Shot Blasting

Is most often used to clean a part of corrosion or scale, and also to prepare a surface prior to coating. Steel shot is thrown at the parts at excessively high speeds, impregnating the surface and therefore removing unwanted foreign matter. 


Shot Peening

Is similar to shot blasting, differing slightly in the process and in the end result. While blasting relies on an abrasive process to chip away minute pieces of the product, shot peening relies more on the mechanism of plasticity. Each particle acts as a ball-peen hammer. The goal of shot peening, more often than not, is to replace tensile stress with compressive stress, therefore strengthening the part.


Whether it's blasting or peening you need, Latem Industries uses three primary sizes of steel shot to achieve it's finishes. Our S70, S230 and GS18 shots have proven to be highly effective in delivering the results our customers rely on us for.
