Glass beads can be used on many materials from stainless steel to plastic and many other materials in between. Along with this flexibility, there are many benefits to using glass beads as blasting media in sandblasting. They are less abrasive than other materials, leave no embedded residue, and are environmentally safe, among other benefits.
