Together with our shot peening customers, we help ensure a safer, more productive world.
10 Ways Shot Peening Delivers Quality for Today’s Manufacturers
Abrasive blasting (formerly known as sandblasting) also is called grit blasting, bead blasting, media blasting, soda blasting, dry blasting, sponge blasting, shot blasting, and shot peening. However, sand should never be used when abrasive blasting because breathing abrasive containing crystalline (free) silica can lead to serious or fatal lung disease.
