Type 3, High Index Standard Airport Grade Reflective Glass Beads
(180-250 microns, sand like texture)
Type 3, High Index Reflective Micro Beads (Micro-Powder)
(under <100 microns, confectioners sugar like texture)
All of our High Performance reflective glass beads made using a unique and revolutionary manufacturing process. Purest raw materials are melted into highly reflective materials and shaped to fine glass beads. These beads offer high performance and durability due to their extremely smooth surfaces, greater than > 98 % roundness and less than 1% air inclusions.
Applications include reflective sheeting, high performance road and airport striping, signs, arts, crafts, reflective paints and more. Mixing reflective glass beads into any medium including clear greatly reduces reflectivity. Beads should be applied on the surface only.
High Index Glass Beads are Type 3 with a refractive index of >1.93
