What Is Bead Blasting?
Bead blasting is a type of abrasive blasting service that uses tiny metal beads to clean impurities from concrete surfaces. Abrasive cleaning is performed by shooting beads at a surface using air pressure.
Metal beads used in the process can vary in size and cut for different surface textures after blasting.
- Larger beads produce a coarser, more conductive surface.
- Smaller beads produce a smoother, shinier finish.
- Sharp-cut beads can be useful for heavy duty cleaning.
- Round beads are gentler on metal surfaces.
What Are the Advantages of Bead Blasting?
Beads are inexpensive to produce, and they can be re-used several times, which makes bead blasting a cost-effective service. This is an environmentally-friendly process that leaves no residue and poses no health or safety hazards.
