DARK HEAT STAIN ON STAINLESS STEEL



(-----) 2005

WE CURRENTLY HOT HEAD LARGE STAINLESS STEEL FASTENERS. AFTER THE PARTS HAVE COOLED WE GLASS BEAD THEM TO REMOVE THE DARK HEAT STAIN. IS THERE AN ALTERNATIVE AND/OR MORE ECONOMICAL PROCESS TO REMOVING THESE DARK HEAT STAINS?

I am partial and biased on mass finishing systems because it produces better uniformity surface finishes. I'm not sure exactly what media to recommend because you did not provide enough info; however, instead of an abrasive, you might be able to use a burnishing media and brighten the parts instead of dulling them as you are doing now. To do the latter, you need a good chemical compound with the media.
