It is essential that the interleaving powder is soft enough to avoid pitting the glass and has a tight particle size distribution (PSD). The reasons are firstly to allow a reproducible and efficient application of the powder onto the glass, and second to avoid a few large beads allowing the smaller beads to fall out when the glass is raised to the vertical position leading to glass on glass contact.
Makevale’s manufacturing technology allows the consistent production of beads with a tight, defined particle size distribution and specified flow characteristics. We are able to achieve these tight tolerances through a combination of varying surface characteristics via reagents and process, sieving, wash water type, and the addition of flow modifiers.
If you are interested in acrylic beads suitable for interleaving powders in glass storage and transportation, we have a wide range of suitable acrylics and a proven track record in producing new acrylics with unique properties.
