Abrasive polishing applications

Polishing is often used to enhance the appearance of an item, prevent contamination of components, remove oxidation, create a reflective surface, or prevent corrosion. Polishing stainless steel can also increase the sanitary benefits of it.

The abrasive process

The condition of the material at hand determines what type of abrasive will be applied. The first stage, if the material is unfinished, starts with a rough abrasive (60 or 80 grit) and each subsequent stage uses a finer abrasive, such as 120, 180, 240, 320, 400 and higher grit abrasives, until the desired finish is achieved. The rough (i.e. large grit) passes remove imperfections within the metal surface like pits, nicks, lines and scratches. The finer abrasives leave progressively finer lines that are not visible to the naked eye
