Soda blasting can be used to remove surface contaminants and coatings by using soda blast media (sodium bicarbonate – baking soda). Compressed air is used to propel particles against the surface to be cleaned. When the sodium bicarbonate particles connect with the surface, it removes the contaminant or coating. Blasting with sodium bicarbonate is a nondestructive process. The soda blasting can be done in open air, booth or cabinet.
