Soda Blasting is a non-destructive, environmentally friendly, chemical free, cleaning process that uses specially formulated granules of bicarbonate soda and controlled amounts of compressed air. Soda blasters can be used to remove layers of paint, indelible stains, and caked-on dirt from virtually any surface, including steel, aluminum, wood, sheet metal, chrome, glass, and fiberglass. This process will best prepare your boat’s surface for gel coat repair, epoxy barrier coating, and anti-fouling bottom paint. The advantages of using baking soda is that it's environmentally safe, less aggressive and affordable. Soda blasting is known for the reduction in weight and drag resulting in the improvement in speed for sailing and motor craft with lower fuel cost.
