What is BAKING SODA BLASTING?
In the past, the only way you could remove paint or other unsightly materials from a contaminated surface, was to chip it off, sand it, use harsh chemicals or sand blast it. Now there is BAKING SODA BLASTING! 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. Baking 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 machine uses a high volume of compressed air to deliver bicarbonate of soda-blasting media (baking soda) onto the surface to be cleaned. The baking soda is a crystalized commercial grade form. Unlike our competitors we use absolutely pure baking soda with no flow additives which could contaminate the surface and cause paint failure. Similar in concept to sand blasting, Baking 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. 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.
This is an example of what a vehicle looks like half stripped. The process is precise enough to control where the stripping stops. This is helpful in situations where the vehicle is not going under complete restoration.
This example of a Mustang hood half stripped is to show how precise the blasting can be.
