Granular sodium bicarbonate comes in a variety of formulations for different soda blasting applications. Each formulation consists of sodium bicarbonate particles, uniform in size, that exhibit the flow characteristics needed for productive soda blasting. It is an environmentally friendly, water soluble material that can remove contaminants and coatings efficiently without damaging delicate substrates.
Calcium carbonate (crushed limestone) has rounded granuals and a compatible chemical structure, making it ideal for granite, marble, masonry and limestone-based restoration work. It is mostly used for cleaning stone, especially delicate old brick on monumental works defaced by soot, black crusts, carbonizations in general, air-borne particles and saline efflorescence.
Glass beads are used for general cleaning, peening and cosmetic finishing of sensitive metal surfaces; removing automotive paint; brightening grout and removing fungus and calcium deposits from tile; polishing cast iron, stainless steel, aluminum, propellers and turbine blades. Its round shape gently cleans metal parts, leaving a smooth, polished or matte finish. Glass has a low dust level.
100% recycled bottle glass provides a non-hazardous silica free media that is approved for use by federal and state agencies. This cost effective media is ideal for removing typical coatings and other surface preparation. Depending on the formula, it can be used for anything from "light" sandblasting or aluminum, to paint and rust removal on log homes or pools, to a heavy duty sandblasting job. Glass has a low dust level.
Garnet is a gemstone that is a dual purpose media that works great for surface prep and rust removal. This hard abrasive can be used multiple times before losing its effectiveness and when used at a low pressure is nearly dustless. Garnet is fast-cutting and excellent for removing tough coatings, paint, rust and mill scale from steel. Garnet also permits precise feathering control. A good general outdoor surface preparation abrasive.
Walnut Shell is an organic abrasive commonly used to polish and clean soft metals, fiberglass, wood, and stone. Specific applications include fire & smoke remediation, graffiti removal, brick restoration, automotive restoration and specialty petrochemical or offshore applications where a minimal sparking, non-ferrous abrasive is required. Walnut Shell will clean metal parts without etching or pitting the surface.
