Bi-Carb Soda Blasting
Blasting with ARMEX™ Bi-Carb Soda
Why Blast with Bi-carb Soda?
Bi-carb Soda is a relatively soft and friable media. Upon striking the work surface, the media crystals quickly disintegrate without damaging or distorting most substrates. Bi-carb Soda can be used to clean and remove paint almost any substrate, including sensitive components such as hard anodized aluminum, composite plastics, ceramic tiles, stainless steel, glass and natural or synthetic rubber. In one simple step, carbon, grease, oil, graffiti and paint can be removed from delicate parts or stonework.
A new way to clean, remove paint & degrease
The use of non-toxic, water soluble ARMEX™ Bi-carb Soda as remove paint and cleaning media, is relatively new. Delivered under pressure using compressed air and Accustrip™ soda blasting equipment, this environmentally friendly system is ideal for industrial cleaning, architectural cleaning, graffiti removal, one step clean and deodorizing after fire and smoke damage, paint removal and food processing area cleaning.
Bi-carb Soda Cleaning works on impact, not through a chemical reaction, such that the baking soda physically removes coatings and soiling from the substrate.
Accustrip™ Blasting Systems
The Accustrip™ Blasting Systems have been specifically developed for use with ARMEX™ Bi-carb media. These portable systems permit the user to independently select pressures and flow rates. Nozzle selections are made to optimize production rates, taking into consideration the application and ARMEX™ formulation to be used.
A selection of nozzles is available for applications ranging from stripping delicate substrates and cleaning applications, to paint stripping and corrosion removal. All nozzle configurations can introduce a dust-suppressing water stream if required.
