Price Guide: POA

Surface treatment with glass bead can be used as a finishing process or as a supplement treatment. For example, initial treatment utilising aluminium oxide followed by glass bead greatly improves the surface finish, leaving a satin lustre. Glass bead is a relatively gentle surface treatment which makes it ideal for use on delicate and precision parts as it won’t distort dimensions and results in a smooth polished surface.
