|New Zealand’s only commercial Stainless Steel Sheet Polisher giving the advantage of a consistent finish. All sheets supplied ex-stock are polished on the same machine, using the same settings.
We produce a satin (#4, brushed, or linished) finish. Pre-polish and in process inspection allows continual monitoring of quality. Although typically polished one side, we can produce exactly the same finish on both sides, on request. In comparison, mill polished material is reverse-ground and is likely to have a slightly different appearance to the prime polished side.
Coarse polishes on the reverse side may be achieved for applications requiring a “key” for painting or for improved laminating (bonding) performance.
If there is a chance that replacement panels may be required in the future, use our polish from the start. There are as many different finishes as there are polishers. We maintain a consistent set up, thereby enabling a closer match between sheets produced months or even years apart.
In the case of longer lengths a reduction in the amount of welding and post fabrication labour costs is achievable, as well as maintaining a consistent visual quality over the full length.
Only stainless steel and occasionally aluminium & brass are processed, using different polishing belts. Consequently there is no risk of cross metallic contamination.
Polyethylene or PVC adhesive film can be applied to one or both sides to protect the material from incidental scratching. Various films are available on application to suit many different applications such as Laser Cutting, Deep Drawing, Perforating, Punching, Folding, etc.
Ink jet marking can be applied to the material or the protective film on request to identify material type, size, part numbers, or your company name for advertising purposes.
