GRAIN FINISHES

Most common specs/finishes:  #3, #4, #6 Satin finishes; Grits 180 or 240; 20RA-40RA; Random Orbital or Non-Directional Grain finishes are used in a wide variety of applications, with the type of grain pattern selected to meet the requirements of a given project.  A #6 satin long grain (hairline) finish receives additional polishing to give the appearance that the grain runs continuously along the entire length of the surface. In addition, we can create a very fine, non-directional satin (angel hair) pattern.

Learn more about our grain finishes.

MIRROR FINISHES

Most common finishes:  #7 Pre-buff, #8, High Polish Super 8

We offer metalwork polishing for all of our metal types including #4 satin metal finishing, an all-purpose, polished finish that gives the metal a refined and smooth appearance, which helps to highlight all architectural elements like glass. We are also specialists in #8 mirror, 8 super mirror and High Polish Super 8 finishing used for a highly reflective, mirror appearance and a surface much like that of a mirror, that is virtually free of grit lines. The finish is polished directionally and easily blended for fabrication. A true Super 8 is a step above the traditional #8 mirror finish.  This superior mirror finish is the cleanest, truest mirror, but it is also used the least often as it is extremely difficult to match, maintain and repair.  A #7 or Pre-buff finish is a clouded or hazy mirror finish.  The grain is purposely left in the material and it is used for ornamental applications that do not require the full mirror finish, or applications that require a smooth surface preparation for coating.
