn an ordinary form into a sculpted masterpiece.

Making Clean, Professional Cuts in Concrete

The intersection of perfectly defined lines during the concrete saw cutting process; can only be made through careful precision. Architecturally speaking, decorative saw cutting projects have to be accurate in their design, planning and approach.

There are many tools available for cutting patterns into concrete. Contractors can use hand held saws or special engraving tools which were specifically designed to score concrete. These tools create dramatic effects in concrete but they also create clouds of silica dust, a known health hazard that can result in silicosis of the lungs. If you need help during your next concrete saw cutting/scoring project try Dust Collection’s Saw Muzzle or their Saw Muzzle System to help keep your team safe and efficient.

Dustless Cutting Concrete with the Saw Muzzle

The Saw Muzzle has many applications for the decorative concrete trade. The Saw Muzzle can be used during floor repair, cutting faux grout lines, scoring a new slab or to prevent cracking. The most common use for the Saw Muzzle is silica dust collection, which is made while cutting expansion joints and scoring new concrete.

Using the Saw Muzzle: for Cutting, Scoring and Cutting Faux Grout lines in Concrete

When cutting faux grout lines in decorative stain patterns, the Saw Muzzle can be used with a ¼” kerf tuck pointing blade to make shallow cuts that mimic grout lines. They can then be either re-grouted or left, as they are to mimic a floor tile pattern in the decorative floor.

Saw Muzzle and Stand Up Rolling Cart for Dustless Cutting, Scoring, and Cutting Faux Grout lines in Concrete

Using the Saw Muzzle and Stand Up Rolling Cart for Longer Cuts in Concrete

When making longer cuts, the Saw Muzzle can be paired with one of the rolling carts. In some cases, up to 80,000 feet of cuts have to be made in large industrial warehouses to lay new cable for electronics. A worker cannot be on his knees for this much cutting. For these jobs the Saw Muzzle with the Stand Up Rolling Cart is the best combination to use. The Stand Up Rolling Cart accepts the Skil Model 77 Worm Drive saw and the Saw Muzzle. The operator can trigger the saw from the handle of the Rolling Cart. The Stand Up Rolling cart is made from heavy-gauge aluminum and has an excellent guide for cutting die-straight lines. The operator will never have to be on his knees.

Using the Saw Muzzle, Blade Roller  and Skate Plate for Shorter Cuts in Concrete

For shorter cuts, the Blade Roller and the Skate Plate are excellent rolling carts but the operator will not be able to work in the standing position.

Bridge Painting and Repair

March 20th, 2015

Bridge Maintenance and Rehabilitation Projects

EPA, OSHA, Waterways and Worker Safety

Using the Dust Muzzle During Bridge Repair to Collect Toxic Dust

Bride-Repair-and-Maintenance

Bridge Painting and Repair

Steel bridges can be found in many cities across the United States. Bridges are important to commerce in that they permit travel by roadway over impassable bodies of water thus making commerce possible. Preserving such an asset requires the state and federal government to paint and repair their bridges to reverse corrosion and weather deterioration.

Aging infrastructures should be every governments concern. By placing greater emphasis on annual bridge painting and repair programs we can enhance the aesthetic appeal and protect the steel bridge elements from environmental effects.

Bridge Maintenance and Rehabilitation Projects

Bridges are located in close proximity to waterways and have a high potential of discharging pollutants directly into the aquatic habitat below during construction and repair. This fact makes it necessary for every contractor to take specific steps to maintain a high level of water quality during their bridge maintenance and rehabilitation projects.

A bridge rehabilitation project may include preventative maintenance or rehabilitation work activities requiring workers to complete tasks like removing damaged paint, pressure washing, removing rust, painting structural steel, applying primer paint, resurfacing decks, repairing or replacing joints and so on. Special care and attention is required of all contractors to follow OSHA safety guidelines while adhering to the EPA’s compliance standards.

