Satin Finishing Process

There are differing opinions on what a satin finish looks like on stainless steel. To some, satin is the same as a brushed finish. To others, it means a translucent, frosted, “milky” look. Satin finishes can be obtained with metal brushing, or they can be scratched with sandpaper or other abrasive material rather than with a metal brush. A brushing technique results in a long stroke pattern. Sandblasting will provide a randomized look with no discernible pattern. Many satin finishes end with a polishing step to infuse the stainless steel with an elegant shine.
