Bead Types: (Type 3 High Index Beads are our most reflective)

High Index Standard –Type 3 are our brightest reflective beads manufactured using virgin glass. Considered Airport Grade due to their size, reflectiveness and clarity. These beads meet Federal specification TT-B-1325D. High Index beads offer superior performance and durability due to their extremely smooth surfaces, greater than > 98 % roundness and less than 1% air inclusions which results in a very high refractive index of > 1.93. Size range 180-600 microns, sugar like consistency

High Index Micro beads –Type 3 micro-beads (35-45 microns) are our brightest smallest reflective micro-beads, manufactured using virgin glass. (Very fine texture like  powdered sugar) These tiny High Index beads offer superior performance and durability due to their extremely smooth surfaces, greater than > 98 % roundness and less than 1% air inclusions which results in a very high refractive index of > 1.93.

High Index Reflective Glass Beads Features:

  • The brightest reflective glass beads! High performance retro-reflective glass beads significantly improve visibility of pavement markings. 
  • Same beads used on airports, local, state and federal roadways.
  • Great texture and very high retro-reflective visibility for arts, crafts and artist projects!

 Reflective glass beads should be spread directly on to wet paint ether by hand or with a line-striping dispenser. If you are applying the glass beads by hand, simply sprinkle the beads over the fresh paint. You will need to make sure beads are applied while the paint is still wet otherwise, they may not adhere properly. Reflective glass beads can be used with glues, adhesives, oil or water based paints. Cole Safety estimates that you will need approximately 5 to 6 pounds of our reflective glass beads, for every 1 gallon of paint you use.
