Surface Finishes

Surface Finish can be specified for difference processes and can alter the way the material performs in the following ways:

  • Increase corrosion resistance
  • Helping with adhesion of paint and other coatings
  • Eliminating surface defects
  • Increase chemical resistance
  • Increased conductivity
  • Increased strength and resistance to wear
  • Reducing friction
  • Enhanced aesthetics

The finer the finish, the more expensive and time consuming the process - and therefore care should be taken to select a finish which is correct for your application.
