The stainless steel surface brushed process is a surface treatment method that forms lines on the surface of the workpiece by grinding the product to achieve a decorative effect. Because the surface brushed process can reflect the texture of metal materials, it has been favored by more and more users and more and more widely used.

Application of brushed stainless steel

There are many different forms of metal surface treatment, such as: sandblasting (to form a matte pearl silver surface), polishing (to form a mirror surface), embossing (to suppress various textures), electroplating (covering a layer of other metal), spraying ( Cover other non-metallic coatings), and brushed (form a satin-like effect). Compared with other surface treatments, brushed process can make the metal surface obtain a non-mirror-like metallic luster, which has a very strong decorative effect like silk satin. It is like giving ordinary metal new vitality and life, so the current brushed treatment has more More and more market recognition and wide application. For example, in the construction industry, there are elevator door panels, escalator decorative panels, and in the construction hardware industry, faucets, hinges, handles, locks, etc.; kitchen utensils such as range hoods, stainless steel stoves, sinks, and so on. In recent years, various electronic products have pushed the application of wire drawing to a climax, such as notebook computer panels, keyboard panels, etc., mobile phone panels, LCD frame surfaces, battery covers, camera protection covers, and digital camera lens slides. Cover etc. There are various other electronic products, such as: MP3, MP4, DVD player, projector and so on.

Classification of brushed stainless steel

There is no uniform classification and name for drawing processing. Usually divided into straight wire and chaotic wire according to different surface effects. Straight silk is also called hairline; chaotic silk is also called snow pattern. The quality of silk pattern is very subjective. Each user has different requirements for surface lines and different preferences for line lines. Some people think that their hair looks good, while others like snow patterns; some like long yarn, while others like short yarn. Because of the variety of thread effects, it is usually difficult to describe and delimit specifically. Instead, determine the effect of drawing thread by determining the processing method of drawing, the grinding product used, and the process parameters. Let us further discuss the processing methods of surface drawing.

Processing method of brushed stainless steel

The processing method of the surface drawing should be based on the requirements of the drawing effect. Different processing methods are selected for the size and shape of different workpiece surfaces. There are two ways of drawing wire: manual drawing and mechanical drawing. Common hand-drawing is mostly used in 3M's industrial scouring pads.
