Glass beads are manufactured from high-
grade glass, contain no free silica and are
made into preformed spherical shapes.
They produce a much smoother and
brighter satin finish than sharp abrasives
without dimensional change of the parts
and can be recycled many times.
Glass beads are extremely hard, chemically
inert and environmentally friendly. It is a
popular abrasive in both wet and dry blasting.
Glass beads are primarily used in blasting cabinets for honing, polishing, peening, blending, finishing, removing light burrs and cleaning most light foreign matter.
