Several creative “rolled” finishes have been developed for aesthetic applications. Inc. such as grinding.

I N T R O D U C T I O N Surface finish is an important factor in any specification or purchase order for stainless steel regardless of the intended end use. 6. 2D. 2B. 1. The finishes in this brochure are not described in the ASTM standards.” The finish should be properly identified by either the standard industry designation. 3. The Specialty Steel Industry of North America has a designer handbook Finishes for Stainless Steel which details the standard industry finishes (Nos. The choice of finish should never be left to the supplier. 7 and 8 plus Bright Annealed. 4. . For those applications where appearance is important. by the trade name or designation for proprietary finishes. This handbook is designed to provide a sampling of the “Special Finishes” that can be obtained in today’s marketplace. and Mill-buffed). finish is a design element and must be specified. Information about the standard mill and polished finishes described in the ASTM standards can be found in SSINA’s Designer Handbook: Finishes for Stainless Steel. and the specification should never be a loosely worded description such as “type 304 with a brushed finish” or “embossed finished.

Numerous patterns exist but the most popular mimic fabrics like linen. the rolling direction should be marked on the back of the panel.Rolled finishes are created when a stainless steel coil is passed through a set of rolls.

Because there can be considerable variations in scratch length and other aspects of appearance. they are effective in hiding light random scratching. Angel Hair was designed to hide light random scratching in hightraffic areas.
