Soda blasting is a relatively new technology in the field of abrasive blasting. While it is technically used as an abrasive, many professionals in the field consider soda blasting non-abrasive.
Specially granulated sodium bicarbonate is applied at high pressure upon a surface, to remove contaminants or smooth the surface.
Because sodium bicarbonate shatters on impact, it is much gentler than sandblasting or media blasting. It is suitable for use upon chrome, plastics and even glass if applied correctly. Soda is also used to a lesser extent to remove mould and smoke damage, as sodium bicarbonate is a natural deodorizer.
Soda Blasting is relatively environmentally friendly as it is water soluble and will not build up in soil or residential areas.
