304 Stainless Steel type of finish



2004

I would like to know what a #2 finish on 304 stainless steel looks like or what grit number it is.

First of all, a description of a 2B finish is not possible. You must see the surface appearance and that is determined by the metal making process. No grit can match that finish. Meaning, that the mill determines the finish or surface appearance of the metal by the number of rolls, passes, and/or pressure that is applied to the metal in the rolling process. It is possible to get close to the finish via a similar process using a hand held power buffer and a wheel that will produce the same gain appearance.
