Material Selection

The selection of the particular surface finish for a stainless steel fabrication is an integral aspect of many machining projects. After all, each type of finish carries varying advantages and benefits, as well as multiple characteristics specific to that particular finish that may play a role in the end use of the piece.

A No. 3 finish, for example, provides a clean, coarse brushed appearance, and is often used in lab applications and tools, or in high-end kitchen appliances. This is completely different than a No. 2D finish, which is better when used with deep drawing applications. Knowing these differences are critical to choosing the right finish for your needs.

While working with the right fabrication experts means getting the right guidance along the way, knowing about these distinctions provides you with a great advantage over the competition.
