Laser ablation is an excellent method to restore antiques due to our ability to fine tune the laser strength providing unmatched results when compared to legacy restoration methods. As a general rule of thumb, anything metallic should be a great application.
Given that metals are reflective, the laser tends to only interact with surface contamination as opposed to the substrate when properly tuned. Proper use will negate warping of thin or delicate metals while producing a clean surface that is dry.
All contaminates can be captured with fume extraction. Laser is a precise, safer and eco-friendly alternative to traditional methods.
