Remove burrs and surface contamination to achieve your desired finish texture
Glass bead blasting is an effective and proven process used in mass finishing. Bead blasting produces a smoother and brighter finish compared to angular abrasives. Through bead blasting, there is minimal to no dimensional change to metal surface. Glass bead blasting will not leave embedded contaminates or residue and can improve corrosive resistance.
The use of steel shot blasting for surface preparation can provide effective surface preparation without the need for harsh chemicals or other potentially hazardous materials. You may be able to reduce surface preparation time by as much as 75 percent, while providing substantial labor cost savings. Steel shot can also remove scale and other surface debris without damaging or removing the underlying metal while promoting adhesion of pain, epoxy, and metal coatings.
