Stainlessinox offers multi-style surface polishing on the stainless steel materials, including coil to coil wet polishing, sheet to sheet dry polishing or sheet to sheet wet polishing, mirror polishing, with the main styles No.4, HL, 8K, SB, etc. By polishing the cold rolled steel sheet with an abrasive belt of a certain grain size (grit), a surface is obtained which has a silver-like metallic shine, which improves the decorative effect.
The finer the grain of the abrasive belt, the brighter and more even the finish. Surface roughness and structure can also be affected by different polishing techniques, even if no differences are detectable with the naked eye.
Wet polishing, produces a finer surface than dry polishing. The grain size (grit) of the abrasive belt and the resultant surface roughness of the sheet do therefore necessarily not have a fixed relation. Wet polishing also produces a cleaner surface with less microscopic defects than dry polishing, this means that dirt, bacteria and corrosive substances generally do not attach as easily to wet polished surfaces.
