Urbans Garage - Estonia

Urbans Garage
Tartu, Estonia
Aquablast 1215
Case study overview

Urbans Garage based in Tartu, Estonia specialise in the restoration of Porsche 365s and 911s. Before they purchased the Aquablast machine, Urbans Garage used a dry blasting cabinet. This produced a lot of dust and was very time consuming to achieve the results they were looking for.

After looking into the wetblasting process, Urbans Garage from Estonia purchased one of Vixens most popular machines the Aquablast 1215 to restore car parts. The Vixen Aquablast uses wet blasting technology to blast a wide variety of parts for various applications.

This machine has been designed to blast and degrease components so they look brand new. The Aquablast can remove rust, paint, and scale and can clean off dies and moulds. Urbans Garage opted for the medium sized machine to make sure a wide variety of parts could fit inside the cabinet.

Simm from Urbans Garage, Estonia said:

“The machine has given us an opportunity to clean the details quickly and get the surface finish desired. The possibility to adjust the pressure enables us to clean metals and even interior leather details.”

“We use the machine to clean a lot of different details from our projects, starting from metal details to plastics and even interior leather details. The machine gave us the surface we were looking for and also cleans perfectly.”

“The Aquablast Cabinet has been very useful in our business. It has made the cleaning times quicker and the overall results are a lot better than before using the dry blasting cabinet. In that way we have had the chance to pay more attention to other details on the projects and give the customers even better results.”

“The communication with Vixen has been very good and the service received has been quick.”
