Airport Beads, FAA Spec. Type 3, High-visibility Reflective Glass Beads
Certified by the Federal Aviation Administration, these Type 3 Airport Beads are intensely reflective and perfect for a variety of uses. Add a new dimension to your crafts or improve safety in your projects!
Airport Reflective Glass Beads reflect brighter than any other glass bead. In fact, these Type 3 airport beads are specifically designed to illuminate lines on airport landing strips to help pilots land safely - hence the name!
This intense retro-reflectivity is made possible through the use of virgin glass and a high-tech manufacturing process that results in a Type 3 bead with a 1.93 refractive index. ViziGlow's Airport Beads are the brightest and most durable glass bead you can buy!
