Glass Bead for Peening
Â Glass bead peeningÂ is an effective way of increasing the fatigue properties of metal parts and resistance to stress corrosion cracking. Glass beads are very hard and lightweight thus producing a high magnitude layer of residual compressive stress while leaving a smooth surface finish. This is beneficial in many metal fatigue applications where surface finish is concern.
Glass beads are a non-ferrous media and are readily used to peen non-ferrous metals such as aluminum and stainless steel. Glass beads are available in smaller media sizes than traditional steel peening media making them useful on delicate parts with intricate geometry.
Glass beads are chemically inert, recyclable and environmentally friendly. Air nozzle style equipment is the most commonly used means for glass bead peening.
- Reduce crack spread and corrosion of pieces while increasing lifecycle
- Create a surface layer of compression, controlled thickness, without damaging the surface
- Do not contaminate parts thanks to the chemical neutrality particularly suitable for pieces in stainless steel, titanium, special alloys...
- Obtain the desired level of shot peening without changing the dimension or shape of pieces.
