Thank you for your interest and your inquiry concerning Eco-Blasting media and our exclusive All-Media Eco-
Blasting Equipment. Eco-Blasting includes air blasting using 5XL (baking soda), K2 (potassium sulfate),
MaxxStrip (magnesium sulfate) or corn cob. Eco-Blasting also includes Solu-Blasting (pressure washing with
dry media injection) using 5XL, K2 or MaxxStrip.
Eco-Blasting provides civilization with ecologically safe and friendly surface cleaning and coatings removal.
Soda-Blast.Com, LLC is proud to provide both you and the rest of our society the means to accomplish these
mandates economically as well as ecologically.

Green Collar™ Solutions for a Blue Collar World. Our Green Collar™ solutions allow you to apply our
ecologically sound and environmentally friendly Green Collar™ Solutions in both Blue Collar and White Collar
environments protecting the earth, corporate interests and their workers.
Soda-Blast.Com, LLC has pioneered a number of positive and forward moving innovative and technological
advancements in equipment and the application processes to allow us to offer your company and its customers
our Green Collar™ Eco-Blasting Solutions. These Green Collar™ Solutions may be a different approach to
solving an existing problem or the Solutions might be an entirely new way for you and your company to
increase your current revenue stream or add a second or third stream by doing something you had not even
considered prior to this moment.
In partnership with our vendors, the changes we have made within our company and in our media supply
infrastructure allow us to offer you better distribution of equipment and media across the United States. Better
distribution channels means less freight costs. (That means ―cheaper landed costs‖ per bag!) What this means to
you is that you initiate and pay for your order with us here in Portland, Oregon but we will ship your order
directly to you from the closest warehouse around the country such as Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston,
Tampa, Baltimore or whichever city/warehouse has the media or equipment we need to fill your individual
order. This flexibility allows us to fulfill your company’s needs “Just in Time”.
The following information is intended to give you an overview of these improvements to the Soda-Blast.Com,
LLC Sales/Distribution Network as it benefits you in your part of the country. As I stated, we have added
several new vendors and increased our shipping warehouses to 26 across the continental United States with 18
of those shipping blast media. These additional resources afford us multiple ways to fulfill your equipment and
media needs. We are also proud to offer your company innovative “Just in Time” Eco-Solutions based on Soda-
Blast.Com, LLC’s exclusive line of High Performance Green Collar™ All-Media Eco-Blasting Equipment.
Our Green Collar™ Sales Specialists are also Eco-Blasting technicians. They use their hands-on Eco-Blast
knowledge to assist you in tailoring a complete solution package that will work best for you and your company's
needs. They will help you with choices and options for the setup of your individualized blast solutions which
will include identifying/choosing the correct type of media for the type of projects that you will normally work
with using the blast pot that you currently own or that we will suggest best for your usage, the air sources, air
coolers, air dryers and whether or not you already have or will now need to go to Class D supplied breathing air
for your blast technician.

                                                 designed to be small enough to be maneuvered easily on walkways
                                                 and in tight spaces allowing you to get closer to the worksite and to
                                                 reduce the need to use the extended lengths of expensive, heavy blast
                                                 hose required to reach up or out to the work area. Those years of
                                                 development and hundreds of hours of operation have proven the

For Your Further Information:

