Glass bead blasting
Glass bead blasting is a gentle and effective method of surface finishing that removes contaminants, rust and paint from various materials. The process is suitable for a wide range of applications, from the automotive industry to medical technology, and produces a clean, smooth and matt surface.
Clean, smooth, matt
Glass bead blasting uses compressed air to blast the glass beads onto the surface to be processed. This creates a controllable pressure that shoots the glass beads onto the surface. The impact of the glass beads removes impurities and discolouration from the surface without damaging it. The size and hardness of the glass beads can be adjusted depending on the area of application and the desired result. The process is simple and quick to carry out, making it suitable for use in many areas.
In contrast to glass bead blasting, sandblasting is an abrasive process in which hard particles such as sand, corundum or steel are blasted onto the surface to be treated. This usually leaves visible marks that can alter and weaken the surface. Sandblasting is therefore not suitable for sensitive materials such as aluminium or plastics. Glass bead blasting, on the other hand, is gentler and suitable for a wider range of materials and applications. It creates a clean and matt surface without leaving any damage.
Glass bead blasting
- Gentle process without damaging the surface
- Removes dirt, rust, paint and other impurities
- Creates a clean, smooth and matt surface
- Preparation of the surface for further finishing steps
- Reusable glass beads
- Environmentally friendly process without environmentally harmful residues
Pre- and post-treatment
Before starting glass bead blasting, the surface to be processed must be thoroughly cleaned and degreased to achieve the best results. After blasting, the glass bead residue should be removed from the surface and the surface cleaned again. To protect the surface from renewed contamination, preservation or lacquering can be applied. A polish or further finishing steps can also be carried out after glass bead blasting to achieve an individual and high-quality result.
Metall, Kunststoff & mehr
Glass bead blasting is suitable for a wide range of materials such as metals (steel, aluminium, copper, brass, stainless steel), plastics (polyurethane, PVC, ABS), ceramics, glass, wood, rubber and other materials. However, it is always advisable to carry out a material test before glass bead blasting to ensure that the material is suitable for the process and will not be damaged.
