Soda Blasting - Sandblasting Chicago IL
We at Sandblasting Chicago take pride in our technical knowhow and having the most modern, technologically advanced, and green equipment and methods available. Soda blasting, along with dust blasting, represents the newest and greenest sandblasting method. Soda blasting uses compressed air and a baking soda-based media to get the job done. It is also safe, having been approved by the FDA. Soda blasting is non-toxic, silica-free, non-flammable, non-hazardous, and ecofriendly.
It is an easy way to remove old paint coatings, grease, oil, gasket material, surface corrosion, carbon, and other unwanted substances from nearly any material, such as metals, alloys, plastics, and others. All of this is accomplished without causing damage to the material.
What is Soda Blasting?
Given that it’s a relatively newer technology and has an odd name, many of you may be wondering what soda blasting is exactly. Since sand is more often not actually used in sandblasting, other media are more frequently employed. Soda’s first successful utilization was a then revolutionary moment for the industry, where New York engineers were tasked with sandblasting the copper plates of the Statue of Liberty in a non-damaging way in 1972.
Soda blasting achieved this. Soda blasting is a high volume, low pressure method that can be either wet or dry. When the soda media is introduced to the surface, the sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is activated to explode, gently releasing energy to clean the surface without harm.
Safe and Ecofriendly
Soda blasting is clean. It is completely free of toxic chemicals that have conventionally been used for heavy-duty surface cleaning processes. It does not produce thermal sparks of overheating. Is also water-soluble. All of these safety benefits also translate to an eco-friendly sandblasting solution.
