Soda Blasting - What Is It?
Before Soda Blasting arrived on the scene, the only way you could remove paint, remove rust or some other unsightly material from a contaminated surface, was to either chip it off, sand it, use harsh chemicals or sand blast it. Now there is SODA BLASTING. Soda Blasting, sometimes referred to as baking soda blasting, is a process that can strip almost any surface in an efficient and safe manner. Although it is similar to traditional sandblasting, it has the significant advantage of cleaning the surface without causing harm to the substrate or the environment. Soda Blasting easily removes paint, coatings, carbon, grease, oils, gasket material and surface corrosion from a variety of metals, alloys, plastics and composites without substrate damage or distortion. Soda Blasting leaves hard anodized coatings intact.
Soda blasting is the latest, greenest technology to safely strip paint and/or clean nearly any surface. The Soda Blasting equipment uses compressed air to deliver bicarbonate of soda-based media ( baking soda) onto the surface to be cleaned. Similar in concept to sand blasting, Soda Blasting is much kinder and gentler to the underlying surface and the environment.
The process is gentle enough to remove the coating without harming the substrate. Soda blasting is most commonly used for rust removal and paint removal but virtually any coating can be removed from most any surface. Soda blast media is FDA approved, non-toxic, and contains no free silica: it is non-sparking, non-flammable, non-hazardous, and environmentally safe.
