There is absolutely no need to physically remove softening materials, peening or filling of plugs, holes and cracks (apertures) before soda blasting, the procedure won’t drive it deeper into the substrate nor will it be relocated, its fully encapsulated and fully removed from the non-porous surfaces and then…it pretty much does its job on its own. I don’t know about you but that’s pretty cool, don’t you agree? Now then, you might think that there are some things that are so important that we must insist upon their removal before we begin working on the project, you may even say that this is a no brainer, but what I ask is whether you agree that using industry standard products and processes, and sticking to these strict processes in your concrete services, would be the best way to go about reducing your costs. In my humble opinion, I would submit to you that it very well could be. After all, there is nothing inherently wrong with using industry standard products and procedures, why do we insist upon their removal before we begin the project?
Soda blasting Auckland, New Zealand has been around for decades and has continued to gain popularity among a wide range of industries and individuals. The process involves injecting high pressure, sodium bicarbonate into steel or sheet metal to harden it, then driving it with a commercial grade equipment through a machine guided by computer-aided design. The result is a durable, clean finish that compliments a wide range of architectural designs and materials.
Before discussing the actual process in detail we will take a look at the products and equipment required for the operation. These include steel or sheet metal tools that are suitable for cutting, drilling and cutting edge work, as well as abrasive cleaner to remove burrs and fine scratches before the blasting begins. Of course, any other products or materials you wish to use in the process will also be available from your local service station or home depot. Once you have your equipment and tools you will need a location where you can commence your work. The best locations will be indoors because you can control the environment and avoid any unwanted exposure to outside air or noise. With the proper planning and preparation, your soda blasting Auckland project can be started within weeks.
