Glass Bead Blasting

Supplier: Rockpress

Glass bead blasting is an environmentally-friendly metal finishing technique that produces an attractive and natural-looking satin finish.

Price Guide: POA

It can be applied to stainless steel and aluminium work with spectacular results.

Glass bead blasting is also more cost-effective than manual polishing, particularly for products that feature intricate shapes and profiles.

The glass bead blasting process uses compressed air to blast small spheres of glass beads from a nozzle at very high velocity (.5Ra) into every corner and recess of the target object, resulting in a seamless and uniform satin finish. Glass bead blasting works equally effectively for a single component or a complicated welded assembly of pipe, plate, sheet and angle – a perfect finish is easily achieved in all cases.

While its application is almost limitless, Rockpress has used glass bead blasting as an ideal finish for products used in these industries:

  • Food processing
  • Structural stainless walkways and platforms
  • Architectural products in coastal areas
  • Abattoir equipment
  • Architectural aluminium products

Rockpress has a 24 m3 in-house glass bead blasting booth, so we can easily apply this finish to large-scale assemblies.
