About Hermes Steel
What is NO.4 Stainless Steel?
304 #4 stainless steel sheet is an excellent candidate for most processing techniques as well as both indoor and outdoor applications. This non-magnetic product features a #4 brushed finish with directional grain and comes with a removable PVC protective film on one side making it ideal for cosmetic applications such as backsplashes. 304 #4 stainless steel is a high strength material with excellent corrosion resistance, so it is also commonly used in aerospace structures, pressure vessels, architectural designs, and food and beverage industrial equipment. ASTM A240 is the standard specification for chromium and chromium-nickel stainless steel plate, sheet, and strip for pressure vessels and for general applications.
Material Options For Brushed Finish Stainless Steel Sheet
304 Stainless Steel Sheet: Grade 304 is the most widely used type of stainless steel sheet metal that we usually find in various commercial applications, 304 stainless steel sheet has resistance to rust and corrosion, and it’s a fire-proof and heat-resistance material as it comes with a high melting point, and the surface finished with mirror finish is easy to clean and requires low maintenance. 304 stainless steel with a polished surface is a versatile type of material be widely used for bathroom ceilings, walls, kitchen sinks, backsplashes, food equipment, and so on.
316L Stainless Steel Sheet: For further enhancing the ability to resist corrosion and oxidation, stainless steel of grade 316L is the most ideal one, and it’s regarded as marine grade stainless steel. The letter “L” means LOW CONTENT of carbon, which is lower than 0.03%, which has the better properties of easy welding and resistance to rust and corrosion. 316 stainless steel sheet with BA, 2B finish is generally used for the facade, and other indoor and outdoor decorative applications, tools and facilities for food, and any application that highly require resistance.

Applications For Brushed Metal Sheet With Hairline Texture
When using stainless steel for applications that easily get stained and dirty on the surface, particularly that of frequently being touched by people in public areas such as elevators, kitchens, restaurants, and so on, a brushed hairline finish would be the perfect type for these purposes. Unlike the mirror stainless steel sheet or other metals without finish, the dense hairline grains on the surface look beautiful and provide a milder tone, and its texture can hide scratches, fingerprints, and other blemishes. Hairline stainless steel sheet is also suitable for the purpose not required a highly reflective effect to brighten the space.
With some beneficial properties such as easy cleaning and low maintenance, it will not keep fingerprints and stains on the surface when touched, so brushed finish stainless steel sheets are more and more popular in applications of kitchen, restroom, and enclosure of refrigerators or washing machine. Additionally, architects and designers like to use stainless steel sheet products with hairline patterns as decorative materials to help achieve their desired effect and enhance their projects with stunning designs. And stainless steel comes with durability and resistance to corrosion and fire, these properties can be the protective factors to ensure users keep their facilities and buildings in tip-top condition after years of use.
Benefits Of Brushed Stainless Steel Sheet:
For architectural applications, there are various different types of stainless steel sheets on the market, it would be better to consider some factors in order to choose a proper type for your specified need. In addition to the basic alloy steel types (304, 316, 201, 430, etc.), another main difference between them is how their surfaces are finished, there are many techniques that can be used for the surface finishes, one of the common types is brushed finish, which is also known as hairline finish. Now let’s keep discovering some benefits that brushed stainless steel sheet comes in.
Luster Of Silk Texture
The surface of brushed stainless steel comes with the numerous hairline pattern that feels like texture of silk. Though the surface doesn’t have less ability of reflecting, but the surface still provides a metallic luster, which leaves a matte and dull seen on it. Such an effect presents a sleek appearance with both stylish and classic touches, and the distinctive style is perfect for decorative purpose.
Hairline stain less steel is easy to clean and maintain, as the matte surface can hide the fingerprints or sweat stains when people touch it. That can help save you much effort and time for cleaning, it’s perfect option for kitchens, bathrooms, and anywhere cleaning is necessary.
One of the major reasons brushed stainless steel is popular is its basic material is tough and durable, its high strength gives it a outstanding resistance to strong impact and wear. And compare with other materials, stainless steel doesn’t need much material being used to form a strong structure, it can always keep its shape in good condition.
Stainless steel is a durable material, which can provide long useful life, and even thin stainless steel won’t deform under great pressure at high and low temperatures, making it one of the best ideal materials for various applications.
Stainless steel with hairline textures is corrosion and rust resistance. The material can withstand rust, water, moisture, saline air, etc. The reason why stainless steel has a strong resistance as it’s a alloying metal that consists of some elements like chromium, which can form a strong resistant layer when it’s oxidized in the air, this layer allows the surface to resist rust and corrosion. In addition to chromium, such an alloy metal also include some other elements to enhance its properties, such as molybdenum, nickel, titanium, and more.
It’s a sustainable option when choosing stainless steel, as it’s a totally recyclable type of material. the scrap of stainless steel can be recycled for reuse once it has lost its original function, In fact, most stainless steel products are made from recycled scrapped material. Unlike some other materials, recycling scrapped stainless steel doesn’t need any harmful chemical to process, and it’s not necessary to add some elements that already existed in the material. So stainless steel is one of the regenerative resources that can avoid the scarcity of resources and protect the environments from being polluted.
