What is Glass Bead Blasting?

Glass bead blasting is the process of blasting a surface with tiny glass beads at extremely high pressure in order to clean the surface of any external deposits such as paint or rust. Despite the high pressure, the metal is not damaged by the process. In the automotive industry, glass bead blasting is often used to remove paint from a vehicle prior to priming and re-painting, as well as removed rust from a vehicle.
