Bead Blasting

It can be used to reduce the level of machining marks in a component but also to refine the surface so that a more regular and even finish is achieved. This is particularly beneficial where a series of different manufacturing methods have been used to produce a component or product each leaving a different surface condition. Bead blasting can also be used to restore a previously tarnished or aged finish back to a fresh clean surface finish.
