Soda blasting is extremely effective at cleaning all types of surfaces, from stripping paint to degreasing engines and so much more.
The process involves using a coarse grade of Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda) and blasting this onto a surface using compressed air. The Soda used is the same purity as common baking soda found in many homes, it is essentially the same apart from slightly courser particle sizes. Due to its non-toxic and non hazardous properties, Sodblasting is one of the most environmentally friendly processes for cleaning surfaces. In addition the process of soda blasting does not damage the underlying surface of any material, due to its non abrasive properties and low pressure application.
Soda Blasting is an excellent degreasing agent, there is no pre-degreasing needed, the removal of seals or bearings is not necessary. As there is no heat generated during the process and bicarbonate of soda is non corrosive there will be no warping or pitting of material.
The applications for this cleaning process are endless, from stripping paint off cars, brickwork, bitumen, concrete, wood, glass or simply degreasing an engine!
As the material is 100% food grade baking soda and is non-hazardos, the process of soda blasting is also very useful in the commercial kitchen or catering industry, where it can be used to clean cooking equipment safely.
