Blast Medium - Ballotini Impact Beads

Glass Bead Impact Media:

  • Impart a controlled, clean finish on a variety of metals.
  • Clean quickly without significant metal removal.
  • Clean, finish, peen and deburr in one operation.
  • Provide a unique surface finish
  • Cemically inert and will not leave ferrous or other undesirable residues on the surface of the workpiece.
  • Contains no free silica.
  • Environmentally safe.
  • Backed by Potters extensive technical knowledge and support.

Typical applications:

  • Cleaning:
    • Cleans and preps the surface of metal parts without changing tolerances, or imparting ferrous pollutants.
    • Combines cleaning, finishing and peening in one operation.
  • Finishing:
    • Creates a wide range of unique surface finishes that are easy to reproduce.
    • Blends machine marks, seals pores and the results offer the advantage of glass bead peening.
  • Peening:
    • Reduces the tensile stress in metal parts, increasing the fatigue limit.
    • Reduces stress corrosion cracking.
  • Deburring:
    • Removes burrs without damaging the parts and offers a peened surface in one operation.
