Soda Blasting

Soda blasting, quick, safe & cost-effective

Soda blasting is a revolutionary cleaning technology that is extremely safe, quick to carry out & cost-effective. It’s also environmentally friendly, which is why this non-destructive cleaning process is fast becoming the preferred method for cleaning contaminants from an array of surfaces.

How does it work? It’s very simple, using specially formulated granules of natural bicarbonate of soda & blasts of controlled compressed air the particles ‘explode’ (crush) on contact with the surface the mild abrasive action allows it to lift any contaminant off a surface.

It can easily remove years of built up pollution, residues or coatings from virtually any interior, exterior or even some components without causing damage.

At RM Specialist Blast Cleaning we generally use this Soda Blasting technology in industries such as:

  • Residential environments
  • Commercial property cleaning
  • Transport & Marine

RM Specialist Blast Cleaning covers the whole of the UK.

Because we can't control where our next job is coming from, we made a decision a long, long time ago that our services must cover the whole of the UK & more. We are proud of our nationwide coverage & are eager for you to put it to the test.
Our teams regularly work in Leeds, York, Sheffield & the rest of Yorkshire right down to London, the South West & all the way back up to Scotland. Just get in touch & we will dispatch one of our teams to your location wherever you are in the UK.

Soda blasting is a process in which sodium bicarbonate is applied against a surface using compressed air. Soda blasting is a non-destructive method for many applications in cleaning, paint stripping, car restoration, industrial equipment maintenance, rust removal, graffiti removal, molecular steel passivation against rust, oil removal by saponification and translocation, masonry cleaning and restoration, soot remediation, boat hull cleaning and for food processing facilities and equipment.
Soda Blasting is a process that can strip almost any surface in an efficient and safe manner. Although it is similar to traditional sandblasting, it has the significant advantage of cleaning the surface without causing harm to the substrate or the environment. Soda Blasting easily removes paint, coatings, carbon, grease, oils, gasket material and surface corrosion from a variety of metals, alloys, plastics and composites without substrate damage or distortion. Soda Blasting leaves hard anodized coatings intact.Soda Blasting is the latest, greenest technology to safely clean nearly any surface.
The Soda Blasting machine uses a high volume of compressed air to deliver bicarbonate of soda-blasting media (baking soda) onto the surface to be cleaned. The baking soda is a crystalized commercial grade form. Unlike our competitors we use absolutely pure baking soda with no flow additives which could contaminate the surface and cause paint failure. Similar in concept to sand blasting, Baking Soda Blasting is much kinder and gentler to the underlying surface and the environment.The process is gentle enough to remove the coating without harming the substrate.
Virtually any coating can be removed from most any surface. Soda blast media is FDA approved, non-toxic, and contains no free silica: it is non-sparking, non-flammable, non-hazardous, and environmentally safe.

Applications

Sodablasting can be used for cleaning cars, boat hulls, masonry, and food processing equipment. Sodablasting can also be used to remove graffiti[2] and to clean structural steel. Soda blasting is very effective for mold and fire/smoke damage cleanup as it cleans and deodorizes.

Equipment

soda blaster is a self-contained system that includes a blast generator, high pressure compressed air, moisture decontamination system, blast hose, and a blast nozzle. The blast nozzle in sodablasting applications is not a typical wear part, as a result nozzles can be ceramic or metal, such as tungsten carbide. The blasting material consists of formulated sodium bicarbonate (also known as baking soda). Blasting soda is an extremely friable material that has micro fragmentation on impact, literally exploding away surface materials without damage to the substrate.
