Sand Blasting vs Dry Ice Blasting Old Parts: What’s the Difference?
When it comes to getting just about any job done out in the garage, there are lots of ways to skin a cat. Whether it’s detailing a car or stripping down metal to its bare form, free of all rust, we find a variety of different processes and products to really get to the bottom of it all.
This time, we check in with the latter.
When it comes to trying to get rid of that pesky rust to get down to a surface that’s either cleaner or easier to work with, it can definitely be a process that gets a little bit tedious and can really create a lot of work. Luckily, there are sorts of different methods to get this job done in an efficient manner that won’t have you out in the garage with a piece of sandpaper trying to get the corrosion off of your long tube headers for hours.
Typically, the AMMO NYC YouTube channel is all about trying to figure out the best way to get to the bottom of cleaning solutions. As the channel tackles all sorts of different jobs with old cars that lack attention, we generally learn how to take care of the paint, interior, and even a little bit under the hood. With this particular outing, though, it isn’t detailing that we’re looking at all.
Down in the video below, we ride along with a couple of ways of stripping off that rust in both sandblasting and dry ice blasting. Both have a similar concept behind them as they shoot a particulate at something that we all want to get rid of. However, the way that they approach the situation and exactly how the results come out is pretty different. In fact, they might be much bigger differences than one might think.
