They’ll discuss the advantages and disadvantages of soda blasting, as well as the current best practices to achieve a “perfect surface.” They’ll also examine new blasting materials like recycled bottle glass and how to use them properly.

I had this done on my Mack Truck. It’s more environmentally friendly, and no “sand dust”, but it still make a plume of vapor that contains the paint and water and…etc. The plume may drift 50 ft.
