Vibration polishing: circular-brushed finishes for stainless steel plates
Vibration finish or non-directional polishing is known in the market by various names, e.g., circular brushing, circular polishing, vibration polishing, Vortex or non-directional polish and, due to its particular visual appearance, the finish is even poetically referred to as "Angel Hair".
At stainlessinox, this particular product range is called VIBES.
stainlessinox: circular-brushed stainless steel sheets of the highest quality
The vibration-polishing line used by stainlessinox is one of the most modern and efficient in today's markets.
It offers great flexibility in applying various polished-finish designs, as well as sufficient capacity for even the largest projects.
Many years of experience in the production of circular-polished inox metal sheets, meticulous recording of surface roughness and gloss plus controlled and precise production processes are the perfect basis for this high-quality finish manufactured by stainlessinox.
Our large production capacities also guarantee the fastest possible delivery service.
At stainlessinox, we offer various dimensions, grades and finishing options for our circular-brushed stainless steel sheets.
stainlessinox produces its VIBES finish with the following stainless steel plate dimensions:
stainlessinox offers vibration-polished stainless steel in the following grades:
At stainlessinox, circular-brushed stainless steel sheets and plates can also be produced in combination with a wide range of colors. When applying color to vibration-polished inox surfaces, we use our PVD/TiN and nanoINOX® AFP/ETC coating processes.
Any variation of vibration finish can also be coated with our CLEAR nanoINOX® AFP/ETC coating which adds a transparent, protective layer that makes the surface more pollution-repellent and much easier to clean. Such properties are not only beneficial in public, highly frequented locations and areas where direct contact with the surface is possible, but also on façades and other applications where cleaning requires effort and cost.
Vibration-polished stainless steel: the benefits of circular brushing
The process of vibration finishing creates a non-directional, homogeneous, matte surface. Aside from its visual attractiveness, an additional advantage of this circular-brushed finish is that fingerprints or small scratches are not visible on the -polished inox steel surface.
To sum up its properties, vibration-polished or circular-brushed stainless steel surfaces are characterized as follows:
Low roughness values (Ra)
An attractive, matte, patina-style appearance
High resistance to minor surface damage
Can be cut and installed non-directionally
Applications of circular-brushed stainless steel sheets
Circular-polished inox sheets and plates are often used in areas where frequent contact with the surface is present, for example in:
Kitchens and catering (worktops, stainless steel credenzas and sinks, equipment and accessories, cladding for built-in appliances)
Construction of appliances for the food industry
Construction of devices for the pharmaceutical industry
