Pattern Polished Finishes are mechanically applied surface treatments that create distinct patterns and textures in the surface of stainless steel sheets. Designed for use in architectural and other applications, a variety of visual effects can be created. Pattern Polished Finishes can be applied to wall panels, elevator cabs, coping and trim. Since Pattern Polished Finishes have no coatings to deteriorate, they will last indefinitely with little maintenance. Contrarian’s Pattern Polished Finishes are produced under a partnership with Main Steel Polishing Company.
The long-term performance of Pattern Polished Finishes is dependent on proper grade selection. In most environments, Type 304 will be sufficient to prevent corrosion. In normal seacoast applications, Type 316 should be specified. If parts are to be welded, the low carbon versions of these grades (304L/316L) should be used. (Please refer to our Product Data Sheets for highlights of chemical analyses and properties for specific substrates and finishes.) Severe environments such as seacoast atmospheres subjected to salt water spray and chemical plants will require different alloys, subject to application review.

.036" - .250" thicknesses in widths up to 48" are available. Some finishes can be produced up to 60" wide. In addition, cut lengths up to 120" are available.
Since stainless steel is dimensionally stable up to 2000°F, Pattern Polished Finishes provide an added measure of protection in the event of a fire.
