Mechanical Finish Designations

#1 Finish – Hot rolled, annealed and pickled.

#2D Finish – A uniform, dull silver gray mill finish that is applied to thinner stainless steel coils, the thickness of which has been reduced by cold rolling.

#2B Finish – A bright cold rolled mill finish commonly produced in the same manner as No. 2D, except that the final light cold rolling pass is done using polished rolls.

#3 Finish – A semi-polished surface achieved by finishing with the equivalent of a 80 to 120-grit abrasive. This finish has a pronounced grit line.

#4 Finish – Also called brushed, directional or satin finish. A number 4 finish is characterized by fine polishing grit lines that are uniform and directional in appearance. The final abrasive used in the process is 150 to 220 grit.

#6 Finish – Polished finish achieved with the equivalent of a 240-grit abrasive. Finer grit lines and higher reflectivity than a No. 4 finish.

#7 Finish – Highly reflective surface obtained with the equivalent of a 320-grit abrasive. Minimal grit lines.

#8 Finish or Mirror Finish – Produced by polishing with at least a 320 grit belt or wheel finish. The part is then sisal and color buffed to achieve a mirror-like finish.
