Soda is the Best Choice
Just like the surface of the Statue of Liberty, this non abrasive action allows SodaBlasters to be used on surfaces that current popular abrasive media would damage. i.e.: aluminium, stainless steel, brick, stone, glass, fibreglass, wood, some plastics, seals, bearings, splines, radiator cores, transmission cases, and hydraulic cylinders. In some cases, using Soda Blasting dry, shutdown of electric motors and pumps is not necessary.

Sodablast better than sand and grit blasting?
Sodablast particles remove contaminants by the energy released when the particles 'explode' as they come in contact with the surface to be cleaned. This results in no damage to underlying substrates. By contrast, sand and grit blasting does.

Ferrous metals that have been sand blasted will require immediate coating to prevent rusting. By contrast, metal that has been cleaned using Sodablast will rust at a much reduced rate and can be coated several days after blasting rather than hours.

In some manufacturing processes it is necessary to create a specific surface profile. Sodablast will not create a surface profile as the metal will not be affected by the Sodablast process. In this case, it is appropriate to grit blast the metal rather than Sodablast.
Back in 1972, when New York State engineers were looking for ways to clean the Statue of Liberty, they had many concerns involving issues of the environment, waste disposal, and protection of the statues surface itself. Any use of any abrasive material to clean the surface would have been very harmful to the soft copper plates, let alone the waste in the water surrounding the statue.
Sodablast was invented because it would not only do the job while having a negligible impact on the waterways and harbour, but it was also non-abrasive.
