Type S, SOLID Micro Glass Beads

Glass Beads Type S for grinding, road marking, shot peening, shot blasting, as filler

SiLibeads Type S are optimal for the use as grinding and dispersing media in horizontal and vertical pearl mills for the wet grinding of paints, pigments, dyestuff, ink, agro-chemicals and minerals. As filling agent for chemicals, paper and plastic. The low wear rate of the agitator disc and of the grinding chamber allows to reduce the production costs.

The advantage that it brings to the cost-benefit aspect is evident.

  • glass beads for shot peening of the surface of metal, plastics, ceramics and wood
  • filling material for the modification of the physical properties of thermoplast and duroplast
  • in diameters > 0.8 mm, as reflection beads for road marking, specially to improve the visibility at night in case of rain, Type II marking
  • polishing agent for optical and interocular lenses; diameters between 0.3 - 0.4 mm and 0.4 - 0.6 mm show excellent results.


Our glass beads in the 0.05 mm and 5 mm size ranges, are produced through a special thermal rounding process. The particularity of this way of production is that is needs much less energy than other traditional melting processes.
