Apr 01, 2006· Micro-abrasive blasting is a deceptively simple process. Often described as a miniature sand blaster, it is a process by which micron-sized particles are mixed with dry air. This mixture is then propelled out of a small nozzle tip at high velocity. The tight focus of the abrasive stream is what makes micro-abrasive blasting so unique.
