Masterblast®

Glass Bead Peening

Glass bead peening is an effective way of increasing the fatigue properties of metal parts and resistance to stress corrosion cracking. The Masterblast® beads are hard and lightweight thus producing a high magnitude layer of residual compressive stress while leaving a smooth surface finish.

OMicron®

OMicron® solid glass beads are hard, resistant (high crush strength), inert, spherical and have excellent chemical and heat resistance.

Two standard particle size distributions are available :

Microperl®

Microperl® solid glass beads are hard, resistant (high crush strength), inert, spherical and have excellent chemical and heat resistance properties.

Two standard particle size distributions are available :

Echostar® BCP Tecno

Our Echostar® BCP Tecno range consists of glass spheres with a special surface treatment acting as a hardener. The glass beads enhance the polymerization of the resin (component A) in multi-component road marking systems and provide high retro reflectivity and durability. This marking technology is accessible for any type of machine. Due to this technology the road marking dries quicker and more efficiently decreasing the down times of application and reducing the overall costs of striping.

Echostar® WBP Be Fast

In order to use waterborne paints in combination with special polymer emulsions based on the Fastrack TM technology,  Sovitec® and Dow teamed up to create a specific product family called Echostar Be Fast R. This product family is applied like any other traditional Drop-on bead range.

Echopure®

Sovitec’s Echopure® glass beads are worldwide recognized as the best glass beads in their class. The beads with a refractive index above 1,55 are manufactured via a unique process creating bead sizes between 400µm and 2000 µm at a quality level above 90%.

Echolux®

Sovitec’s Echolux® product range are micro glass beads with a diameter less than 1 mm . Echolux spheres are made from 100 % recycled glass. Applying Sovitec’s Echolux® glass beads is one of the most cost-effective ways to increase highway safety. All Echolux beads are produced according to the European Norm EN1423 and respect other international standards.

Starmixx®

Starmixx® beads of Sovitec are typically used to blend with paint , thermoplastics or 2/3 components based on reactive systems. Starmixx beads are produced from recycled glass or from a virgin glass recipe in order to obtain a quality level above 80%.
