Soda-Tec’s soda blasting is a non-toxic, non-abrasive and environmentally friendly way of cleaning, stripping and degreasing almost any coating from any surface without causing damage to the original surface.
Soda blasting can be applied to surfaces such as wood, masonry, glass, fibreglass, stone, brick, rubber, most plastics and all metals. Soda blasting is a great method of removing paint, graffiti, antifoul, soot, dirt, oil and grease from the most sensitive materials and restoring surfaces back to their original condition.
Unlike sand blasting and chemical cleaning, which is toxic, slow and abrasive, the soda blasting process is completely environmentally friendly and leaves the original surface fresh and clean with no damage.
Blast material is specially formulated sodium bicarbonate (baking soda); a non-toxic, non-hazardous food-grade material that is 100% water soluble and environmentally friendly. Soda blasting works by propelling sodium bicarbonate particles, via compressed air, onto the area to be cleaned. Soda blast particles remove surface contaminate by the energy released as the particles explode when pressure-driven into contact with the contaminate surface. The resulting release of energy disrupts the contaminate surface – thus leaving the original surface completely unaffected.
