Glass Beads Description

Cleaning blade engine for aircrafts
Blasting of aircraft engine blades
  • 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.

Glass Beads Application

Glass Beads for Road Marking
Glass Beads for Road Marking
An area in which glass beads are successfully used is road marking. The paint used in road marking embeds glass beads with retro-reflective properties of the vehicle's headlight beam, ensuring better visibility of the road marks during night and day and greater safety for car drivers. Glass beads can be mixed with paint prior to road marking, but can be added later over the newly fresh paint.

Glass beads woodworking
Glass beads for finishing surfaces in wood industry
At the present moment, glass beads are successfully used for polishing and finishing surfaces in wood industry. Whether we are talking about freshly processed wood, recovered wood (which is becoming more and more appreciated) or the maintenance of machinery and equipment, the solutions that involve glass beads blasting present a number of major advantages.

Other Application:
  • Aluminium surfaces;
  • Stainless steel surfaces in food industry;
  • Fine parts in aerospace industry: aircraft engine blades, gears;
  • Sanitizing in pharma industry.
