  • Soda Blast Media-Maintenance XL-50lb Bag

I recently purchased a truck with a fiberglass utility box  I want to remove some lettering from the previous owner what is best as I do not want to damage the surface

Asked by: James1952
Soda blasting is ideal for removing paint without damaging the substrate. Even though it's far gentler than other forms of media blasting, it's going to be destructive to the painted surface. In order to remove lettering and the associated glue or residue from your paint, I'd suggest first using a combination of a heat gun and an eraser wheel to remove the majority of the unwanted material. Once heated, most vinyl letting will lift right off. Use the eraser wheel for any tough spots. http://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-2000w-heat-gun-with-lcd-display.html http://www.eastwood.com/vinyl-eraser-and-arbor.html With most of the lettering and residue gone, switch to a solvent like PRE Painting Prep or even lacquer thinner to remove the rest of the remaining residue.

(Q) What will soda abrasive remove?
(A) Removes urethane, epoxies, enamels and lacquer top coats along with virtually every primer for automotive and marine use. Also strips coatings from fiberglass on vehicles and boats, and even blasts and preps wheels for paint without dismounting the tire.

(Q) What won't soda remove?
(A) Soda alone will not remove rust. Use our 50494 Soda and Aluminum Oxide Blend that's specially formulated for rust and corrosion removal.


Use a properly fitted dust mask or respirator, safety glasses or safety shield, plus heavy gloves, long pants and a long-sleeve shirt to protect exposed skin. Get our 50097 Safety Kit for complete protection. Make sure the deadman valve is operating properly by depressing the valve lever and releasing; the nozzle should close under its own spring pressure. If not, do not use the deadman valve until the spring or obstruction is repaired.
