formability to ease of welding. Similarly, stainless steels offer a wide range of surface finishes which can assist the architect in achieving the aesthetically pleasing appearance he is looking for. Surface finishes range from a plain matte through soft polishing through textured patterns and colours right up to highly polished mirror finishes. Similarly, stainless steels offer a wide range of surface finishes which can assist the architect in achieving the aesthetically pleasing appearance he is looking for. Surface finishes range from a plain matte through soft polishing through textured patterns and colours right up to highly polished mirror finishes. Stainless steel plate or bar stock is only available in a mill finish. Polished Stainless Steel Textures No 3 Finish is a intermediate polished finish with an Ra of µm ( µin). This finish is generally used where a semifinished polish surface is required and may receive additional polishing. No 4 & 4A Finishes are general. A semi-dull finish with a uniform grain generally applied to the supplied surface of the mill finish stainless steel. No pre-grinding is involved, so only the smoother mill finishes such as 2A or 2B can be used. This finish is obtained using a bristle type brush or fine abrasives.
CASTI Handbook of Stainless Steels. This is the only up-to-date () reference book that covers both stainless steels and nickel alloys. Written by 30 authors and peer reviewers with over years of combined industrial experience, this CASTI handbook provides the latest stainless steels and nickel alloys information in a practical and comprehensive manner. The corrosion resistance of the stainless steel is affected by the roughness of the surface after polishing, with a marked decrease of the corrosion resistance as the surface roughness increases above a R a value of about micrometres. This roughly corresponds to the surface produced by grinding with grit abrasives.

The importance of surface finish in determining the corrosion resistance of the stainless steel surface cannot be overemphasised. A rough surface finish can effectively lower the corrosion resistance to that of a lower grade of stainless steel. The European standards for stainless steels have attempted to define the most common surface finishes.
