- Polishing and its mechanical properties
Polishing is the process of creating a smooth and shiny surface by using cotton discs and high grade metal polishing compounds, leaving a surface with a significant mirror-like reflection.
The strength of polished products is normally higher than their rougher counterparts, owing to the removal of stress concentrations present in the rough surface. They take the form of corners and other defects which magnify the local stress beyond the inherent strength of the material.
We offer polishing of sheet metals and details of complex shapes, generating mirror-like surface finishes.
Materials available for polishing:
• stainless steel
