 Polished/brushed finishes

Coarse/fine (#3 or #4 polish), polished, brushed, Deco duplo (polished and brushed)

​​
Polishing a stainless steel surface with an abrasive belt of a certain grain size leads to a homogeneous, satin-like and highly decorative surface finish.

By optimizing the grain of the belt the surface finish can be fine-tuned to meet specific application requirements. A finer grain of the abrasive belt results in a higher gloss and more even finish. Using successively finer grit belts, an almost mirror-like surface can be produced.

The ground or polished surface has more or less clearly visible scoring, which also makes scratches from daily wear and tear less visible. A polished surface is also easier to recreate and blend, for example after repairs or welding work, compared with a 2B or 2R surface.

Because of Outokumpu’s ability to provide both wet and dry polishing, we have an exceptionally wide range that can meet any demands or requirements.

The use of brushing (with Scotch Brite®, for example) provides a silky-matt finish without clear grinding scores.

 Patterned finishes

Patterning of stainless steel leads to an enhanced combination of design and function. Outokumpu offers a large variety of patterned surface finishes, each with different gloss and reflection effects. As standard we emboss on 2R and by request on 2B finishes.

Our most popular designs are Deco Linen, Deco Haze, Deco Laser, Deco Microlinen, Deco Diamonds, Deco Square, Deco Microchecker, and Deco Leather Grain. Individual patterns can also be developed according to specific needs. After embossing, a recovery annealing is applied for improved formability and, due to tension levelling, an extremely high flatness can be achieved.

Applications


Elevators, escalators, interior architecture, anti-slip surfaces, sinks, claddings, facades, cash desks, refrigerated display cases, housing for machines
