Glass Bead Blasting
Deburring, cleaning, surface preparation, texturizing and finishing are also achieved through glass bead blasting. Metal surfaces often need to be cleaned, textured or polished for aesthetic and functional purposes. In order to keep the surfaces free from iron contamination of steel blasting media while achieving a smooth, satin finish, glass bead blasting becomes a desirable metal surface preparation technique. This technique is economical, reliable and it does not damage metal parts or their surfaces during the cleaning process. In many cases, traditional blasting media abrades the surface which does not happen with Micro-Blast beads.
