Most of you reading this are probably familiar with the various applications that glass blast media can have for a wide variety of products. From the planes that get our nation moving to the fighter jets that keep our country safe, glass bead cleaning and abrasive blasting play a significant role in some of the most sophisticated technologies in America. Moreover, there’s now an option for leaders in American industry who don’t want to outsource the finishing and treatment of their products to countries halfway across the world.

We’ve been in business for nearly 50 years, and are the expert company to trust for any of your industrial metal treatment needs.

What Are the Benefits of Glass Bead Cleaning?

Without a doubt, the most significant benefit of using glass blast media to finish or clean the metal during production is how quick and efficient the process is. We remove significant amounts of grime or impurities in just a few hours, even for larger applications.

You also gain the benefit of combining the following steps, normally applied separately, into one convenient treatment:

  • • Deburring the metal: Removing unwanted edges caused by the welding and manufacturing process can allow for faster assembly of the finished product, and without the time-consuming step of manually deburring the metal.
  • • Peening: Reduce tensile stress, making your product stronger and more durable.
  • • Cleaning: Prepares the metal for the electroplating process (if required) and cleans faster with less drying time required than for solvent-based methods.
  • • Finishing the metal: Glass blast media can create an attractive surface for consumer-end products or can create a uniform smoothness over the surface of the metal.

Should I Use Coarse or Fine Glass Media?

Abrasive blasting can create a wide variety of textures. Using our technology, we can produce the right finish for the end purpose of your products. That’s why we recommend consulting with the experts at Burbank Steel Treating Inc. With our over 50 years of experience, we can evaluate the designated finish for the task required and suggest alternatives if necessary.

For aerospace and medical applications, most jobs will require fine-grade glass beads for cleaning. We recommend coarser finishes for industrial applications.
