High Resistance to Fracture: Bakul Shot is much more resistant to fracture, or breakage, than other media. As such our product tends to wear down and become smaller in size rather than fracture into sharp edge broken particles which may cause subsequent damage to the surface of the part being peened. Surface damage such as cuts, tears and embedded particles can reduce the fatigue benefits obtained with shot peening.
Surface Contamination: All shot peening processes leave a residue of the peening media on the surface of the material peened. Substantially less residue (as much as one tenth) is left when shot peening with premier Shot compared with other media.
Dust Generation: Another unavoidable result of shot peening processes is the generation of dust during operation. Some dust is produced when peening dirty or corroded parts and cannot be influenced by the media used. But other dust is generated by the deterioration of the peening media.
