Peentex Surface texturing and Architectural Finishes

Peentex is a decorative textured finish applied by controlled shot peening which can be used for architectural finishings on metal, glass, wood and acrylic

Controlled shot peening has long been associated with engineered surface finishing of metals including steels, stainless steels, aluminium, titanium and copper alloys. It forms an essential part of the manufacturing process used within the engineering industry to improve wear and corrosion resistance and prevent premature fatigue failures.

We are able to accurately control and repeat the peening process to produce a range of different textures and effects creating highly decorative designs and finishes.

Peentex surface texturing also has practical uses for high traffic areas as the finish diffuses direct light and glare disguising fingerprints and mild blemishes as well as giving a higher degree of wear and damage tolerance.  It is also non-directional so ideally suited for welded joint and frames, giving the weld bead a more uniform appearance.

 

 

Applications and benefits of Peentex finishing

Applications

  • Internal & External cladding and fittings
  • Signage and nameplates
  • Hand rails
  • Countertops, reception, desks, etc.
  • Street furniture
  • Sculptures and monuments
  • Metal and glass decoration
  • Welded frames and structures
  • General construction

Benefits

  • Ideal for high traffic areas
  • Harder surface finish on metals
  • Improves wear/damage tolerance
  • Improved resistance to scratches
  • Makes surfaces easier to clean
  • Resistance to written graffiti and stickers
  • Disguises fingerprints and mild blemishes
  • Non-directional finish
  • Creates highly decorative mirror designs and finishes
