"Can we buy bright aluminum plate?"



September 12, 2018

Q. We manufacture hydraulic reservoirs from 5052-H32 mill finish aluminum. Our customer wants a "brighter" finish than the standard mill finish. Not mirrored - but their existing reservoirs from another vendor are "brighter".

What are the options for aluminum surface luster, and can we buy sheet stock with this finish -- or is it typically done to the finished weldment? I don't want guys spending 30 minutes polishing every reservoir.
