Sodablasting and Sandblasting

Sodablasting has a much milder abrasive effect than sandblasting. Sandblasting is also called abrasive blasting which is the process of applying an abrasive material such as sand, to an object at high pressure. Sodablasting on the other hand is technically used as an abrasive but many professionals consider soda blasting non-abrasive. Sandblasting is more suited to heavy industry.

Sodablasters

Sodablasting is a fast and gentle method of removing paint, varnish and surface rust – even from hard to reach places. It neither warms up nor stretches the sheet metal and does not damage glass, rubber or plastic. There is therefore a minimal need for shielding. Specially granulated sodium bicarbonate is applied at high pressure upon a surface, to remove contaminants or smooth the surface. Because sodium bicarbonate shatters on impact, it is much gentler than sandblasting or media blasting. It is suitable for use upon chrome, plastics and even glass if applied correctly. Soda is also used to a lesser extent to remove mold and smoke damage, as sodium bicarbonate is a natural deodorizer. Soda blasting has the following benefits

  • Prevents further rusting
  • Removes grease and car paint up to 15 times quicker
  • Cleans mold
  • Can be applied on plastics, wood and chrome
  • Environmentally friendly and biodegradable
  • Gentler than sandblasting
  • Non-toxic and water soluble

Sandblasters

When it comes to sand blasting, it is often more preferable to soda blasting in the cleaning of industrial equipment. Sand blasting is cheap, quick and effective. Sand blasting removes grease and car paint quickly. A gritblast gun fires dry abrasive particles at high speed, quickly removing rust, scale, old paint etc. Ideal for cleaning pitted surfaces, crevices and other hard to reach places. Grit blasting has the following benefits

  • Quicker cleaning than soda blasting
  • More efficient for industrial applications
  • More effective at removing rust than soda blasting
