Baking Soda Blasting - a rising star
What is baking soda blasting?
A new-comer to the world of abrasive blasting, baking soda blasting has established its efficiency in multiple fields such as fire damage restoration and historic restoration.
Baking soda, scientifically known as sodium bicarbonate is one of the gentlest medium in the blasting world. As a result, soda blasting is applicable on more delicate surfaces such as canvas, fabric, plastic and sometimes glass when properly applied. Baking soda is an environmental-friendly solution as it is biodegradable, non-toxic and water-soluble.
How does soda blasting actually work?
When baking soda was blasted out of the equipment and releases a strong impact upon direct contact with the targeted surface. This impact provides energy to effectively remove stain or paint from the surface.
Because baking soda is such a soft medium, it is able to provide enough energy for paint stripping and stain removal, without “burning into” the surface as long as the application is appropriate.
