Mechanical glass bead blasting

Glass bead blasting may be compared to other types of mechanical pre-treatments such as grinding, brushing and burnishing.

Often the word glass bead blasting is used even though different types of blasting mediums are used such as high-grade corundum, glass beads and plastic granulate.
