The brushed finish is a surface treatment method that forms lines on the surface of the workpiece by grinding the product to achieve a decorative effect. Brushed finish is produced by mechanically polishing or wearing away the outer surface of the metal. Brush finishes can be applied overall or selectively, in one or multiple directions. To create a selective mechanical brush or a spun finish, a screen-printed resist ink is applied to the metals' surface prior to it being subjected to the mechanical brushing wheel. In doing so, the area protected by the resist ink will maintain its original brilliance, as it will not come in contact with the brushing wheel. Brushed metals finishes for both stainless steel and aluminum can be linear or oscillating (overlapping).
Brushed finishes are often used in automotive, jewelry & watches and electrical applications, and brushed finishes can enhance the aesthetic properties of stainless steel components. Brushed finishes distort the light reflection pattern on a part, and in turn can heighten visual contrast, increasing the perceived value of the part to which it is affixed.
According to the type of different lines after brushed finish, the brush finish can be divided into: straight drawing, chaotic drawing, corrugation, and swirling.
Stainless Steel Brushed
Due to the brushed finish can reflect the texture of metal materials, it has been favored by more and more users, and becoming more and more popular.
Brushed is a method which improve the surface finish of workpiece by making cloth reciprocate, and rub back and forth on the surface of the workpiece. Generally, the texture of the surface is linear. The brushed finish can improve the surface quality and hide minor scratches on the surface.
The brushed finish can make the metal surface obtain a non-mirror-like metallic luster, and the brush finish can also eliminate the fine defects on the metal surface.
