Alok -- 

I cannot provide first-hand experience on this approach to surface
preparation.  However, a local technology vendor, Flow International, here
in the Seattle area, markets their water jet technologies for surface prep
applications (among others).  Their website has a small amount of
information covering this application at:
(http://www.flowcorp.com/html/surface_preparation.htm) but I suspect you'd
need to contact the company for detailed technical information regarding
application criteria, performance specs, etc.   Their contact info is on
their web site, or you can contact them at:

	Flow International Corporation

	Kent, Washington, 98032  USA
	Phone: 253/850-3500
