"BA surface finish"
I simply need to know what the BA stands for in AISI 304 or 316 surface finish. Just the names of the processes, please. For ex. Annealed, skin passed etc.Tommi Carlson

BA refers to Bright Annealed. A bright annealed finish is a mirror-like appearance produced by cold rolling, then annealing in a controlled atmosphere furnace. The final appearance is developed by a single light skin pass through a cold mill over highly polished rolls, but is also dependent on additional millwork, such as grinding the surface at an intermediate gauge. A bright annealed finish is often specified for architectual applications or where highly reflective surface is desired on the as-fabricated part.
I hope this is useful.
