Processing Of Stainless Steel Hairline Surface Treatment

Stainless steel hairline refers to the use of surface treatment to process the surface of stainless steel into a linear texture. The surface is matte. If you look closely, you will find traces of texture on the surface of the stainless steel, but you cannot feel it with your hands.


Under normal circumstances, brushed stainless steel is more wear-resistant than bright stainless steel and looks more advanced.

The three most common effects of hairline stainless steel are straight wire, nylon and snow. These three effects have wide applicability and can be used in various occasions, such as stainless steel walls, elevator stainless steel decorative panels and household appliances panels.

Among them, the linear pattern is a continuous pattern from top to bottom, and a fixed wire drawing machine is usually used to move the stainless steel plate back and forth. The nylon pattern consists of threads of different lengths. Because the nylon wheel is soft, it can be used to grind uneven parts to form a nylon pattern effect. The snow pattern is currently a more popular one. The expression consists of some specifications. It can be processed with sandpaper to achieve the effect.


Stainless steel hairline is the most popular surface treatment process in the stainless steel industry today. Under normal circumstances, the stainless steel surface and the brushing machine cooperate to repair and restore the position of the scratches and welds, and finally achieve the overall hairline effect of the stainless steel surface.

Long hairline, short hairline, coarse sand hairline, fine sand hairline, cross grain hairline, chaotic hairline, primary color hairline, color hairline...

The stainless steel hairline board has 4 kinds of surface textures, such as straight hairline, random hairline (and pattern), hairline corrugation and hairline thread. The hairline process is very special in the application of stainless steel plates, and its processing technology has corresponding requirements. Under normal circumstances, repair and restore with hairline processing equipment to obtain a better final effect, that is, to ensure the best overall hairline effect.


The surface of the cylindrical stainless steel rod is usually only used on a lathe or grinder, and only requires surface treatment. It can be clamped with a special grinding tool, and polished with sandpaper and cloth strips on a lathe; if there are high requirements for processing accuracy and surface roughness, it will be polished on a grinding machine.

If the surface is brushed, usually only the raw board is processed. The surface of the original board is finished or stretched with snowflakes, and then processed into finished products (for example, molds, hardware, etc.). Through conventional processing methods, the finished product can retain the surface effect of the original board. The technical of oil hairline refers to the surface of the stainless steel plate is relatively shiny after oil polishing, and then make a layer hairline. This is a matte and surface treatment. Compared with ordinary hairline, the advantages of oil mill straight line are that the pattern of hairline has clearer texture, higher cleanliness, better gloss, and very good overall effect. It is used for equipment with higher surface requirements such as elevator decoration.
