As well as cleaning to a high finish, peening strengthens the metal at the surface level where fatigue cracks and corrosion normally occur and relieves stresses in metal near welding joints.

Glass bead is used to blast clean a metal surface. Glass beads are a non-ferrous media which are used to peen metals such as stainless steel and aluminium. This media keeps the metal substrate free of ferrous contamination whilst stilll achieving a smooth satin finish.
Metal surfaces often need to be cleaned and textured for aesthetic purposes. The bluish tinge from welding can be removed to give a more uniform finish.
