The Many Uses of Glass Beads

Posted By : Aubrey Mead , on Aug, 2017


Glass beads are commonly used for a variety of applications. They are tremendously versatile and are an ideal choice to use in different industrial applications. These beads offer a wide range of benefits as compared to other options in the market. For starters, they are pretty versatile and can be used for a number of jobs with differing profiles. On top of that, these beads are completely non-reactant, which means you don’t have to worry about them reacting with any coating on the surface either. Another reason why these beads are the preferred choice is because they don’t cause any dimensional changes to the surface they are applied to. They don’t even contain any embedded contaminants or leave behind any sort of residue on the material. There’s no detectable traces of crystalline silica in glass beads either.


These beads are most popularly used for applying the finish on a wide range of different materials. They can be used for the finishing on plastic, rubber, metals, and of course, glass. The smaller the spheres used, the smoother the end-result will be.


Another reason why these beads are used is because they can clean the surface and remove all kinds of foreign substances from the original surface without actually causing a change in the dimensions of the surface. With different sizes of glass beads available, you have the option of choosing the finesse of the surface as per your needs.


Another major application for using these beads is peening, which is simply a cheaper form of creating a uniform surface using compression stress. This method helps increase the useful lifespan of metallic parts. Acme Paving Contractors offers a wide range of different paving and resurfacing services.
