Achieve a #4 finish on stainless steel.
Use the before-and-after slider to see how 3M abrasives can quickly transform a raw stainless steel part into an attractive piece of decorative steel. The #4 finish is the most common aesthetic finish for stainless steel, and 3M abrasives make it easy and repeatable for operators of every skill level.
In this simple demonstration, a 3M™ Cubitron™ II Cloth Belt 784F was used to remove the welds and set the grain. Next, Scotch-Brite™ Durable Flex Belt created the final finish.
