Baking soda is non-abrasive meaning it will take off grease, paint, light or new surface rust, mold, dirt, whatever it is you are removing and leave a metal surface smooth. Crushed glass is a very popular blast media. It's a light duty abrasive and is great for paint removal, rust removal and sometimes can be used to strip furniture. Crushed glass leaves metal with texture, ready to paint.
Short answer, not with blasting. The only real way to remove chrome is chemically. Blasting will remove any loose/flakey areas and leave a matte finish.
Absolutely, with baking soda. Soda is a gentle enough abrasive that, if done properly, will not damage the gel coat or fiberglass.
Not if the proper steps are taken. After a project is blasted with soda, it leaves a residue on the surface. Once the piece is neutralized and air dried, it is ready for paint.
Yes it is. Blasting is not suitable for all environments.
Wet blasting is the same as dry, the only benefit of wet blasting is it reduces the amount of dust.
Yes, but powder coat is extremely hard. It is slow to blast off but it is possible.
Yes, we recommend following the paint manufacturer's preparation steps.
No, but we sell equipment to several local rental companies.
Depends on the paint and wood. Stained wood is a lot easier.
Abrasive pots typically cannot meter media as fine as soda.
Yes, but only using a water injection nozzle (WIN).
