Blasting Materials distributed by GritSablare are characterized by outstanding quality. This quality is reflected in an above-average service life, a very high productivity and value retention.
Glass Beads for Blasting
- Glass Beads are used for cleaning and shot peening surfaces without any contamination or damage to the base surface.
- After the blasting process, the surface has a bright satin finish;
- Use: cleaning, peening and sanitizing fine parts, stainless steel in food and pharma industy; aircraft engine blades, road marking and finishing wood surfaces;
- Economical and Efficient material with low emissions of dust and any type of waste.
- Reusable Material, depending on the application.
- 50 - 105 μm (0.05 - 0.105 mm)
- 40 - 70 μm (0.04 - 0.07 mm)
- 70 - 110 μm (0.07 - 0.11 mm)

Glass Beads Description
- Quality certificates:
- GB/T24722 - 2009 and BS6088 - 1981: United Kingdom;
- AASHTO M247 - 1981: USA;
- EN1423 - 1997 and EN1424 - 1998: European Union.
- Glass Beads are a spherical abrasive manufactured from chemically inert soda lime glass.
- Glass Beads are used for cleaning, finishing, light peening, deburring, sanitizing, descaling, coating removal, polishing and surface blending. Also, this material is used for shot peening of aircraft engine blades, turbine rotors, gears, bricks, shafts, steam and gas turbine components. Glass beads are also used for road marking.
- Glass Beads produce a bright satin finish; finer beads produce a smoother non glare finish, while larger beads produce a deeper textured finish. Blasting with Glass Beads does not produce any dimension changes to the part base surface.
