Glass Beads

Glass Beads are a spherical abrasive manufactured from chemically inert, lead-free, soda-lime glass with no free silica. Glass Beads can be used on all metals regardless of hardness, leave no contaminants or residues on surfaces, smoothly blend away surface defects, improve corrosion resistance, and decrease fatigue by stress relieving machined and forged parts. Glass Beads produce clean, bright satin finishes, without dimensional change to parts, that are smoother than those produced by angular abrasives.
