As with Aluminium oxide glass bead is used in operations to achieve a consistent surface finish. Because the beads are spherical the effect of glass bead blasting is to peen the surface as opposed to cutting into it.
Glass bead blasting is often used to achieve a desired visual finish and is available in a range of micron sizes. Glass bead is available in 25kg bags, each bag contains a micron size range e.g. 74-150, 150-250, 180-300.
