PrestiVac Dustless Sanding Vacuums are specifically designed to safely vacuum the hazardous dust generated during surface preparation, coating removal and body repair in the aerospace and automotive industry. Dustless sanding Vacuums minimize contamination issues and increase production quality. Absolute HEPAPlus* filtration captures all of the hazardous dust, protecting the operator and the environment from exposure to a variety of hazardous dusts including Aluminum, Barium, Cadmium, Carbon Fibers, Ceramic, Fiberglass, Heavy Metals, Hexavalent Chromium, lead, magnesium, mold, strontium, Titanium, and Zinc, etc.

PrestiVac explosion proof/dust ignition proof vacuums are designed to safely vacuum explosive, combustible conductive* dusts. Our explosion proof/dust ignition proof vacuums are completely grounded and static dissipating because they are built entirely with non-sparking metals and do not have any painted components so there is no risk of fire or explosion from a spark or static build up. Compressed Air-Operated Vacuums do not have any electrical components that can overheat and be a source of ignition. Our explosion proof vacuums comply with NFPA 484 guidelines and are an effective tool for good housekeeping practise as per OSHA.
