Items that are often blasted with glass bead include food processing machinery, abattoir equipment, stainless steel platforms and walkways and architectural fabrications. Glass beads are iron free and will not stain the surface, either from impingement or if retained in an inaccessible area that is difficult to remove spent abrasive from. Blasting with glass bead has a slower production rate than blasting with more aggressive sandblasting media. Normally this isn’t a problem as the surface area requiring blasting with glass bead is usually limited.
Glass bead is available in a range of sizes – from #20 – 30 to #270 plus. Special grades are available for blasting to military specification and peening.
