Peening Media Ceramic Shot
|Publication Date:||1 February 2013|
The complete requirements for procuring the product shall consist of this document and the latest issue of the basic specification, AMS2431.
Ceramic shot conforming to this specification is typically intended for use in peening of metal surfaces to impart compressive stresses to these surfaces thereby increasing resistance to fatigue and stress-corrosion cracking. Generally, ceramic shot may be used where ferrous contamination of the part is undesirable or very hard parts (over 60 HRC) are to be peened for maximum residual compressive stress.
