Glass bead blasting is a process in which metal products or blanks are wrapped in foil or other material to prevent corrosion or surface damage. This process is often used to protect metals and alloys from damage during storage or transport.
There are several different methods of ballooning, the most common of which are: foil blasting, vacuum packing blasting and wrapping paper or cloth blasting.
Foil wrapping is done by wrapping the metal product or semi-finished product in a special foil that is able to resist corrosion and damage. The film can consist of different materials such as polyethylene, polypropylene or aluminium foil.
Vacuum packaging is carried out by wrapping the metal product or semi-finished product in a vacuum bag, which is then blown out. This creates a vacuum space around the product that protects the surface from corrosion and damage.
When choosing a glass bead blasting method, it is important to consider not only the protective properties, but also the economic aspect and the convenience of handling the products. For example, foil blasting may be cheaper than vacuum blasting but less effective in protecting the surface.
In general, glass bead blasting helps to protect metal products and semi-finished goods from corrosion and damage during storage and transport. Each has its advantages and disadvantages and the choice depends on the specific application and surface protection requirements. However, we will be happy to advise you on the right choice.
