Description

CERAMIC BEADS

Ceramic beads are made from Zirconium Oxide.

The ceramic beads are produced from an extremely tough zirconium oxide ceramic. This product is free of iron and is therefore suitable for the treatment of stainless steel and aluminium. The rounded shape of the ceramic microspheres enables gentle cleaning and the creation of surfaces with a perfect optical finish. This blasting abrasive has a very high durability compared to glass beads. Ceramic beads are a high-tech blasting abrasive for the highest demands.

Through a melting process they are obtained in the form of spherical beads which are sorted according to their size.
