BLASTING, but with the delicate touch!


Most boat bottoms have never been completely stripped, simply because it is costly and very labour-intensive using conventional methods. Instead, one coat of paint is applied over another and another and so on. Eventually, all that is left are layered coats of peeling paint and possible gelcoat failure. Not such a pretty sight, but, more importantly the hull integrity is diminished, as is boat operating performance due to a rough bottom surface and the added weight of excessive layers of paint.


The answer is SodaBlasting; an air pressure driven, non-destructive method of cleaning and paint stripping for fibreglass, wood, steel, aluminium and other materials. SodaBlasting is fast, cost effective and flexible. SodaBlasting will remove the layers of old paint without harming the gelcoat. Most boats can be soda blasted in just one day with a much more thorough outcome than traditional methods. Areas around through-hulls, running strakes and prop pockets and be cleaned like never before. SodaBlasting will prepare the surface for gelcoat repair, possible application of an epoxy barrier coating and application of new anti-fouling bottom paint. This will ensure years of coating life service and better operating performance because of reduced weight and less drag.


In summary, SodaBlasting will support and sustain good hull integrity while improving performance in speed for sailing and motor craft with lower fuel cost.
