Are you a parking lot line striping professional looking to save some money buying glass beads in bulk?

The Federal specification TT-B-1325D Type 1 glass beads we offer, create reflective paint parking lots and roads where retroreflectivity is required. These glass beads can either be applied to freshly painted surfaces or it can be used with a line striping dispenser to be applied with the paint.

Buying a half pallet of 20 bags is great for small one or two man line striping contractors who want to maximize profits through the year by saving money buying in bulk, but not over-doing it for the year.

Comparing This Product? Make sure you look at the glass bead bag weight when you're comparing prices. It might even make more sense to compare the price per pound when figuring up cost.

These beads can be used with oil / solvent based alkyd paint, water based paint or thermoplastic extrude.

If you apply the glass beads manually by hand, simply sprinkle the beads over the fresh paint. You will need to make sure it is applied while the paint is still wet, otherwise the beads won't stick or will wear away much faster, leaving you with a very low quality job and a customer who might find someone else to do it next time. Also, if you're applying it by hand, you might be interested in our glass bead dispenser which also includes a wide diffuser attachment.

You can figure to use approximately 5 to 6 pounds of glass beads, for every 1 gallon of paint.
