Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well I needed something that was non-aggressive. I tried the black beauty ultra fine, as it was the only thing I could get local, but it was way too aggressive. This product gets rid of the rust, but keeps the finish smooth.

Questions & Answers

What happens if you exceed the 60 psi rating when blasting?

Asked by: Stanley Spadowski
I just recently asked Eastwood tech support this same question and I was told that instead of the blast media bouncing back as it hits the surface of what's being blasted, it shatters and turns to a fine dust quickly destroying and wasting the blast media you spent money on. It's unlikely the higher pressure will do damage to what you're blasting with glass bead media. I initially didn't follow the instructions of 60 psi maximum on the regulator gauge with the gun triggered and went through a full bag quickly, turning it to a fine powder blasting in the range of 100-120 psi.

What is the best media to use in a B60 blast cabinet for prepping aluminum wheels for powder coating ?

Asked by: Chad77
For a softer metal like this, we typically recommend Ground Glass or Glass bead as other media would be too aggressive.

Do you recommend the 70/100 or 100/170 for Glass bead-blasting ordnance stainless steel to achieve a more non-reflective satin stainless look? I'm trying to minimize hand prints while also trying to avoid a rough-feeling finish. Many thanks!

Asked by: Just An Old Coot
The 70/100 would be a more aggressive media. The 100/170 would be the better choice between the two medias.

Is this glass beads media comparable to white 220 grit?

This glass bead is 100-170 grit. It will be slightly more coarse than 220 grit.
