Not all graffiti occurs on objects standing still. In cities across the nation, public transportation is often the target of vandals, youths and rogue street artists.
Not only is it dangerous and a liability, but graffiti on our public transportation affects a city negatively to residents and tourists. In many cases, it displays a lack of proper security to the public. For these reasons it is critical for city officials to work on Refurbishing Public Transportation to remove graffiti quickly. State and local officials work hard to present a clean and friendly environment, and IBIX USA provides the equipment to get the job done.
Refurbishing Public Transportation: Trains and Railcars
Trains in particular are targeted by graffiti vandals. They are frequently taken out of commission while cleaning takes place. Our goal at IBIX USA is to shorten that time as much as possible. Our industrial strength abrasive blasting equipment is specifically designed to clean paint and unwanted markings from a surface without harming the metal. IBIX blasting systems make the job easy and quick.
IBIX USA not only provides abrasive cleaning solutions for the rail industry, but our Spartacus Flame Coating system is ideal for railcar interiors as well. Adding a new coating to the interior of a railcar allows a car to be used for anew services. For example, if you need to change a car’s from hauling sand to carrying plastic, adding a premium coating from IBIX USA WILL get the job done and help extend the life of any rail car.
Refurbishing Public Transportation: Public Buses
While graffiti doesn’t hit city buses as often as trains, it still occurs. However, more concerning is the element of rust and the repairs associated with public buses.
Hand sanding is often used as a treatment to rust issues on city buses and refurbishing public transportation. The problem is that hand sanding is time consuming as well as harmful to the metal on the bus. Hand sanding removes rust and clean metal particles making the surface more susceptible to damage and oxidization.
IBIX USA’s portable blasting systems are designed to remove rust elements without removing or harming the metal. Blasting the metal surfaces help reduce labor costs and reduces the time a bus needs to be taken out of commission for repairs. Your buses are placed back in service in a matter of hours instead of days.
