Line Graining

Superior Surface Finishing for all Types of Metal

Line Graining on Stainless Steel From aluminum and stainless steel to brass and copper, RP Abrasives can finish a wide range of metal surfaces. Our line graining service, also known as stroking, typically involves sanding or etching to create a linear pattern that is often used to remove or reduce scratches, defects, porosity and scale.

With our advanced capabilities and state-of-the-art equipment RP Abrasives has the ability to handle flat stock of any metals up to 8 ½” wide by up to 3” thick with lengths of up to 5’. The result is a “grained” surface finish on the material; this can be done on aluminum, steel, stainless steel, titanium, copper, brass, as well as other more exotic metals. Using various grits or coarseness of sanding belts we can achieve a wide range of grain looks, from a fine semi-polished finish to very coarse lines. This is done to give the appearance of a straight line finish that will in some cases mask imperfections in the base material.

Whether you’re looking to achieve a mirror finish, satin finish or brush finish, RP Abrasives can finish your products to your unique budget and specifications. Contact us today to learn more about our customized finishing solutions.
