Is used to finish stainless steel and aluminum as it produces a fine, even finish with an attractive slight luster. It can also be used to refinish aluminum automotive parts such as alloy wheels, manifolds, crankcases, gearbox cases and water pumps.
The glass beads are applied to a surface using low air pressure. This process removes paint, rust and corrosion from all types of metals, from autos, trucks, equipment, machinery engine blocks, heads and intakes. Using the bead blasting process a surface can be cleaned without any damage. The beads come in a variety of sizes.
Glass beading is chemically inert and environmentally friendly. This method of metal cleaning is an acceptable method when properly controlled. The glass beads used in this process are made from lead-free, soda like type glass, containing no free silica that is made into preformed ball shapes. The glass beads can be recycled approximately 30 times. Glass beading is an effective process used in automotive restoration and paint removal. This process produces a much smoother and brighter finish than angular abrasives. There is no dimensional change to the metal surface. Glass beading leaves no embedded contaminates or residue. This process smoothes away any surface defects. You will be able to see every dent, stretch mark, file stroke, and every stroke of the sand paper. Glass beading can also improve corrosion resistance.