EPA, OSHA, Waterways and Worker Safety

The goal of every contractor during a bridge repair or maintenance project should be to maintain public safety, worker safety, prevent or minimize the delivery of sediment and toxic chemicals into waterways and to protect the riparian and aquatic habitat.

Most steel bridges in the U.S. are coated with lead based paints or other toxic paints that have a high potential of discharging pollutants directly into the water below during construction. The EPA requires every contractor to keep the toxic dust these materials produce out of the rivers and waterways they span. Failure to do so will result in huge fines from the EPA, or OSHA or both.

Worker safety is extremely important during bridge repair. Contractors are required to protect the safety of their workers from toxic dusts by following OSHA’s guidelines. Airborne contaminates can present a significant threat to worker safety and health. During bridge repair projects contractors must be able to identify ways to reduce toxic dusts and take any measure necessary to protect their workers from airborne contaminants produced in these types of environments. To reduce your risk, follow OSHA’s guidelines on how many PPM are allowed in the work area and use one of our Dust Muzzles to help you with toxic dust collection.

Using the Dust Muzzle During Bridge Repair to Collect Toxic Dust

The Dust Muzzle has many applications for bridge repair and painting. Dust Collection Products has three types of point of origin dust collectors that can be used to create an inexpensive dust free environment for bridge repair contractors.

How to Use the Dust Muzzle for Bridge Repairs

Repainting on steel bridges generally requires removing loose or flaking toxic paint around I-beams. Having space to work is always an issue. These beams are covered with rivets and it is difficult to get a standard 4 1/2” or 7” grinding wheel into some of these tight locations.

For working around rivets and inside corners, the needle scaler is one of the best tools for peening paint from steel surfaces. The Chip Muzzle is an excellent point of origin tool for converting the needle scaler into a dustless paint removal tool. It comes in many sizes so it can fit a wide range of inline and pistol grip pneumatic needle scalers.

The Dust Muzzle comes in diameters from 2” to 8”. It can be installed on 2″ and 3″ pneumatic die grinders for working in tight places or on the pneumatic and electric right angle 4-8” grinders when grinding on larger surfaces.

Dust Collection Products has a complete line of point of origin dust collectors for these tools. In addition to the dust collectors, Dust Collection Products carries HEPA flow vacuums, vacuum hose, hose splitters, hose Y fittings, battery powered backpack vacuums and everything needed to create a dustless grinding systems for bridge repair.

The Dust Muzzle and Chip Muzzle (all of them) can contain up to 99% of the dust when used with an industrial 2HP vacuum.

Boat Repair and Maintenance

Using the Dust Muzzle for Marine Applications

Boatyard Repair

Boat Repair and Maintenance

Virtually all motor yachts, sailboats, work boats, commercial ships and naval craft that have been built in the last 100 years are constructed of materials that, when repaired or maintained, create large amounts of toxic dusts. The materials include fiberglass, gel coat, copper based anti-fouling paint, biocide based anti-fouling paint, and epoxy paints, metallic dusts and linear polyurethane based topside paints. Dust is also created when refinishing teak decks and sanding wooden hulls.

If you own a boat, regular care is required to maintain and prolong the life of your investment. Repairs and maintenance to restore and maintain a boat could include things like resurfacing blisters that formed in the gel coat, replacing the bottom paint (with anti-fouling paint) to sanding teak decks.

Marine Composites, Fiberglass, Repair and Painting

Over the years a popular view of fiberglass boats has been that they require less maintenance and are far more durable then the wooden ones that precede them. Unfortunately, there is not a boat on the market that is maintenance free; free from the effects of the environment or forces of nature. In addition to environment and forces of nature other items like damage from a collision or groundings are some of the most common reasons why a boat might need to be repaired. Fiberglass boats however, also suffer from age related problems such as blisters that form in the gel coat. Prolonging or restoring any boat will require an understanding of how to repair and maintain it safely and effectively.

