What is Laser Cleaning?

Laser cleaning, also known as Laser Ablation is a process that utilizes the energy from a laser beam to remove contaminants and impurities from various surfaces. It is a non-contact, highly efficient, and eco-friendly method of cleaning that leaves no residue and minimizes the risk of damage to the substrate.

Laser cleaning has a wide range of applications, including removing rust, paint, grease, and other coatings from metal surfaces, cleaning delicate cultural artifacts and historic sites, and removing fouling from the hulls of ships. The technology is especially useful in industries where traditional cleaning methods are not effective or where the use of chemicals and abrasives is not desirable.

With its numerous benefits and versatility, laser cleaning has become an increasingly popular solution for industries and businesses looking for a cleaner and more efficient way to maintain their surfaces.


  • How does laser cleaning work?

    Laser cleaning works according to the principle of pulsed laser ablation. We add a lot of energy to the surface in the form of light in a very short period of time (nanoseconds). The light will be absorbed by the contaminant and will reflect on the substrate. In between the substrate and the contaminant, a layer of gas will be created which pushes the contaminant away from the substrate. Minimal evaporation is possible. The combination of these processes is called ablation.

  • Which materials can be cleaned with a laser?

    The results are particularly good with metal substrates, with a variety of alloys, such as aluminum, machine carbon steel, copper, stainless steel, etc. Mineral substrates like stone and concrete can be cleaned as well, but the results will differ depending on the contaminant. Wood and other heat-absorbing materials like plastic are not recommendable.

  • Which substances can be removed with laser cleaning?

    We can remove a lot of organic and anorganic substances with a laser, such as grease, oxide, coatings (paint), etc. Do you have a specific question or a challenging project? Send us your case via [email protected], chances are that we already have experience with your problem!

  • Does laser cleaning damage the substrate?

    No, one of the big advantages of laser cleaning is that it doesn’t damage the substrate when used correctly. You can clean your delicate and expensive substrates without having to worry.

  • Does laser cleaning heat up the substrate?

    Laser cleaning will slightly heat up the substrate, but this heating up will be minimal, since a pulsed laser beam is used for laser cleaning. The pulses of light are so short that the substrate doesn’t heat up, or only heats up slightly (depending on the material of the substrate of course).

  • Does laser cleaning leave behind waste residue?

    No. Laser cleaning does not generate secondary waste. The results are so clean, that we can remove visible finger prints from stainless steel!

  • Is laser cleaning harmful to the environment?

    No, not at all. Laser cleaning works with pure light, and does not add harmful chemicals to the process. No secondary waste is created like with sand blasting, where the sand that is used to clean is contaminated, and needs to be cleaned up afterwards. With laser cleaning, the contamination that is released is immediately captured and collected, and can be safely deposited afterwards. The amount of waste is therefore minimal.
