BLAST MEDIA - GLASS BEAD

BLAST MEDIA - GLASS BEAD

BLAST MEDIA - GLASS BEAD

GENERAL INFORMATION

 The round shape of the beads allows for the media to bounce off the surface (compared to other sharp and angular media which easily create profiles on a surface).  If needed, you can maintain a smooth surface because of this property.  When applied at the right pressures, Glass Beads will recycle several times.  Using it in a blast room?  Be careful – the round shape also means its very slippery for operators to walk on.
