Quick Overview: 
  • Great for small projects
  • Choose between 2lb, 5lb or 10 lb bags
  • Federal Specification Type I road grade
  • Perfect for homeowners, school projects or small line striping jobs


If 50lbs of reflective glass beads is too much, we offer some smaller sizes for testing or for smaller projects that don't require near as much as what a full bag offers. These are the same product as our Reflective Paint Glass Beads Type 1, sold in smaller bags.  Choose between a 2lb, 5lb or 10lb bag.

These are great for school projects, homeowners who want a reflective street address (might be easier said than done, we've never tried it) or visibility marker for a driveway.  These would also be great for small property owners or property maintenance folks who want to refresh a few lines on a parking lot and want the high visibility reflective beads can offer.

Maybe you want to double check the quality of our product before making a larger purchase.

Whatever the project calls for, if it's a small one, these will work perfect.

If you need a higher quality glass bead with a better reflectivity score, take a look at our Type 3 glass beads instead.
