American Metalcraft Industries provides surface finishing to:
- Improve and protect appearance of metal products
- Alter the smoothness and texture of ferrous/non-ferrous metals such as stainless steel, iron, and aluminum
We specialize in the following methods of surface finishing:
Polishing & Buffing
This method produces a smooth, bright finish on metals.
American Metalcraft Industries can polish any type of metal tubing for industrial or commercial needs.
Glass Bead Blasting
This process removes surface deposits by applying fine glass beads to metal without damaging surfaces.
Sand blasting brings about a bright sheen by removing contaminants and rust on metal surfaces.
American Metal Craft also provides surface finishing in #4 to #7 finishes:
- #4 Architectural Surface Finish
This finish commonly has fine polishing lines that are uniform in appearance. It is produced by polishing the metal with appropriate grit compounds using a belt or wheel.
- #4 Sanitary Surface Finish:
This finish is used primarily for stainless steel in the medical and food industries. It is much finer than an architectural finish produced via abrasives with a belt or wheel followed by a non-woven abrasive belt or pad. This finish is sometimes referred to as a brushed finish. The metal retains some, but not all, of its metallic luster with very fine lines or small scratches all running in the same direction. Common brushed finish metals include stainless steel and nickel.
- #7 Surface Finish:
This finish is a semi-bright finish that will still have some polishing lines, but they will be very minor. This is an economical option when a polished part needs to be shiny but not flawless. Carbon steel and iron are commonly polished to this finish before chrome plating. This finish can be made bright by secondary buffing methods.
