Sandblasting, also known as abrasive blasting, is the operation of propelling a stream of abrasive material (sand) at a surface. It is a highly effective way of removing paint, rust and visible corrosion, as well as other impurities and residue caused by a reaction from oxidation. It also helps smooth out surfaces for a flawless and restored look.
Sandblasting is performed using a much higher pressure than soda blasting. Sandblasting machinery propels from 70 to 120 psi which is why it is more effective in removing paint and rust. Soda blasting uses as little as 20 psi and shoots minuscule pieces of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to clean surfaces. Both methods can be used on similar things, but it depends on the size, sensitivity and strength of the surface.
