Cairns Soda Blasting—non-toxic and environmentally friendly

Dry Ice Blasting — Soda blasting Cairns in Cairns, QLD
Auswide Blast Cleaning Services offers fast, effective, environmentally friendly methods to clean and strip virtually any surface.

Soda blasting is a relatively gentle method of abrasive blasting where sodium bicarbonate is applied at high pressure to a surface to remove debris and contaminates. The bicarbonate particles shatter on impact, so the process is safe on most surfaces including:
  • Aluminium
  • Brick
  • Bronze
  • Composite fibres
  • Copper
  • Fiberglass
  • Glass
  • Masonry
  • Most plastics
  • Rubber
  • Stainless steel
  • Timber
  • Stone
It is an effective method for cleaning and stripping essentially any surface, even just a single layer. At Auswide Blast Cleaning Services, our process offers the advantage of removing paint, grease, oils, soot, rust, and other grime without damaging the surface below. It is also a great option for cleaning up mould and smoke damage due to its ability to deodorize and absorb odour.

Because sodium bicarbonate is non-toxic, water-soluble and absorbent it is perfectly suited for use in sensitive areas, such as restaurants and commercial food processing plants. Soda blasting can be used in a variety of industries including:
  • Automotive
  • Aviation
  • Marine
  • Commercial food
  • Mining
  • As well as businesses & households
One of the greatest advantages of soda blasting is its 1-step process. There is no need to pre-wash or degrease before blasting. Also, there's no need to remove any seals or bearings to soda blast, and there is no risk of the warping or pitting. The process is non-toxic, non-hazardous, non-flammable, non-corrosive, water-soluble, and environmentally friendly.

Of course, as soda blasting is a less aggressive process than sandblasting, certain projects are better served by sandblasting.