Using the Dust Muzzle for Marine Applications

The rituals of Spring Commissioning are finally here, and as countless boaters prepare for the season they have many things to think about. Whether you are dealing with having to replace the bottom paint on your boat, need to grind and repair the blisters that have formed in your gel coat or even sand your teak deck to bring back the original richness of the wood… the Dust Muzzle has many applications to help you repair and maintain your boat safely.

Replacing-Bottom-Paint

Using the Dust Muzzle During Bottom Paint Replacement

When boats are hauled out of the water for replacement of bottom paint, old paint often has to be sanded or ground off to prep the hull for new coat of paint. It is important to understand the hazards that are associated with the copper based anti-fouling paint below the water line. Copper paint is used for its effectiveness in stopping the growth of algae, the growth of coral and discouraging worms from making the bottom of your boat their new home. While copper paint has its effectiveness in protecting a boat from marine growth is also very poisonous. Copper paint is so toxic that workers have to put on a HAZMAT suit during hull preparation. Copper paint is not only highly toxic to the worker but also to the environment. It is important that you take the necessary measures to assure the paint does not get into the harbor for two reasons, 1) it will affect water quality (which the EPA regulates) and 2) if you do pollute there will be a huge fine to pay!

How to Use the Dust Muzzle for Boatyard Repairs

The original Dust Muzzle and the Dust Muzzle Ultra are excellent at containing and collecting all the airborne pollutants created in the marine repair business including fiberglass, asbestos, anti-fouling paint and wood dusts.

The Dust Muzzles will fit any pneumatic or electric 4-5” or 7-9” grinder.

When used with 4 ½ or 7” silica carbide (Zec™) wheels for blister repair jobs, they allow the operator to remove large amounts of fiberglass quickly and dust free.

When removing anti-fouling bottom paints, they can be used with a 3M or Ferro soft pad and pressure sensitive paper to collect all toxic bottom paints efficiently and with no obstruction to the worker’s view.

They are excellent for containing the wood dust when sanding and re-finishing teak decks. They allow the worker to do the work in the water without setting up booms and overboard dust collection systems.

The Dust Muzzle has the flexibility needed when working on the curved surfaces of a hull or when removing large amounts of damaged fiberglass. For steel and aluminum boats and ships, the Dust Muzzle is perfect for removing anti-fouling paint and topside paints.

For doing fine finishing work on fiberglass molds, the Dust Muzzle is also available for 2”-3” right angle die grinders. These are also useful for mold polishing and removal of toxic coatings in hard to get to places.

When cutting holes with core bits and hole saws, the Dust Muzzle DC is perfect for dustless drilling holes up to 3” in diameter.

Concrete Cutting, Grinding and Resurfacing Safety

Using the Dust Muzzle Ultra™ Heavy Duty to Collect Toxic Dust

builder working with cutting grinder on concrete

Concrete Construction Masonry Construction

Today’s builders and designers recognize the value concrete adds to their plans. Concrete binds structures together, adds support, and adds aesthetically pleasing architectural elements to a building. Concrete functions as the centerpiece to some of the most breathtaking construction projects. Masonry construction adds to that beauty by providing beautiful walls and floors made with brick and stone bound by concrete. Concrete masonry units add color, dimension, and texture to architectural stone veneers and stability to foundations. Contractors use tools like grinders and cutters to sculpt and resurface the perfect custom designs. While there are many advantages to concrete’s use, there are also disadvantages that contractors have to consider before construction begins.

Concrete Cutting, Grinding and Resurfacing Safety

The extensive use of concrete and masonry products in construction today including remodels, renovations and painting forces contractors to plan ahead. Whether a contractor is simply cutting into the floor of an older home or resurfacing a pool… it is necessary for that builder to know how the rules and regulations of OSHA affect the approach to each of their projects. Worker safety and the environment they work in are highly affected by cutting, grinding, and resurfacing techniques. Grinding surfaces like fiberglass, concrete, wood, paint and epoxies can create toxic dusts that lead to the potential exposure of hazardous substances in the air.

