Soda Blasting

Using baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and low air pressure we are able to soft media blast most delicate parts. Hanco uses soda blasting for automotive restoration, fire restoration, marine and aviation cleaning.

Dry Ice Blasting

Using dry ice pellets in the form of rice and air pressure this industrial cleaning system is non-abrasive, non toxic and completely dry with no residual blast media clean up. Hanco uses this system for mould removal, fire restoration and the cleaning of sensitive equipment.
