A brushed finish, also known as a satin finish, is a type of surface treatment applied to stainless steel to create a textured appearance. It is achieved by mechanically brushing the stainless steel surface with fine abrasive materials in a consistent linear pattern.
There are different variations of brushed finishes, including: No. 4 Finish/ Hairline Finish/ Cross Hairline Finish/ Satin Finish
No.4 Stainless Steel Sheet
The No.4 (often referred to as #4 or Satin) Stainless Steel Sheet is a widely-used finish, known for its distinctive brushed appearance. This finish, while sometimes equated with Satin, has its unique characteristics in our context. Designed for areas with high foot traffic or frequent usage, its uniform linear texture offers both aesthetic appeal and functional benefits. With its controlled reflectivity, it can range from a subtle satin sheen to a more pronounced reflective surface, catering to diverse design requirements.Learn More
Hairline Finish Stainless Steel Sheet
The Hairline Stainless Steel Sheet is renowned for its unique wire-like texture, giving it a silky, linear appearance. This finish, often used in architectural and design applications, offers both aesthetic appeal and functional benefits, setting it apart from other stainless steel finishes.Learn More
Black Satin Finish Stainless Steel Sheet
This term is sometimes used interchangeably with a brushed finish. A satin finish has a low luster and a soft, diffused reflection. It provides a surface with fine parallel lines but is generally less reflective than the No. 4 finish.Learn More
Cross Hairline Finish Stainless Steel Sheet
This finish combines two sets of hairline finishes at a 90-degree angle, creating a crosshatch pattern. It offers a distinctive aesthetic and is often used for decorative purposes.Learn More
Copper Hairline Finish Stainless Steel Sheet
It features long, narrow, and fine lines running in the same direction. The lines are typically smoother and more delicate compared to the No. 4 finish, resulting in a subtle, elegant look.Learn More
Brushed finish stainless steel sheets are commonly used in architectural, interior design, and industrial applications. They are favored for their aesthetic appeal, durability, and resistance to corrosion, making them suitable for various environments and applications where both appearance and performance are important.

Brushed stainless steel sheets offer numerous advantages for your projects, including a wide range of color and texture options, enhanced durability, resistance to oxidation, corrosion, and chemicals, low maintenance requirements, and cost-effectiveness.
The meticulous brushing process creates a multitude of parallel lines on the stainless steel surface, resulting in fine grains that enhance the adhesion of subsequent treatments. This improved adhesiveness opens up possibilities for further processing effectiveness, such as PVD coating or painting.
The level of reflectivity in a brushed finish can be controlled to suit specific design requirements, ranging from a subtle satin sheen to a more pronounced reflective surface.
Easy Maintenance & Cleaning
Surface finishing eliminates the roughness of unfinished stainless steel sheets, making it easier to remove rust and dirt. This significantly reduces the time and effort required for cleaning. The surface of brushed sheets requires less frequent cleaning and doesn't necessitate the use of strong cleaning agents or chemicals that can potentially damage the surface.
Stainless steel exhibits excellent resistance to heat and fire due to the presence of alloying elements like chromium, which enhance its oxidation resistance. This allows brushed sheets to maintain their shape and form even under high temperatures. With this characteristic, it is e particularly suitable for environments such as commercial kitchens and food processing factories.
The brushed finish stainless steel sheet features a multitude of uniform linear patterns on its surface, providing excellent scratch-hiding properties. This makes it an ideal choice for areas with high foot traffic or frequent use where scratches are a concern.
Choosing stainless steel sheets promotes sustainability as they are fully recyclable. Scrap stainless steel can be collected and reused once it has served its original purpose.
