Glass granules (glass particles/crushed glass) is a non-ferrous reusable blasting media. Due to the angular shape of the particles, this blasting media has a grinding, stripping effect on the workpiece being treated.
In comparison to glass beads, it is more aggressive, but still often used for the same applications.
Glass granules can also be used in combination with glass beads.
Due to the relatively low purchase cost, it is used mainly outside or in areas with continual blasting media loss.
