Ceramic beads

Product characteristics

Ceramic beads also known as ceramic microgranules are one of the most resistant and pure, mineral, non-metallic abrasives. They have round and smooth grains. Ceramic beads perform 10-12 times higher impact resistance than glass beads. Ceramic beads do not wear and do not break down explosively into many sharp and small particles like glass beads. Ceramic microgranules do not have small sharp edges after smashing like other non-metallic abrasives. Ideal spherical shape guarantees the high level of uniformity of the worked surface.
