The History of Soda Blasting

Soda blasting was invented to blast the Statue of Liberty in 1972. The Statue of Liberty is made of copper, which is soft metal that is vulnerable to damage with most blasting methods, such as traditional sandblasting. Beyond this, the Statue of Liberty is located on water, so there had to be a water-soluble and environmentally friendly blasting method to do the job with out contaminating the water. Because soda is a gentle, environmentally friendly media, it was the best solution for the job.
