What is Soda Blasting?
Soda Blasting is a method of abrasive blasting that uses baking soda as the media.
Why choose soda blasting over conventional abrasive blasting?
- Soda blasting is safe to use on metal, fiberglass and more
- Cleans and degreases; removes paint without damaging or warping metal
- Leaves a protective film that protects against flash rust for up to 3 weeks
- Does not require you to mask-off glass or chrome
- Soda blasting is the environmentally "green" way to blast
- Cleans up easily with a garden hose
Strip and clean anything without chemicals!
Remove layers of paint from any surface...it'll look like it was never painted! Once you've finished blasting, a film is left on the surface that prevents flash rust from setting-in for up to 3 weeks (store your bare metal project in a dry environment). Soda blasting is safe for your project and for you; environmentally safe.
Using soda media, you can blast: • complete vehicle bodies • engine components • transmissions • glass • bearing housings • entire underhood area and more...without fear of component damage!
Use bicarbonate soda (baking soda) blast media to safely strip paint from cars, trucks, motorcycles, aircraft aluminum, and more. Bicarbonate soda removes heavy-duty oils and grease from engines and floors. You can remove graffiti and grime from brick, concrete, limestone, granite, and other surfaces. Additional applications range from stripping delicate substrates to architectural and industrial cleaning, to paint stripping and corrosion removal. Use to remove mold and mildew stains from pools, cement, brick, tile, granite, sound stucco, siding and more.

How to prepare a surface for coatings after soda blasting
Soda blasting leaves a metal surface as clean and smooth as the day it was stamped at the factory. Not only is there no damage from heat warping as with abrasive blasting, but you also have a nice, smooth, factory-new surface to work on. No danger or mess from chemical strippers, and no weeks of hard labor from hand-sanding. You can blast over sound chrome, glass and rubber with virtually no effect on them. It's also great for damage-free paint removal on fiberglass too. Easy to clean up; after all, it's only baking soda.
Soda media leaves behind a thin film of pulverized baking soda on the bare metal surface; that in itself acts as a protective film to prevent flash rust for a month or longer if kept inside and dry.
Prior to painting, you must remove this pulverized baking soda film, a step often forgotten by users. The correct method of doing this is to blow-out any crevices or seams with a strong stream of compressed air. Then, using a clean cloth dampened (not soaked) in a bucket of hot, soapy water, wipe the surface, removing the soda film. Rinse and wring the cloth frequently. When done, repeat the process with fresh, clean water, rinsing and wringing the cloth frequently.
After completion, follow the factory's example and apply a surface-etching solution such as Eastwood Fast Etch and you will have a surface that's ready to coat.
