Stainless Steel Polished: Bright and enduring

Stainless steel is the best product to use for applications used on a daily basis for several reasons:

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Tenacity
  • Improved aesthetics

A suitable quality and surface finish, along with a good design and regular maintenance will ensure long life and a high resistance to corrosion.

A perfect polished finish is an added value for our customers.

The high reflection polish finish is less susceptible to accommodate air pollutants and is easier to keep clean.
This surface also reflects a clear distinct image.

The surface finish is an important specification and an important consideration in applications where the material requires high resistance to corrosion. The smoothness of the material will depend on the surface finish.

For those applications where appearance is critical then the finish is a design element which should also be considered.
In architecture or other high visibility applications. In consumer products, the polished surface has a strong appeal which means in applications of institutional kitchens, restaurants and hospitals it helps to emphasize the feeling of cleanliness.

In the IRESTAL GROUP we have, on request a different range of POLISHES:

  • 7P - Bright Polish
  • 7EP - Mirror Polish
  • 7ZP - "Z" Polish

All come with a high degree of image clarity with a highly reflective finish. To achieve and obtain a consistent and high quality surface, it is always necessary to specify the surface finish for each of these different polishes.


Type/ Finish Microns (Ra)  Min./Max Average Roughness
7P 0.06 – 0.09 0.0764
7EP 0.04 – 0.06 0.0581
