Removing Bitumen is notoriously difficult as it is an extremely stubborn substance. Unless the process is carried out carefully it can often damage the surface it is being removed from. Removing Bitumen can be done through a lot of elbow grease and a scrubbing brush. However, Hydroblast can remove bitumen using high pressure hot water jetting and a careful choice of pressure levels and nozzles.

Bitumen. also known as Asphalt, is an incredibly useful material which is used in a wide range of places. However bitumen is a very stubborn material, this makes it great for surfaces however not so great for being able to remove.

There are many methods which people use to try to remove bitumen however most of these methods require a lot of patience and elbow grease – often ending in very poor results.
