Peentex (tm)

Peentex is a decorative textured architectural finish applied by controlled shot peening which can be used on any metal.
A surface with a Peentex finish is peened per the customer’s specification to produce an appealing aesthetic effect. Designers and architects have specified the use of the Peentex process on internationally known structures such as the Statue of Liberty, the Louvre and the Dublin Spire.


Curtiss-Wright Surface Technologies has used the Peentex process to texture a variety of architectural metals including stainless steel, aluminum, and bronze. Our computer controlled equipment is capable of processing metal sheets up to 10-feet-wide by 100-feet-long. We also have the capability to add textures to small irregular shapes.
