Glass Bead Blast Media, #8 #480-107
Glass Bead Blast Media, #8

Detailed Product Description:

Glass bead blasting produces a clean, bright, satin finish, without

dimensional change of the parts.  Available in a wide range of sizes,

glass beads are primarily used in blasting cabinets for honing, polishing,

peening, blending, finishing, removing light burrs and cleaning most

light foreign matter.  For delicate thin-walled parts and thin welds,

peening with glass bead abrasive material provides the right balance of

stress relief without over-stressing and causing damage. Consider the

size of perforations or holes through which the glass beads must pass

when screen separating parts from media after use.


Glass beads are manufactured from lead-free, soda lime-type glass,

containing no free silica that is made into preformed ball shapes.

Glass beads produce a much smoother and brighter finish than angular

abrasives.  Glass beads can be recycled approximately 30 times.  Chemically

inert and environmentally friendly, glass beads are an acceptable method

of metal cleaning or surface finishing when properly controlled.

Application Notes:

Best on softer metals like aluminum and brass.  Great for cleaning pistons, engine

blocks, and for light rust removal with minimal dust.   Commonly used on

aircraft parts for pre-paint preparation. 

Meets mil spec MIL G9954A for size uniformity.
