Stainless steel mirror polished and high gloss polished


Overview "Dimensions of mirrorpolished stainless steel sheets"

Mirror-polished stainless steel / High-gloss polished stainless steel

When it comes to high-gloss or mirror-polished stainless steel surfaces, mirrorINOX offers traditional and new, pioneering solutions for applications in architecture, yacht- and shipbuilding, for the automotive and electrical industry, medical technologies, container- and silo-manufacturers, machinery and engineering, aerospace and many more.

Even for the most demanding art projects, mirrorINOX`s polished quality is selected by the artists and designers.

What is mirror polished stainless steel used for?

In principle, we differentiate between technical applications, which require for instance the lowest possible roughness (Ra value) of the requested surfaces.

Such properties play a major role especially in the container- and silo-manufacturing, mechanical engineering, food and medical technology, where adhesion to the stainless steel surfaces has to be avoided by using material that bears a maximum of smoothness.

Other customers request certain reflectivity from the metal finish, for example in the lighting industry. A mirror finish best reflects their demands.

Another more and more popular use of the mirror-polished stainless steel sheets is found in architecture, shop-fitting, ship- and yacht-building, where the focus is very strongly set on an optically first-class result in terms of the visual quality of the stainless steel sheets.

Adding to its flawless appearance, more advantages are the low weight ratio compared to glass mirrors, the very good workability and, immensely important when used in public buildings or other highly frequented locations such as trains stations, airports and others, the properties of break-proof, fireproof and vandalism-proof protection.

Mirror-polished stainless steel of the highest quality

mirrorINOX is your ideal and competent partner for all polished stainless steel surfaces of the highest quality: High-gloss polished, mirror-polished and various other levels of surface treatment.

However, since the very common terms "high gloss polished" or "mirror polished" often do not provide a very clear definition of the product, mirrorINOX defines its self-produced and distributed mirror-polished surfaces in several quality levels such as Mirror No. 7, Super Mirror No. 8, Marine Mirror No 9.  and Perfect Mirror No. 10®, in order to create more transparency for the customer when inquiring and more clarity when ordering the material. That way, you choose your preferred mirror finish to your liking.

What is the best way to polish stainless steel? Here is how we go about it

During the mechanical polishing, the surface is removed by our polishing lines and the help of polishing agents to create a finish as flat, smooth and flawless as possible. Only after that, the actual mirror polishing takes place.

Depending on the base material, base surface finish, various machine parameters and processes, different results (qualities) can be achieved. The measurable values such as roughness and gloss plus the visual impression and approval serve as the base of control.

Mirror polished stainless steel: Applications for yachts and more

Especially with the design applications in the field of architecture, yacht, shopfitting, lighting and furniture construction, the high quality products manufactured by mirrorINOX are in great demand.

Whether we polish stainless steel for yachts or shops: You can always expect the highest quality from us. Even in the extremely quality-sensitive sector of art, our products are well known and highly recognized by most of the famous artists, however they like to remain anonymous. Mirror-polishing stainless steel is our lifeblood and we treat it as such, aiming to achieve the perfect level of mirror finish.
