How To Polish Stainless Steel
Stainless steel polish? We're asked that a lot. It definately is not like polishing your car's paint job.
There are techniques for just sprucing up your stainless steel.
However, if you want your stainless steel trim to truly 'stand out' in the crowd, then you will want to have your stainless steel polishing reflect like polished chrome.
Polishing stainless steel is a craft that takes years of experience to master. The cast stainless steel, if looked at with high magnification, would look like a landscape of ridges and valleys and occassionally a few meteor craters. The craftsman must know how to turn this landscape into a perfect glacier lake reflecting the blue sunshining sky.
Or to put it plain, it cannot just be buffed or sanded carelessly.
Finishing Touch first uses a process which makes the stainless steel look like chrome. This will continue once it has been polished.
Any peaks and valleys in the metal reflect light in infinite directions. This gives the metal the dull or matte finish. Polished metal should reflect light directly back to its source or exactly as the contour shape of the metal dictates. This is mirror reflection.
Finishing Touch's goal is that your investment is permanent. Once the metal has been polished the only upkeep left is to wipe it off. Your investment's benefits will continue as long as the metal is treated with respect.
