Glass bead blasting & shot peening for special surfaces

Glass bead blasting

Glass bead blasting, also known as shot peening, is a gentle and effective method of surface treatment that removes impurities, rust and colour from various materials. The process is suitable for a wide range of applications, from the automotive industry to medical technology, and produces a clean, smooth and matt surface. With its ability to treat even delicate materials, glass bead blasting is becoming a favoured choice in surface technology.

Clean, smooth, matt

In this blasting process, compressed air is used to blast the glass beads onto the surface to be processed. This creates a controllable pressure that shoots the glass beads onto the surface. The impact of the glass beads removes impurities and discolouration from the surface without damaging it. The size and hardness of the glass beads can be adjusted depending on the area of application and the desired result. This versatile process is quick and easy to perform, making it suitable for use in many areas to clean, deburr and finish surfaces.

No scratches

In contrast to glass bead blasting, sandblasting is an abrasive process in which hard particles such as sand, corundum or steel are blasted onto the surface to be treated. This usually leaves visible marks that can alter and weaken the surface. Sandblasting is therefore not suitable for sensitive materials such as aluminium or plastics. Shot blasting, on the other hand, is gentler and is suitable for a wider range of materials and applications. It produces a clean and matt surface without leaving any damage.

Glass bead blasting


  • Gentle process without damaging the surface
  • Removes dirt, rust, paint and other impurities
  • Creates a clean, smooth and matt surface
  • Preparation of the surface for further finishing steps
  • Reusable glass beads
  • Environmentally friendly process without environmentally harmful residues

Pre- and post-treatment

Before starting the blasting process, the surface to be treated must be thoroughly cleaned and degreased to achieve the best results. After blasting, the glass bead residue should be removed from the surface and the surface should be cleaned again. To protect the surface from renewed contamination, it can be preserved or painted. A polish or further finishing steps can also be carried out after glass bead blasting to achieve a customised and high-quality result.

Metal, plastic & more


This process is suitable for a wide range of materials such as metals (steel, aluminium, copper, brass, stainless steel), plastics (polyurethane, PVC, ABS), ceramics, glass, wood, rubber and other materials. However, it is always advisable to carry out a material test before glass bead blasting to ensure that the material is suitable for the process and will not be damaged.

Refine surfaces

Fine blasting

Fine blasting is a surface treatment process in which fine abrasive particles, often grains of sand, are blown onto a surface under high pressure. This process is used to clean, prepare and improve surfaces. Fine blasting removes impurities, rust and old coatings to prepare the surface for new coatings. It can also selectively remove material to create desired textures or surface structures. This versatile process is used in a variety of industries, from automotive to heritage conservation, and helps to improve surface quality and durability.

Refinement with precision


  • Effectively removes dirt, rust and old coatings.
  • Prepares surfaces for new coatings by creating a rough adhesion base.
  • Enables targeted removal of material for desired textures or structures.
  • Used in various industries, from the automotive industry to the preservation of historical monuments.
  • Contributes to increasing the quality of surfaces and improves durability.
