Measurement Results about Stainless Steel Beads

Comparison of Wearout Rate between Glass Beads and Stainless Steel Beads

(diagram to be inserted)

Stainless Steel Beads have a very long lifetime because they are unbreakable, unlike Glass Beads.
In the example shown in the upper diagram, the lifetime of Stainless Steel Beads is approximately 70 times that of Glass Beads.
Stainless Steel Beads have gained a good reputation for cost reduction as well as eco-friendliness because of their low waste generation.
