Media blasting as a cleaning
method has been widely used for over a hundred
years, often as a method of preparing a surface
for the application of paint, a sealant or

blasting is the operation of forcibly propelling
a stream of abrasive material against a surface
under high pressure to smooth a rough surface,
roughen a smooth surface, shape a surface or
remove surface contaminants.
Our specialists will help you determine which media is best for your project; sand, soda or glass.

Sandblasting (a.k.a. Gritblasting)
is an industrial process by which excess materials,
paints, debris, etc., can be removed from a surface
(typically metallic surfaces). Our system is a gravity
fed/pressure type system, using air pressure combined
with an abrasive compound. The abrasive compound is
purified fine sand with silica content. Air pressure
forces the abrasive through a hardened nozzle in a jet
stream which allows it to remove contaminants from the
surface of the product.
new technique, sandblasting with baking soda
is a highly effective but gentler, more precise
technique using sodium bicarbonate particles instead of
sand or chemicals.
The sodium bicarbonate used
in commercial or industrial soda blasting is a larger
granule than the type that is in your kitchen cabinet,
although it is the same product. Once it is sprayed, it
breaks up or explodes into a powder as it hits the
surface, resulting in a fine powder. Because baking soda
is softer than sand or water blasting, this is an
appropriate method to use in many different industrial
painting and cleaning applications.
blasting is an environmentally friendly cleaning
technique, baking soda is a natural substance that
simply dissipates into the environment. Sandblasting
with baking soda is completely harmless, but highly
effective in removing paint and grime in preparation for

This abrasive is excellent for coating removal on softer metals such as aluminum or thin gauge steel that may typically be warped or damaged by higher density abrasives.
