It has been demonstrated in practice that inadequate training and/or process requirements have produced conflicting results. The purpose of this paper is to outline an acceptable training program in use by commercial airlines and the military. It may not be the only program in use, but it should be representative of what is required to enable plastic media blast (PMB) to become a viable process for commercial aviation processing as well as military or other industry applications. In addition attempts are made to document in bibliographical sequence test data supporting plastic media blast process applications. The objective again is to produce data supporting the viability of plastic media blast processing. As well as data already existing, we have included data currently being collected that may or may not support plastic media blast processing.
