Classic Truck Restorations, based in Califon, New Jersey, can now provide professional and safe 'Soda Blasting' to the classic truck and car restoration community. This new type of surface restoration is clean and environmentally safe. Essentially, the process involves using sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) as an abrasive medium to safely remove old paint, rust, etc. from metal, wood, fiberglass and other surfaces.

Using specialized equipment, Classic Truck Restorations can safely and quickly remove layers of paint, rust scale, and other signs of age from a vehicle (or other items, for that matter) without masking glass, chrome, rubber, and other trim items. Because the baking soda is a natural, biodegradable, and water soluble blasting medium, there is little, if any, cleanup afterwards. Significant cleanup would be required if traditional sand blasting were to be used.

Soda blasting is gentle enough to remove almost any coating without harming the surface underneath. It does not distort or warp the underlying material and can be done wet or dry. The medium also leaves a protective coating on the sub surface, allowing for a period of time to elapse before a primer must be used to seal the bare metal surface.

  • Sodium bicarbonate (Baking soda) media provides optimum cleaning with no chance of redeposit or contamination.
  • Safe to use on aluminum, molds, wood, glass or other sensitive materials
  • Great for engine parts, wheels, housings
  • easily removes carbon, grease oil, gasket material, surface corrosion, paint, and coating from a wide variety of alloys, metals, plastic, and composites without substrate damage or distortion
  • Even leaves hard anodized coating intact
  • Reduce cycle time by cleaning, degreasing, and depainting in one step
  • Unlike glass beads or plastic media, baking soda requires no pre-wash, and its water solubility allows for complete rinsing, eliminating the risk of spent media lodgin in tight spaces and critical passage ways.



What is Media Blasting?
Media blasting is a wet or dry method using compressed air and an abrasive media. The media is mixed with compressed air in a hose that exits through a nozzle, developing a very high or low pressure stream toward the work piece, removing grease, rust, and even paint.

Why Use Sodium Bicarbonate?
Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is environmentally safe and non-toxic to the person using the product. The product is soft, yet effective (Mohs hardness 2.5), therefore you are able to use this product on many different materials without scratching or damaging the material. Other sources of media include plastic, nut shells, and sand, but they do not leave the material with a smooth finish like sodium bicarbonate. You can shower away years of rust with the safest rust remover.

  • Safe on rubber, gaskets, seals, decals, stickers, plastic, and most paint
  • Rapidly removes rust from ferrous metals and stainless steel
  • Non-corrosive, non-flammable, and non-toxic
  • Inhibits rust from re-forming for up to 4 weeks indoors
  • Will not pit or discolor un-rusted steel
