    There is a tape the sand blasters use that HAS to cover the back and gasket surface. Also, if the cover gets too hot during blasting or they don’t cover the back the gold on the inside will start to flake. The cover is ruined at that point.
    This is one of those things that sounds easy but it took me 3 powder coasters and some testing to figure out.
