Glass beads are an abrasive with unique characteristics, which are widely used in cleaning or metal surface strengthening processes, mainly in sandblasting equipment. Glass beads are made by crushing and sorting high-quality broken glass. In the manufacturing process, the broken glass should be melted into a spherical shape and annealed to eliminate internal stress and prevent damage. This transparent and clear spherical structure product will not have particles embedded in the workpiece, contaminating the workpiece or causing other damage.
Using different sizes of abrasive tools and different operating parameters, glass beads will obtain different gloss on the surface of the workpiece. Select shot blasting glass beads for partial coverage on the surface of the workpiece, which can produce special decorative effects.
The excellent performance of glass beads makes it very suitable for the selection of workpieces with strict deviation requirements, and will not damage the surface of the workpiece during cleaning or deburring. In addition, the inherent strength of glass beads makes it suitable for equipment that can recycle abrasives.
