Even the smallest soda-blasting job can be hazardous to your health. It is for this reason that all of our blasting specialists at Crystal Soda Blast take great precaution in wearing the proper safety equipment while working. A lack of proper safety equipment can result in health issues including hearing damage, skin burns or eye damage from flying debris and getting small particles sucked in to the lungs.
We use a variety of medias to blast with including sand, dry ice, and walnut shells. But why soda? Prior to soda, sand was the main blasting media. Sandblasting, however, is abrasive and erodes the substrate coatings, pitting glass, tearing rubber, plastic and etching metals. Soda blasting can be used wet or dry to remove paint, corrosion, biological contaminants, oil, grease, carbon and many other coatings.
