Tube and Pipe Polishing
Bright Polished Stainless Steel Tube and Polished Schedule Pipe is increasingly specified in architectural applications for structural and aesthetic reasons. In conjunction with our tube suppliers we can arrange for tube to be mirror polished, and schedule pipe to be satin polished. Mirror polishing of schedule pipe may be available as circumstances permit, and will be reviewed on request.
Tube is typically buff polished to a 400 or 600 grit satin finish. To enhance the materials cleanliness, corrosion resistance and aesthetics, tubes can be further polished to an UltraBrite or mirror-like finish. Schedule Pipe is typically supplied with a hot rolled and pickled surface finish, which does not suit all applications. We can arrange for these pipes to be satin polished, and depending on the size and quality of the pipe, may be able to be UltraBrite polished.
Only stainless steel is processed, consequently there is no risk of cross metallic contamination.
Saves labour and consumables costs on expensive in-shop mechanical hand polishing, and increases your workshop productivity.
A heavy plastic sleeve is used to protect the material from incidental scratching.
