It can't warp because the water keeps it cool. Would you rather blast with air at 100-150 psi and warp it, or blast with 2800 psi with water and NOT warp it???? Been there done that, never going back to 100-150 psi system again. Look up on youtube under wet sandblasting.
In the beginning of the post he shows that temperature isnt the cause of the warping. It is the stretching of the metal due to the abrasive media hitting the panel.
