What is Soda Blasting?

Soda blasting is a form of media blasting similar to sandblasting. It uses compressed air to blast sodium bicarbonate particles through a nozzle, gently cleaning any surfaces and substrate. Despite the name, the abrasive media used for soda blasting isn’t like the baking soda that you can buy off the shelf in a grocery store. Soda blasting uses specially granulated sodium bicarbonate that is less abrasive than the blasting media used in sandblasting. 

Why Choose Soda Blasting?

SZB is an environmentally conscious company.

As with all of our blasting media options, sodium bicarbonate is proven to be non-hazardous and environmentally safe.

It is also water soluble, providing a one-step cleaning and stripping process that efficiently removes contaminants and coatings without damaging most delicate surfaces.  

The sodium bicarbonate granules that are used in soda blasting are friable, which means that they will shatter on impact.

This makes it a much gentler media option than sand blasting, ideal for jobs where damaging the substrate or profiling the surface is not an option.

Soda blasting can also be used for the removal of smoke damage, as sodium bicarbonate is a natural deodorizer.
