Glass Beads


Reflective glass beads are dropped on to the Thermoplastic Road Marking Materials during application for better night visibility.  These beads can also act as a protective layer for the road markings, therefore reducing their wear and tear against tires.

For optimum reflectivity, glass beads should be embedded and not submerged.  To obtain maximum reflectivity of individual glass beads, ensure that 60% of the bead is below surface of the thermoplastic road markings. If the glass beads are not embedded deeply enough, the light goes through without being retroreflected. On the other hand, if the glass beads are submerged, the light will get trapped within.

Contact our sales representatives for a sample of the glass beads today.
