The finest results:
glass bead blasting
Thanks to our state-of-the art pressure blasting cabinet, we are now also able to offer our customers glass bead blasting for smaller components made of stainless steel and aluminium (e.g. aluminium rims). With this technology, particularly fine surface structures can be generated to the point of having a polishing effect. This process involves applying glass beads to the blasting material at high speeds thereby generating residual compressive stress. This increases the fatigue strength of the material being treated which, in turn, results in an increase of the surface's resistance to corrosion. The smaller the glass beads, the finer the result will be on the processed surface structure.
In comparison to sandblasting, the surface of the component is subject to considerably less abrasion with this method.
