How to Produce a Mirror Finish Stainless Steel Tube?

    Mirror Finish Stainless Steel Tube is one of the highest polish levels for stainless steel pipe, the surface can be achieved with a mirror effect, so mirror finish stainless steel pipe is also known as No.8 finish stainless steel pipe, Mirror Finish Stainless Steel Pipe is one of the highest polish levels for stainless steel pipe, the surface can be achieved with a mirror effect, so mirror finish stainless steel pipe is also known as No.8 finish stainless steel pipe.

    What is Mirror Finish Stainless Steel Tube?

    Mirror finish is one of the highest polish levels for stainless steel pipe, the surface can be achieved with a mirror effect, so mirror finish stainless steel pipe is also known as No.8 finish stainless steel pipe.

    Mirror Finish Stainless Steel Pipes

    Stainless Steel Mirror Finish Pipe Features

    • Very good mirror-properties
    • Very good reflectivity
    • None polish marks visible
    • Good mechanical and optical flatness

    How to Produce Stainless Steel Pipes to Mirror Finish?


    The process of sanding stainless steel pipe to a mirror finish is very similar to that of polishing other metals. The grade of sand wheel that is used depends on the original finish of the metal. For normal mill-finished stainless, 120 grit is usually best. For other types of stainless, you can use 240, 320, 400, 800, or higher grit sand wheel.
    Once the pipe has reached the desired level of shine, it is time to apply the polishing compound. You will need a large amount of this compound. For localized spots, you can use a coarser grit. Then, you can move to higher grits to make the surface mirror-like.


    Polishing stainless steel pipe to a mirror finish is a process used to achieve a glossy, reflective surface. The goal is to remove surface imperfections, including fine wear marks, and produce a mirror-like finish. Polishing stainless steel produces an even surface and eliminates crevices, making cleaning much easier.

    The most important aspect of producing NO.8 mirror stainless steel pipes is  polishing and raw materials. The selection of raw materials determines the quality of the product, and the polishing technology and experience determine whether the product can ultimately achieve the mirror effect. The professional stainless steel pipe manufacturer ZY stainless steel with more than 20 years of experience in producing mirror stainless steel pipes.

    Packaging and Protect

    In addition to first-class raw materials and good polishing, there is also a very important for packaging and protect of pipes. Mirror stainless steel pipes must to separate placement areas and independent packaging, and cannot be packaged like ordinary stainless steel pipes. Instead, each pipe needs to be specially separated and packaged. After double packing bag, then slowly and slightly put in the crates to avoid scratches caused by friction between pipes. Because any slight carelessness can cause damage to the surface of the tube. ZY stainless steel has strict requirements in these aspects, and it is precisely these high requirements and strict standards that create ZY high quality.
