Physical Properties

  • Form: Spherical Solid Bead
  • Color: Clear
  • Specific Gravity: 1.06
  • Several Sizes (mm): .1-.3, .3-.6, .6-.1.0, 1.0-1.5
  • Odor: Styrene Odor apparent

Beads from 1.5-2.3 mm can be manufactured but not all will be spherical. They are more expensive due to small yields for this size range.


This inexpensive bead is intended to be used as a grinding media in most milling applications that requirevery low contamination levels from wear. Products that benefit from this type of media are generally low viscosity and shear sensitive. Norstone makes no warranty regarding the specific use of this bead or intended end use for the products made with this bead. Choose from several grades of our HCC Co-Polymer Beads
