Free Webinar Focuses on Vapor Blasting


Using water to suppress airborne dust during abrasive blasting can achieve the same power as dry blasting, according to an upcoming webinar.

The results of using a blasting method that adds water to the pressure pot will be covered in "Differences Between Traditional Sandblasting and Vapor Abrasive Blasting," a free upcoming JPCL/SSPC webinar to be held from 11 a.m. to noon ET April 8.
