IN – Satin Stainless Steel
A form of brushed metal achieved by sanding the stainless steel in one direction using a grit belt, followed by a softening and buffing process that creates a less shiny but glossy look.
IP – Polished Stainless Steel
A form of brushed metal but different from the satin brushing. The polished version has a finer brushing and longer buffing process in manufacturing whereby a highly reflective surface, like a mirror is created.
Dampened Cotton/Microfibre cloth. A non-abrasive stainless steel cleaner without bleach may be used but careshould be taken to follow the lines of the stainless steel.
Regardless of grade, cleaning is paramount, especially in coastal areas. Surface contamination and deposits are key factors which may lead to drastically reduced life. All grades and finishes of stainless steel may in fact satin, discolour or tea stain if not maintained of grime, and kept free of contaminants & other environmental deposits such as minute particles of iron or rust from other products or nearby locations of atmospheric conditions such as salt deposits.
