Cactus Surface Preparation technology and steel and concrete repair Composites and Coatings are specifically formulated to repair and protect equipment in the offshore Oil and Gas industry, performing in the most demanding operating conditions.

With its light weight (1.1kg / 2.4lb) and ATEX approval, the Bristle Blaster pneumatic is the ideal Surface Preparation tool for Operations & Maintenance and Decommissioning projects on offshore installations, vessels, offshore wind turbine structures when Health, Safety and Environmental regulations mean conventional grit blasting is not feasible.

Our Composites and Coatings solutions ensure erosion and corrosion protection and UV, fire and chemical resistance for operating equipment and structures facing various temperatures and pressures.

Our rapid curing technologies ensure the most effective and efficient application and repair processes that extend component life. Cactus solutions reduce downtime and labour costs while eliminating the need for equipment replacement.

Surface preparation is the essential first step in repairing and protecting equipment and structures.

At Cactus we’re dedicated to providing you with the tools which will allow you to prepare surfaces to the highest possible standards of cleanliness and roughness.

We’re the sole official UK and Ireland distributor of Monti technology – patented surface preparation tools for the removal of corrosion, mill scale and coatings – that operate without the hassle and mess associated with conventional grit blasting:

  • Creates a surface cleanliness equivalent to SA 2.5 (SSPC-SP 10, near white metal blast cleaning)
  • Creates surface texture / anchor profile up to 120µm (Rz) / 4.72 mils
  • Environmentally friendly surface preparation; does not use or generate hazardous materials
  • Removes the need for enclosures, reprocessing or disposal of grit
  • Effective solution for surface preparation in confined spacing.

Our superior service and technical support provides bespoke end-to-end solutions and ensures you get the most out of our innovative technology.
