How does Vapor Blasting work?

The biggest advantage of wet blasting is it produces a finer finish on a surface than traditional dry blasting. Compared to sandblasting, vapor blasting reduces abrasive consumption. No media is impregnated into the component, nor is there any dust created by the break-up of media, unlike dry blasting where the finish is produced by sheer force of media impact.  Thus, it delivers a more cost-effective surface prep option. Vapor blasting is preferred when you have a surface that you would like to preserve.
