JOTON GLASS BEADS JSC. develops JGB M8 Glass bead product used for Blasting to clean object surfaces by compressed air. Since the glass beads are fired by high temperature, created the stable structure and increased hardness, shaped in sphere, they could effectively against impacts… For superior uses, the method of using sand blast to clean the surface of material has been replaced by using glass bead, in order to get the highest efficiency and to save the cost by glass bead recycle.

The different size ranges is used to clean the object surfaces depend on materials, rust levels or usage purposes of the objects.

JGB M8 has following kinds:


Product codes Size (µm)
JGB M81 850 – 425

  6. Removing the stain on the surface of product before the electrostatic paint process
  7. Furthermore, the glass bead/glass granules blast can be designed to clean the special shaped products
  • There are 2 kinds of blasters
  1. Air blast: including spray gun with 2 heads, one is beads/granules input and one is for pressure Glass beads/Glass granules will be forced out by very high pressure. With this kind of machine, only the light weight abrasive can be used, such as glass beads, aluminum oxide…
  2. Wheel blast: including the wheel operated by the engine. Abrasive will go into the wheel, the speed of the wheel will increase abrasive and then get out through the spray head with a very high pressure. This machine will be suitable for heavy weight abrasives, such as steel shot, steel grit…
