Soda Blasting Applications
Soda blasting has many applications. Click on a category below for more information.
Baking Soda Blasting does not produce heat like abrasive blasting; therefore it cannot heat up and distort sheet metal. It will not harm Glass, Chrome or Rubber products. It effectively removes paint, body filler, undercoating, seam sealer and etc. without damaging the substrate. Sodablasting leaves a coating on the metal that will inhibit flash rusting. This coating will need to be pressure washed off before applying any coating. Please contact your local distributor for further information on this process.
Soda Blasting will remove anti-fouling bottom paint from boats without damaging the gel coat. It will also strip the out drives without damaging the aluminum and will not harm any water pump components should it get into the passage ways. Baking soda is water soluble.
Removes gross, dried food, etc., leaving a 99.9% bacteria-free surface without any damage to the finish of chrome-plated and stainless steel fixtures and polypropylene.
Fire / Smoke Remediation
Baking Soda Blasting is the preferred choice in removing smoke damage on wood, concrete, tiles, metal, etc. as it not only cleans these substrates back to either new or pre-fire condition, but absorbs the odor during the process.