         The K50 MiniPot can and will do any Eco-Blast job but more slowly than with the larger units.
         The K100 or the H250 Green Collar™ Series are the suggested models for production work. They both
          have remote operator controls at the nozzle to turn the blasting of the machine on or off.
         The K50 and K100 do not use cob or standard sand abrasives; only the H250 Series is designed to
          properly meter various grits of cob and water solubles as well as all standard industrial abrasives.
         The Airman 185 and DUS BOSS compressors will power any of the three blasters but are mainly used
          for the H250 Green Collar™ Series. The BOSS RX 70 CFM rotary vane compressor will power the
          K50 or the K100 at full pressure or the H250 with a #4 nozzle @80 PSI.
               o The K50 will need up to approx. a 7.5 HP compressor to provide up to 25 SCFM.
               o The K100 will need up to approx. a 15 HP compressor to provide 50 SCFM.
               o The H250 Green Collar™ Series can all be used with any compressor from 125 SCFM up to
                  400 SCFM or more.
               o The H258-HO-LP and H259 XHO use the air output more efficiently giving more work.
         The SCFM demand will vary depending on Tip size chosen for use and the pressure being blasted at.
               o Example: #- (1/8‖) nozzle @100 PSI = 26 SCFM air draw
               o Example: #4 (1/4‖) nozzle @100 PSI = 100 SCFM air draw
           o Example: #5 (5/16‖) nozzle@100 PSI = 140 SCFM air draw
           o Example: #6 (3/8‖) nozzle @100 PSI = 200 SCFM air draw
           o Example: #7 (7/16‖) nozzle @100 PSI = 255 SCFM air draw
           o Example: #8 (1/2‖) nozzle @100 PSI = 550 SCFM air draw
           o Example: #9 (5/8‖) nozzle @100 PSI = 550 SCFM air draw
      The model/air demand and equipment pricing is as follows:
           o K-50 = 7-25 SCFM @ 120 PSI (MSRP $435.00 w/o aftercooler includes UPS freight)
           o K100 = 10-50 SCFM @ 120 PSI (MSRP $2,495.00 w/o aftercooler plus trucking freight)
           o H257-LP = 50-250 SCFM @ 125 PSI (MSRP $7,995.00 includes 185 CFM aftercooler plus
           o H258-HO-LP = 50-350 SCFM @ 125 PSI (MSRP $8,995.00 includes 185 CFM aftercooler
                plus freight)
           o H259-XHO-LP = 50-475 SCFM @ 150 PSI (MSRP $10,995.00 includes 185 CFM aftercooler
                plus freight) (Add $500 for the 400 CFM aftercooler upgrade)
      Media is 24.00 per bag in 40, 49 or 54 bag pallets plus average shipping of approx $125 to $300 or so
       per pallet and pallets are shipped from the closest warehouse which has that inventory.
   Our ―5XL‖ pure sodium bicarbonate is now Specially Priced @ $25.00 per 50 lb.
    bag FREIGHT INCLUDED! There are 49 bags to a pallet and YES, our blasting
      soda is KOSHER! The delivered pallet price is $1,325.00 and that price which
     includes freight is good for 70% of all the continental US addresses. (Delivered
    media cost is subject to daily correction (hourly?) due to fuel surcharge increases)
Media usage: Soda
      The K50 will go approximately 20 minutes per 8 lb. filling.
      The K100 and H250 Series use approximately one (1) bag an hour, which is approximately 1 pound per
         o Freight on all the H250 Green Collar™ Series originates out of Portland, Oregon. Freight costs
             which include our company’s freight discount will average $250.00 to $400.00 depending on
             what part of the country you that you are in.
         o Freight on the K100 will be a bit less as it has a lighter shipping weight.
         o Freight on pallets of K2 and MaxxStrip media average $125.00 to $400.00 depending on
             destination and which originating warehouse can ship it.
    As I have indicated, the suggested and preferred production model for most companies is the H258-HO-
      LP Green Collar™ All-Media Eco-Blast pot.
    Any H250 Green Collar™ Series All-Media Eco-Blasting pot will handle "ALL" blast media and
      "ALL" grit sizes that can normally be used in any soda, cob or sandblasting type of operations.

   Choosing a Soda-Blast.Com H250 Green Collar™ Series All-Media Eco-Blast Pot
       insures your company will only need ONE pot to do the work of THREE!
                     AND it will use less media to do more work!
                                 IT IS ALSO A SAND POT!

