Behold the awesome cleaning power of a 1,000-watt laser cleaner.
To give you an idea of how powerful this laser cleaner is, P-Laser’s low-power cleaners are 10 to 100 watts, making this one 100 times more powerful than its weakest laser.
Here’s how the laser cleaning process works:
Contaminated layers, including rust, absorb the laser energy while the base material — often steel, aluminum, wood, or plastic — reflects most of the energy. The laser is short-pulsed, meaning it is comparable to small bullets of light, shooting at about 200,000 pulses per second. When these light bullets hit the absorbing layer, two things can happen. Either the base material stays cold and the absorbing layer heats up, causing the contaminant to crimp off the base material, or the contaminant heats up causing a plasma to build around the working area, resulting in evaporation.
