Vibration finish / non-directional polishing of stainless steel sheets

Vibration finish or non-directional polishing is known in the market by various names, e.g. vibration polishing, circular polishing, circular brushing, Vortex or Satinato Non Direzionale and, due to its special visual appearance, the finish is even poetically referred to as "Angel Hair".

At mirrorINOX, this particular product range is called VIBES.

The process of vibration finishing creates a non-directional, homogeneous and matt surface. Aside from its visual attractiveness, an additional advantage of this finish is that fingerprints or small scratches are not visible on the vibration polished stainless steel surface.

To sum up its properties, vibration polished stainless steel surface is characterised by:

  • low roughness values (Ra),
  • attractive, matt and with patina-style appearance,
  • high resistance to minor surface damage,
  • can be cut and installed non-directional.

Applications of vibrated polished stainless steel sheets

Vibration polished sheets and plates are often used in areas where frequent contact with the surface is present, for example in:

  • kitchens and catering (worktops, stainless steel credenzas and sinks, equipment and accessories, cladding for built-in appliances),
  • bathrooms (Washbasins),
  • construction of appliances for the food industry,
  • construction of appliances for the pharmaceutical industry,
  • container and vessel construction,
  • architecture (façades, interior cladding, elevator, etc.),
  • and others.

At mirrorINOX, vibration polished sheets and plates can be produced also in combination with a wide range of colours. When applying colour to the vibration polished surfaces, we use our PVD/TiN and nanoINOX® AFP/ETC coating processes.

Any variation of vibration finish can be additionally coated as well with our CLEAR nanoINOX® AFP/ETC coating which adds an additional, transparent and protective layer that makes the surface more repellent of pollution and much easier to clean. Such properties are not only beneficial in public, highly frequented locations and areas where direct contact to the surface is possible, but also on façades and other applications where cleaning requires efforts and costs.
