Default Re: Soda Blasting,Anyone?

Soda blasting is considered "green". Sandblasting carries the risk of silicosis if you breath in too much. When I did it I had a supplied air helmet. The pressure inside prevents the sand dust from entering. While you don't need it for soda blasting it's a good idea to use the best dust filter you can find, the really good cloth/fiber one. Not a cheapie dust mask, an expensive dust mask. That and a face shield and your good to go. When you finish soda blasting use air to blow all the dust off and prime as soon as you can. Blasted surfaces start hazing with rust fast.
