glass beads

I haven't checked what the micro spheres mesh size is . usually glass beads for bead blasting. it comes in different mesh sizes. dofferemt prices from different suppliers. when we were making Oem parts for the Harley factory we had to bead blast some tig welds to clean before the chrome plating process. the machinery was old and leaked beads on the ground. in the right sunlight you would see a rainbow floating above the ground. the beads eventually break down and wouldn't clean or probably insulate as well. I used to take the change our residue home to use in my blast cabinet. we got the best price from W W Grainger co
