Glass Bead is a versatile air-blasting media used in a variety of different applications:
Glass Bead blasting can be used on a wide range of materials including
metal, glass, plastic and rubber. The smaller the glass spheres, the
smoother the surface; larger spheres produce a more textured finish.
Glass Bead blasting removes/cleans foreign substances from the surface
without a dimensional change to the surface. A wide range of bead sizes
Glass Bead blasting removes burrs, feathered edges, from parts in a
precision operation. Corners and edges must be deburred with precision
to assemble and operate properly. Glass Bead blasting guarantees that no
base metal from the surface is removed.
Peening with Glass Bead is a low-cost form of creating a uniform
surface layer of compressed stress in alloy substances. Peening acts to
combat stress cracks and corrosion, resulting in increasing the life of
metal parts. The high degree of roundness of our Glass Bead media
enhances the performance of stress resistance processes.
