Before & After
Metal Polishing & Buffing
The Metal Finishes Guide defines metal polishing as a process that enhances the surface of a part by means of metal removal. Metal polishing is done through the use of abrasives, such as wheels, belts and abrasive media to ensure the best possible results.
In most cases bead blasting refers to the projection of media in the form of a bead or sphere against a substrate such as stainless steel, aluminum or any material that requires a surface conditioned via blasting. All of our capabilities can be applied to just about all materials, including but not limited to stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, and plastics.
