A water ripple stainless steel sheet is a type of metal sheet that is fabricated with a textured surface resembling the ripples that form on the surface of the water. This finish can be created through a variety of rolling or punching techniques by conventional molding, and it provides a visually appealing appearance for applications such as ceilings, building facades, countertops, backsplashes, furniture accents, and other architectural elements.

Water Ripple Types

A large area of bright silver water ripple, with acid resistance, alkali resistance, and high density in polishing makes the whole space transparent and clean while reflecting the depth changes under the light and increasing the feeling of spatial layering.

The most popular water ripples are divided into small ripple, medium ripple, and large ripple depending on the size of the rippling.

Small ripple: the wave height is about 0.15mm-0.25mm

Medium ripple: the wave height is about 0.30mm-0.50mm

Large Ripple: The wave height is more than 0.50mm

Water ripple stainless steel sheet finishes

The most popular water ripple stainless steel sheets at the moment are available in a mirror-polished finish and brushed finish. Each has its own unique benefits that can contribute to the overall look and feel of your projects.

Mirror-polished finish

The mirror-polished finish is defined as a high-gloss finish that is produced by polishing the stainless steel to be a reflective surface.

This type of finish is often used in architectural and decorative applications because it creates a luxurious look.

Brushed finish

The brushed finish is achieved by using abrasive belts to create a very fine grain surface. Hairline and satin are the two most popular brushing types. 

Brushed water ripple sheet panels are a better choice when you need one with less reflectivity, such as when it is used as the building facade and sun reflection is your concern.
