Soda blasting is a mild form of abrasive blasting in which sodium bicarbonate particles are blasted against a surface using compressed air. It has a much milder abrasive effect than sandblasting. Soda Blasting is a non-destructive method for many applications in cleaning, paint and varnish stripping, automotive restoration, industrial equipment maintenance, graffiti removal, oil removal, masonry cleaning and restoration, soot remediation, boat hull cleaning, and food processing facilities and equipment
Gentle on Surfaces
Because sodium bicarbonate shatters on impact, it is much gentler than sandblasting or media blasting. It is suitable for use in chrome, plastics, and even glass. Sodium bicarbonate particles clean and strip the surface by means of releasing energy. When the particles are blasted via compressed air onto a surface, the energy released by the exploding or crushed particles will lift any contaminate on the surface and leave the substrate clean. This unique process is non-abrasive and does not damage the underlying surface like another blasting process that uses abrasive media, making it perfect for all types of surfaces.
Perfect for cleaning engines
Soda Blasting is the perfect solution for cleaning car engines as it breaks down hydrocarbons which makes it perfect for cleaning engines and also degreasing engines and engine parts, it will safely remove any buildup without causing damage to the surface, all seals, hoses, etc can stay connected without fear of damage.
Perfect for Commercial Kitchens
Soda Blasting breaks down hydrocarbons through a process which is called Saponification, this process makes it ideal for cleaning commercial kitchen equipment in the food processing industry that is covered in fatty food build-ups or baked-on residues. Importantly as the sodium bicarbonate used is 100% food-grade quality, it is nontoxic, it can be safely used in these environments without fear of any health concerns. All equipment can be rinsed off with water after the cleaning process, as the soda is water-soluble it will just dissolve away.
What Else Can Soda Blasting Work On
Soda Blasting can be used for cleaning timber, wood, oak beams, oak floors, doors, stairs & banisters, cars, boat hulls, masonry, and food processing equipment. Soda Blasting can be used to remove graffiti and to clean structural steel. Soda Blasting is also very effective for mould and fire or smoke damage cleanup as it cleans and deodorises.
