Mirrorpolished stainless steel of the highest quality

mirrorINOX is your ideal and competent partner for all polished stainless steel surfaces of the highest quality, including high-gloss polished, mirror-polished and various others.

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 inox surfaces in several quality levels in order to create more transparency for the customer when inquiring and more clarity when ordering the material:

How do we mirrorpolish stainless steel plates?

During mechanical polishing, the upper layer of the inox surface is removed by our polishing lines and with the help of polishing agents, a flat, smooth and as flawless as possible finish is created. Only after that does the actual mirror polishing take place.

Different results (qualities) of stainless steel mirror finish can be achieved depending on:

  • The base material,
  • The base surface finish,
  • Various machine parameters and processes

Measurable values such as roughness and gloss plus the visual appearance and approval serve as the basis for verification.

Mirrorpolished stainless steel: applications for yachts, architecture and more

The high-quality products manufactured by mirrorINOX are in great demand, especially with the design applications in the field of:

  • Architecture: façades, indoor and outdoor walls, roofing sheets, elevators
  • Yacht: boat fittings, hardware and accessories
  • Shopfitting: reception desks, escalators, etc.
  • Lighting and furniture construction

Whether we mirror polish inox 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 the most famous artists, however they like to remain anonymous.

mirrorINOX: mirror-polished stainless steel and more

mirrorINOX not only offers you mirror-polished stainless steel (sheets and plates in various lengths, widths and thicknesses – 0.5 mm, 1 mm, 2 mm, 3 mm, or even 5 and 10mm – or custom-made), but also a vast range of products and services in the field of stainless steel surface finishing.

With many years of expertise and experience, mirrorINOX is the manufacturer of the world's largest range of different quality levels, such as our stainless steel mirror finishes Mirror No.7, Super Mirror No.8, Marine Mirror No.9 and Perfect Mirror No.10®.

For such products, mirrorINOX uses stainless steel grades:

  • AISI 304/304L
  • AISI 316/316L
  • AISI 316Ti
  • AISI 318

Due to its unique expertise, mirrorINOX is able to manufacture custom stainless steel plates in dimensions or lengths, widths or thicknesses that cannot be found anywhere else.

The following dimensions are possible:


max. 4,000 mm
max. 16,000 mm
max. 100 mm

A particularly outstanding example is the "Rock" art project, for which inox metal sheets in dimensions up to 14,937 x 3,347 x 16.0 mm and up to a weight of 6,415 kg per single sheet were polished to Perfect Mirror No.10® quality. Other stainless steel surface treatments of the highest qualities are also performed by mirrorINOX: grit polishing, vibration polishing, bead blasting, fluid forming, PVD/TiN and nanoINOX®-coating.

Mirror-polished stainless steel: properties and advantages

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

Such properties play a major role especially in applications like container- and silo-manufacturing, mechanical engineering, food and medical technology, where adhesion to the inox surfaces has to be avoided by using material that is as smooth as possible.

Other customers request a certain reflectivity from the metal finish, for example in the lighting industry.

Another increasingly popular use of mirror-polished stainless steel sheets is found in architecture, shopfitting, yacht and shipbuilding, where the focus is very strongly on an optically first-class result in terms of the visual quality of the stainless steel sheets.

In addition to a flawless appearance, more advantages of a mirror finish 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 train stations, airports and others, mirror-finish stainless steel plates are unbreakable, fireproof and vandal-proof.
