VDOT’s Laser Coating Removal Research

The Virginia Department of Transportation is conducting research investigating the efficacy of using high-wattage lasers for removing coatings from existing bridges. High-wattage, hand-held lasers are now commercially available at costs that have increased their potential value for use in removing coatings on bridges. The objective of this project is to determine the feasibility of using high-wattage lasers to remove coatings from VDOT bridges.
