Soda Blast Media - Maintenance M - 50# Bags is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended! I have a nice bead blasting cabinet that I use frequently. However, during a recent engine rebuild, I wanted some abrasive that wouldn't find its way into the new engine or damage delicate parts. I bought a very inexpensive siphon gun, similar to that which is included in Eastwood's Soda Blast Intro Kit; and used that, in conjunction with a five gallon bucket as my blast outfit. It is fantastic. It did a beautiful job on a carburetor and an aluminum distributor housing. It also does a terrific job on plated stamped sheet metal parts, such as brackets and vacuum motors and such. It cleans them up -- good as new -- without harming the original plating. I expect to use my simple soda blasting rig often. It's so easy to just set it up in the driveway, and there's no mess. The spent soda just rinses away. I was concerned about the cost, but my two bags of soda should last quite a while; and Eastwood's price, including shipping, was the lowest that I was able to find.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for Paint Removal This is really good media for the removal of paint without having to remove glass or trim, but if you run into bondo or plastic filler, this ain't gonna get it done. You will need at least 10 bags or more to do a normal sized car so be prepared. I continue to order this stuff but use it only for paint stripping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from outstanding If you do one part with this unit and media, it has paid for itself, all the rest you will do is gravy. It is however very adictive, once you have it out to do a part, you find yourself blasting some rusty tools, deck furnature etc. I am very pleased

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Good I'm not a professional but I think this product works pretty good. It removes paint without effecting the parent material and it will do a good job on light rust. I blasted a motorcycle frame with about 25lbs.

Will soda alone strip paint on a frame or automobile body?  How is it taking graffiti off on concrete or brick?  Once the soda is shot can it be left on the ground?

Asked by: wjzak
Soda's basis is that it will only strip down paints and residues/biproducts etc. So yes it will strip paint on a frame, slowly, and it will be able to clean up brick/concrete easily. Yes the soda is environmentally safe.

Will this remove stain from wood trim?

Asked by: Nkl1077
It will remove a lot of coatings off of many different surfaces, but it will depend entirely on the exact coating, how thick it is (or how deep the stain has soaked in) and how much pressure is used. A lot of times any media blasting will mar wood surfaces because of how soft the wood is overall.

About Soda Blast Media - Maintenance M - 50# Bags

Maintenance M Soda Blast Media is formulated with sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) which is a natural, water soluble, inorganic compound with a soft crystalline structure that makes it an ideal, mild abrasive. The media can be used to clean and remove virtually any coating from almost any substrate. This media contains a premium moisture control system, which coats each crystal, making it almost completely waterproof. Least aggressive Sodium Bicarbonate media we sell.


150-micron grit size. "Moisture guard" additive eliminates the clumping and sporadic flow typical of competitors’ products. Use this media for removal of old enamels and lacquer coatings.

Use with 50096 110-lb. Soda Blaster or our 50095 Soda Blaster. The soda media will remove urethane, epoxies, enamels and lacquer top coats, along with virtually every primer for automotive and marine use. Use soda to strip coatings from fiberglass from auto and boats, and even blast and prep wheels for paint without dismounting the tire! Note: Soda alone will not remove rust. You will need to use our abrasive medias for heavy rust removal. Use our 50494 Rust Remover Bicarbonate Soda with 20% Aluminum Oxide for rust and corrosion removal.
