Satin stainless steel sheets with an anti-fingerprint layer are easy to clean and maintain, making them a great choice for high-traffic areas. The most popular frosted surface is No.4, which is widely used for countertops, cabinets, machine panels, elevator cabins, and various architectural decorations.
The production process of satin stainless steel sheets is divided into two types: dry grinding for direct polishing with an abrasive belt on the sheets without adding any abrasive lubricant while wet grinding of spraying abrasive fluids on stainless steel sheets during the processing, either by water or oil. The grain by oil grinding is finer than water grinding but at a higher cost. Generally speaking, the satin finish is one of the base surface treatments of stainless steel decorative sheets with a range of 0.3mm~3mm thickness.
Satin stainless steel sheets are one of the most popular finishes for appliances and architectural applications, including:
Stainless steel is available in a variety of thicknesses and gauges, so it is important to select the right one for your project.
Here are a few tips to help you choose the right thickness and gauge for your project:
In general, if the stainless steel sheets you need are for indoor and outdoor use, the ideal thickness range is 0.5mm to 2.0mm. If the thickness is less than 0.5mm, it’s easy for laborers to cause surface issues as they move and lift throughout the manufacturing process. If the thickness is more than 2.0mm, it will be difficult to use in practical applications. In addition, the color sheets serve primarily a decorative purpose, so there is no need to use a large thickness; this may also help you save money.
When selecting a stainless steel sheet design, be sure to consider the following factors:
The purpose of the sheet, for decoration or fabrication?
The environment it will be used, outdoor or indoor?
How it will be handled, welding, cutting, or bending?
The type of finish desired, glossy, dull, colored, or patterned?
There are many different options available, so take your time to find the perfect one.
