Benefits of Using Glass Bead Blasting
Glass bead blasting leaves a luminous satin finish, all without changing the dimensions of the parts. When it comes to delicate surfaces with thin walls and welds, glass bead blasting is the perfect solution as it prevents damage and extensive stress. This blasting process also creates a matte finish. Larger glass beads can be used for a more textured finish, whereas smaller glass beads are ideal for a smoother finish. The glass beads used are made of soda lime glass, which contains no lead or free silica. The glass beads can be recycled several times, and the blasting process is chemically inert and environmentally safe. This blasting method also does not leave any residue or embedded contaminates, and can make a surface more resistant to corrosion.