As we stated above, SodaBlast.Com, LLC distributes the Airman PDS185S, the RX70 and BOSS compressors
NATIONWIDE. We offer them in our soda blasting equipment package because we have personally found them
to be extremely reliable. In fact, the Airman 185’s price includes an unheard of 5 year/5,000 hour warranty
at NO EXTRA COST! The Airman 185 CFM uses the proven reliability of the 4 cylinder Nissan industrial
diesel which Nissan also uses in their forklifts. The BOSS RX70 CFM screw compressor uses a 24 HP Honda
engine and has a 24 month warranty. The BOSS DUS Series offers a 2 year warranty and uses the bullet proof
John Deere diesel.
          The Airman PDS185S Eco-Compressors are 20% quieter and 13% more fuel efficient than any other
                         compressor brand in its class found in our market place.
The Airman PDS185 and the BOSS compressor can not only be used for mobile onsite work but also as a fixed,
stationary power source or for solid mounting on a trailer or in a truck. Call us; we can have your new
compressor fueled, serviced and fully operational and ready to put to work, delivered directly to you from the
warehouse closest to you. Call us directly for further information and to initiate your order.
Soda-Blast.Com, LLC’s Media Distribution:
As I stated above, we currently have 18 warehouses across the country from which to initiate shipment of media.
We normally service the west coast from San Diego, LA, Sacramento, Phoenix, Portland or Seattle depending
on inventory and whichever shipping source gives the cheapest cost for freight. Other warehouses include,
among others, Houston, Baton Rouge, Tampa, Chicago and Baltimore.
For Eco-Blasting media, we have 5XL sodium bicarbonate), K2 (potassium sulfate), MaxxStrip (magnesium
sulfate), or corn cob. We have three grit sizes of soda, three of potassium, three of magnesium and three of cob
in the sizes that you would normally blast with. For increased cutting effect, we can also provide Eco-Grit
crushed glass or garnet which is also used for water jet cutting and ultra-high pressure water blasting up to
38,000 PSI
I suggest you consider the K2, the 5XL soda, the MaxxStrip and corn cob all as being problem-solvers for
different types of surface cleaning or coatings removal. Our K2, 5XL soda and MaxxStrip are all water-soluble
            Our soluble media is Kosher and FDA authorized for use in food processing facilities.

    Our most popular soda is the 5XL (our premium soda). The 5XL premium grade soda is a larger, more
    consistently shaped soda particle that does more work per bag and is more cost effective than maintenance
    grit soda.
     5XL soda (#5.5) is a 2.5 Mohs hardness, 70 mesh, 180 micron particle while maintenance grit (#5) is an
         80/120 mesh at approximately 140 microns.
     The K2 is one-half step harder than soda at 3.0 on the Mohs scale. K2 is available in two grit sizes.
     MaxxStrip is one-half step harder than the K2 at 3.5 on the Mohs scale and is available in 20/40, 40/60
         and 60/80 grit sizes.
     Both the K2 and MaxxStrip are heavier particles with more mass than soda and produce more work
         more quickly than either grit of soda while creating less blast dust.
     Eco-Grit is recycled, crushed, screened consumer glass such as pickle jars, etc. It is a snow-flake type

The viewing instructions for additional videos we host on our own website are below.
We have added ―Streaming Video‖ to our website so you can see actual product demonstrations as well as
before/after still pictures of blasted materials in various industries. Choose either Real Player or Windows Media
Player as your viewer, then choose the speed for your dial-up modem or your cable connection speed, then
choose the demonstration you wish to view. Let it begin to load. This could take up to several minutes
depending on web server traffic and the speed of your internet connection.
        We do not support the Quicktime format.
Real Player:
When it is playing, if you ―hover‖ your cursor over the Real Player screen, it will open a hidden menu bar that
will allow you to ―2X‖ your screen size if you wish to. Just remember the larger screen may be fuzzier to look
Windows Media Player:
When you choose a Windows media, Explorer should open up into its normal screen. It will ask you if you wish
to view the video in separate screen. Tell it yes, it will open a small window in the lower left corner of your
screen. It will automatically start playing the video as it downloads enough file to begin viewing. You can make
the viewing window bigger by "detaching the player" from the screen. The detach button is the only button over
the horizontal bar just to the right side of the square. You can “Hover” your mouse cursor over it to identify it.
Again, if you make the screen too large the image will get very grainy.

The following information is to illustrate other uses for our equipment and blast media.
                                            - MOLD REMEDIATION -
They are saying that MOLD is the next asbestos for the service industries. We are being contacted almost daily
by restoration companies across the country whose insurance adjustors, industrial hygienists or contractors are
instructing them that SODIUM BICARBONATE is being spec'd in as the proper cleanup method. This method
