Probably not. Do you mean that the string will be exposed to the direct
spray from commercial sand blasting equipment?
There is a wide variability in abrasive power from sand blasting
equipment depending on the type of abrasive used, the relative size of
the equipment, and the velocity of the particles. From my own
experience, I've seen a modest sized sand blaster with a 1/2" orifice,
using silicon carbide abrasive, erode a hole trough a 1/2" thick
aluminum plate in about 40 seconds.

I work for SAIC (but I don't speak for SAIC)
If a 3 ft length of such line is selected, and pulled repeatedly through
a fold of fine sandpaper, then a test of its ultimate strength
before/after would answer that question neatly.
One sheet of fine sandpaper.
Hope this helps
My experience with sandblasting is that stiff / resistive materials
get eaten away.... flexible / compliance materials much less so.
As Paul mentioned, aluminum is gone in seconds...I seen rubber last
Glass gets etched / frosted immediately... soft PVC tubing not.
Kevlar (solid items) strikes me as stiff not rubbery. Kevlar line?
I dont know, not a fisherman.
Protect it with Tygon tubing. That will last quite a while for sure.
Am I correct in assuming that the line is being used to suspend an
object for blasting?
What is the application?
