Glass beads also known as glass microbeads are one of the most popular and pure, mineral, non-metallic abrasives. Dust generated in abrasive blasting is free of respirable crystalline silica (SiO2) and does not cause a hazard to workers and the environment. Glass beads are reusable abrasive. As a filler glass beads lower the shrinkage of coachings while drying, improve their smoothness, flow properties and wetability. Glass beads have also decorative values. Glass beads are a mineral, iron-free reusable abrasive with a wide range of applications. Due to their (round) grain shape, they have a low abrasive effect and are therefore ideally suited for a gentle cleaning. Our customers appreciate the special ability of the glass beads to create a smooth silky make surface finish. Our company’s expert technical team will be happy to assist you.
Glass beads are used in compressed air dry- and wet-blasting applications. Produce a much smoother and brighter satin finish, polishing, deburring and uniforming the surface of steel, stainless steel, non-ferrous metals, aluminum, stone. Glass beads are used for shot peening – improving the stress-resistance of metal products. Glass beads are also used as a filler in chemical and construction branch and for road marking (road marking paints) as high reflective microbeads.
