Glass Beads

         

Model : GLASS BEADS
Glass Beads are made of hardened spherical soda lime glass and are a multi-faceted and commonly used media. Cost effective, ideal where metal contamination is not allowed, and often used to peen difficult to reach part areas.

Advantages

  • Does not cause dimensional change to the base material
     
  • Environmentally friendlier than chemical treatments
     
  • Leave even, spherical impressions on blasted part surface
     
  • Low breakdown rate
     
  • Lower disposal & maintenance costs
     
  • Soda Lime glass does not release toxins (no free silica)
     
  • Suitable for pressure, suction, wet and dry blasting equipment
     
  • Will not contaminate or leave residue on work pieces
