ARMEX™ is a brand of the Church & Dwight Co., Inc. makers of ARM & HAMMER™ products since 1846. Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda) abrasive blasting originated in 1984 during the restoration project of the Statue of Liberty with the assistance of Church & Dwight. Project engineers were searching for a replacement for sand blasting. Baking soda was the answer, with its extraordinary cleaning and coating removal properties all while not causing any damage to Lady Liberty’s delicate copper skin. At the completion of the project over 200,000 pounds of ARM & HAMMER™ baking soda was used to abrasive blast Lady Liberty. Following this success, Church & Dwight launched the ARMEX™ brand the first Sodium Bicarbonate blasting abrasive in 1989.
In remanufacturing and rebuilding of engines, transmissions and any other components that can be rebuilt or remanufactured are highly dependent on cleaning products with thorough and dependable results. Before anything else can be done to the cores or components being rebuilt or remanufactured, it needs to be cleaned and inspected for defects. ARMEX has answered the problem of ineffective and time consuming cleaning processes with the introduction of Re-Man XL, the first abrasive blasting media specifically formulated for the remanufacturing and rebuilding industry.
