Face it. Degreasing metal, removing graffiti, stripping paint — no matter what cleaning needs to be done in your work process, it’s difficult, time consuming, and often, frustratingly, must be repeated.

Soda Blast may change all that!

How Soda Blast Works

Soda blasting is a method of removing surface contaminants and coatings by using sodium bicarbonate (baking soda). Compressed air from specialized blasting machine propel particles against the surface to be cleaned. As the sodium bicarbonate particles come in contact with the surface, it removes the contaminant or coating. The sodium bicarbonate and blasting machine work in unison to perform this removal process in a nondestructive manner. The soda blasting is usually done in open air, booth or cabinet.


Benefits

  • Sodium bicarbonate is a environmentally friendly, water soluble material that can remove contaminants and coatings efficiently normally without damaging delicate substrates.
  • Because it is relatively soft, 2.5 on Mohs hardness scale, it is the ideal media for many substrates.
  • As in any blast application it is recommended a test strip be blasted to make sure soda blast is the appropriate blast media for the application.
  • Can be used for re-manufacturing and re-furbishing

Physical Composition of Soda Blast

Natrium soda consists of granular sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) formulated for various soda blast applications. Each formulation consists of sodium bicarbonate particles, uniform in size, that exhibit the flow characteristics needed for productive soda blasting.
