About Heavy-Duty Portable Soda Pressure Blaster
Soda blasting removes paint without harming sheet metal, glass or chrome using your air compressor (this model requires 18 cfm at 80 psi). This soda blaster provides a big 100-lb. capacity and includes a long 25' blast hose with deadman valve; all-steel welded, top-loading hopper; pressure gauge. Rolls easily to job site on two wheels. Simple bolt-together assembly will have you blasting in about 45 minutes. Made in USA.
You can also use bicarbonate soda blast media (NOT household baking soda) to remove graffiti and grime from brick, concrete, limestone, granite and other surfaces. Other uses included cleaning of delicate substrates; architectural and industrial cleaning; paint stripping; corrosion removal. Use to remove mold and mildew stains from pools, cement, brick, tile, granite, sound stucco, siding and more. Safely strip paint from aircraft aluminum, trucks, motorcycles. Bicarbonate soda also allows heavy-duty removal of oils and grease from engines and floors.
Strip an entire car in about 8 to 12 hours with eight to twelve 50-lb. boxes of soda.
Can be used with 3/32" or 1/8" ceramic nozzles (see "Accessories" tab).

(Q) Why use bicarbonate soda media?
(A) Soda will not harm glass, plastics, fiberglass or chrome surfaces. It's used to remove paint coatings from the vehicle surface without etching the surface or warping the metal like more aggressive media would. It's the best way to strip fiberglass Corvettes, boats or aftermarket hoods. Also used to remove paint from urethane and SMC-type bumper fascias.
Bicarbonate soda blasting is much safer than traditional abrasives, and more gentle to the metal or substrate you're blasting. However, you must still protect yourself from the dust and, more importantly, the particles of paint, corrosion or scale that become airborne during the blasting operation.
Use a properly fitted dust mask or respirator, safety glass or safety shield, plus heavy gloves, long pants and a long-sleeve shirt to protect exposed skin. Use our 50097 Soda-Blasting Protection Kit for complete protection.
Do not aim the nozzle anywhere other than the substrate you are blasting.
Make sure you disconnect the air line and allow the tank to bleed pressure before opening the fill cap.
Check the condition of the nozzle after every hour of blasting and replace once wear is visible or the blast stream becomes ineffective.
Before each use, inspect the tank for any signs of corrosion. Make sure the rubber hoses are not dry-rotted, cracked, split or show any other signs of wear or abrasion from use or storage. Do not use the unit until damage components are repaired. Call Eastwood at 800-544-5118 for replacement components.
Make sure the deadman valve is operating properly by depressing the valve lever and releasing; it must close over the nozzle under its own spring pressure. If not, do not use the deadman valve until the spring or obstruction is repaired.
Only use fresh Eastwood-brand Bicarbonate Soda Media to assure trouble-free blasting and quick paint removal.
