Metal Polishing

Metal Polishing

Why Metal Polishing?

Metal polishing is a process whereby machines with abrasive belts and wheels are used to sand the surface until the desired finish is achieved. This process eliminates oxide and dust from the metal surface, making this a prerequisite for other operations such as plating and powder coating. We can also utilize metal polishing as a single decorative process which would provide a smooth mirror finish.


By removing all corrosion, contamination, oxidation, and other surface blemishes, you are immediately enhancing the appearance of the part or piece. You can take this process a step further and apply a clear coat or anodize color to protect the mirror finish from further corrosion while increasing durability.

Types of Finishes

  • Brushed Satin Finish - Fine polishing lines going in one direction.
  • Grain Finish - A uniform finish that is rough leaving a course final surface.
  • Fine Finish - Leaves a smooth surface.
  • Smooth and Buffed Finish - A typical finish for chrome plating. The part has a bright appearance that is shiny but may have flaws.
  • Mirror Finish - All defects on the surface are removed, leaving a bright finish with a clear reflection. The part is first buffed than color buffed. The quality depends on the metal being polished.
