About SWARCO Indusferica
SWARCO Indusferica is part of the international SWARCO Group and utilizes the universal benefits of glass beads for special industrial applications. What began in 1969 as a business producing small reflective glass beads for road markings has evolved into one of the world’s leading manufacturers of micro glass beads, with production sites in Europe and the USA. Micro glass beads serve as a high-grade filler material in industrial applications and as a blasting abrasive for surface treatments. In the field of traffic technology, the micro glass beads embedded in the marking material reflect headlamp light to keep road markings visible. This increases road safety, particularly at night.