Using the Dust Muzzle Ultra Heavy Duty to Collect Toxic Dust

Substances like dust and fibers are found in the construction environment. Some examples of dust and fibers that are characteristic to the construction environment include silica dust also known as crystalline silica dust, asbestos fibers, metal dust, lead-based paint dust and fiberglass fibers. Issues that can arise from fiber exposure and dust exposure not only include the obvious health issues to construction workers, but also increase the likelihood the contractor may be in violation of OSHA’s rules and regulations.

Concrete Construction and Masonry Construction Worker Safety

All Dust Muzzle Dust Collectors are excellent at collecting toxic dust… they provide the tools needed to aid contractors in meeting the strict safety and compliance regulations on collecting silica dust which are set by OSHA. Silica dust is created during trip abatement, crack chasing, and during repairs on concrete structures. In addition to trip abatement on sidewalks, silica dust is also created during floor preparation for decorative stains, cutting into warehouse floors to run new sub-flooring wiring for electronics, and during the repair of pool decks. To keep your business safe and in compliance with OSHA rules and regulations use Dust Muzzle Dust Collectors for all of your construction needs… they will aid in you in your plan to keep workers safe.

Concrete Construction and Masonry Construction Protecting the Environment

Dust Muzzle Dust Collectors can also aid construction and masonry professionals with EPA compliance. EPA rules govern many things including the release of toxic pollutants into harbors and fresh waterways such as (rivers, lakes, etc.). Silica dust is an airborne and water-borne byproduct (pollutant) of construction so it is important to be aware of how your projects not only affect your workers health… but also the health of the environment in which you work. Grinding concrete on a painted bridge is an example of how this byproduct (pollutant) is created.

Concrete Construction and Masonry Construction Worker Safety and the Environment

The EPA set forth a rule known as the (RRP) just a few years ago which covers the hazards created during renovations, repairs, remodels, and painting. The rule requires that contractors test homes built prior to 1978. This rule states that the contractor must test for the presence of lead paint and if that test is positive the contractor needs to have a plan for dust collection during the remodel or while painting that home. OSHA has also determined that silica dust is the new asbestos. Silica Dust can lead to pulmonary disease such as silicosis of the lungs, which is why it is necessary for every contractor to have a dust collection plan to aid in the prevention of any hazardous substances from affecting worker’s health and the health of the environments in which they work.

With the Dust Muzzle Ultra Heavy Duty, you can contain and collect all the airborne pollutants created in the construction business including silica dust, asbestos, toxic metals, lead-based paint and fiberglass.

This new Dust Collection product is:

Dust Muzzle Ultra Heavy Duty

The Craft of Concrete Design

Concrete design possibilities are endless. Concrete is an extraordinary material used to create both texture and color… it’s a perfect medium used to express the relationships between art and craft and between contracting and architecture. Concrete can be summarized as practical, expressive, and aesthetic all at the same time. The adaptability of concrete makes it a perfect material for all areas of building and flooring. Because the malleability of concrete is so great many contractors use tools such as grinders and cutters to sculpt and repair this flexible surface. However, there is another side of concrete design that contractors and building professionals need to be aware of…

Concrete Grinding and Fiberglass Repair, and the Associated Hazards

The issue with extensive use of concrete and masonry products in building today, is the increased potential/risk of exposing construction workers to the hazardous dust particles that are typical in the cutting and grinding process. Grinding surfaces like fiberglass, concrete, wood, paint and epoxies can create toxic dusts that lead to the potential exposure of hazardous substances in the air. Substances in the form of dust or fibers that are found in the construction environment can cause immediate acute health results. Examples of dust and fibers found in the construction environment include silica dust also know as crystalline silica dust, asbestos fibers, metal dust, lead-based paint dust and fiberglass fibers. Issues that can arise from fiber exposure and dust exposure not only include the obvious health issue to construction workers, it also increase the likelihood the contractor may be in violation of not following OSHA compliant laws.
