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.
