How to protect a brush finished stainless steel against Contaminates
When creating a ‘brush finish’ on stainless steel it is vital that the finished surface has a maximum scratch depth. Otherwise, the stainless steel will be open to corrosive attack.
The coarsest grit to finish should be 180g(A100). If you then want a coarser appearance, use non-woven products in belt or pad form to create the required surface appearance and blend.
How to Achieve Mirror Polished Handrails
The Suhner Tube Polishing machines (UTC9R, ATC7, UTG8R or UTG9R) are capable of taking a weld or marked stainless or aluminium handrail from grinding to mirror polished without the need for any mops or any other type of machine.
To achieve a mirror polished finish, simply follow these steps with the correct belt size for your tool:
1 - 80g to grind the tip of the weld down to the material surface
2 - TZA160 (120g) to get a smooth, even surface
3 - TZA65 (280g)
4 - TZA30 (600g)
5 - Tza16 (1200g)
6 - BSGBFW yellow belt with blue infinity paste applied
Remove swarf as you go and keep the tube reasonably cool.Do not overwork the area you are grinding
