Sandblasting vs media blasting?
Sandblasting uses air to force sand particles on a surface to remove dirt and paint. In the past, silica sand particles made up the bulk of these abrasives. The silica particles, however, posed a health risk. Media blasting has since replaced sandblasting in the powder coating industry. Media blasting includes small beads of plastic, glass, or even ground walnut shells. This media is thrust through high-pressure tools for surface preparation prior to powder coating.
