RockRidge Glass Bead media breaks down at a slow rate and can survive multiple impacts. This allows for continuous recycling and extended blasting time. Glass beads are chemically inert and will not leave any residue on the surface of the work-piece.
Blasting with glass beads allows the user to clean work-pieces quickly without any significant metal removal. Due to the shape of the glass beads, they clean, finish, peen, and deburr. That four-step process provides a controlled, unique, and clean surface finish.
Glass beads can be used in many peening applications. It is also an excellent choice for cosmetic surface finishing.
