Vibration Finish Stainless Steel

Vibration is one type of stainless steel brushed finish. Vibration finish stainless steel has a soft gloss and random texture, which can reduce the cold texture of metals. If used in space decoration, it creates a luxurious and elegant atmosphere.

Vibration has a wide range of applications, and its surface finish is second only to the hairline finish. It is the most prevalent metal finish in various industrial decorations, such as escalators, tunneling, mechanical equipment, and kitchen cabinet panels.

You can purchase vibration finish stainless steel from metal manufacturers or metalworking. TOPSON is a global metalworking company that can provide quality vibration metal finish, including stainless steel, aluminum, steel, and copper.

Why Choose TOPSON for Vibration Finishing

As a commonly used finish for metal architectural materials, grind marks of vibration stainless steel are delicate, non-directional, irregular, and arch-like.

At TOPSON, we have a strict quality control system. Our strength in vibration finish is maintaining the highest quality regardless of material, size, shape, or combination. For example, there may be differences between single and across multiple panels when using a vibration finish over a large area. We are able to achieve a consistent vibration finish across even large metal panels.

Vibration can be combined with other surface finishes such as colored stainless steel, anodizing aluminum, and sulfurization. We not only provide regular stainless steel surface, also support bespoke metal finish to meet individual project specifications.

Combinations with Other Metal Finishes

Stainless steel is highly resistant to corrosion and comparatively resistant to rust, so that it can be used in interior and exterior settings with a polished finish. Compared to vibration 2B stainless steel, vibration with BA or mirror stainless steel will produce a more pronounced shine.

sulfurization+vibration stainless steel

Vibration + Sulfurization

This finish involves achieving a vibration finish on copper, bronze, or brass, followed by sulfurization and a clear coating. The random abrasion of vibration polishing combined with the uneven vulcanization effect creates a richer, more detailed finish. Applying it to the ancient architectural components can enhance the historical sense of the building.

colored vibration stainless steel

Vibration + Colored Stainless

Our colored stainless steel finish is achieved with PVD or LIC technology. Unlike paint, it can be combined with the distinctively metallic grind marks of vibration to significant effect, revealing various beautiful colors besides the base material. The colored vibration stainless steel plates have excellent weather and corrosion resistance, suitable for high-traffic areas.

Vibration + Anodized Aluminum

Vibration + Anodized Aluminum

Combining the uniformity of anodizing aluminium with the reflectivity of vibration finish will result in an elegant and tranquil shine. It enhances properties and aesthetics. Besides silver, we can achieve stain colors and black by working with secondary electrolytic coloring.

Vibration Finish FAQs

Vibration, known as “Angel Hair”, is a slap-up decorative metal finish with non-directional and permanent grind marks. From a distance, the vibration finish has circles of swirling grind marks. While from a closer look, it is a tangle of grain.

Different from the hairline finish, vibration will create a random atmosphere. If used in the interior elevator cladding, it can reduce the discomfort caused by claustrophobic spaces. This is why vibration finish are so widely used in interior cladding.

The vibration finish has a matte and fine surface finish. Due to its permanent grind marks, vibration can hide extra scratches significantly, making it ideal for high-contact areas.

As a metal finish, using vibration for indoor decorations will create an elegant and luxurious atmosphere. It also has higher reflectivity that can light the whole space by reflecting rays. Therefore, vibration finish plates are the best choice for subway stations.

Another advantage of vibration is anti-fingerprint.

Metal has better durability, fireproofing, and corrosion resistance than wood or glass material. As a result, metal finishes are increasingly used in architectural aesthetics. As the simplest metal finish, vibration is commonly used on plates, shaped steel and pipes, as well as welded products.

Vibration is a very simple technology, the same as the hairline finish. Its surface finish depends on processing materials and polishing methods.

4 steps to make a vibration:

  1. 1. Place the metal plate on the machine and adjust its angle to parallel the conveyor.
  2. 2. Flatten the plate to ensure that the plate surface is flat and arch-free.
  3. 3. Adjust the grinding head fit to the metal material, and start the equipment for grinding. It will leave random grind marks on the surface after irregularly spinning.
  4. 4. After grinding, the excess iron filings need to be cleaned to restore the original luster of the metal.

Stainless Steel:
Stainless steel requires little repair, but daily touch will leave fingerprints and grease on its surface. TOPSON recommends using Invisible Glass Detergent to clean and Microfiber Cloth to wipe the surface for daily cleaning of vibration stainless steel.

Dawn® and Sprayway® brand glass cleaners may be used to clean stainless steel routinely. If your stainless steel is carelessly tea-staining, Krud Kutter® cleaner can help you.

Brightness and smoothness can affect the aesthetic. You can use a soft cloth dipped in ordinary household white vinegar to maintain it with occasional polishing. Unique polishing product, like Sprayway® or 3M®, is also a good option to regain the brightness of stainless steel.

Copper:
Copper is one of the most popular decorative materials. The reason copper with corrosion resistance is the patina developed on its surface. Patina is the main factor affecting its color, so you must choose cleaners correctly to avoid damage during cleaning.

Wright’s® Copper Cream is gentle and non-abrasive. Its solid protective performance keeps your copper beautiful for years to come.

Flitz® Brass & Copper Tarnish Remover adopts non-flammable formula, safer than traditional acid-based cleaners. Just spray and rinse to quickly restore a brilliant shine without rubbing.

Aluminum:
Aluminum is more easily oxidized than iron but is often used for decoration. Why? The reason is that aluminum products will form a layer of aluminum oxide on the surface to avoid further corrosion. *Can not use acidic or alkaline cleaners. If do that, you will destroy its oxide and lose its protection.

In daily maintenance, mild soap solution is one of the best choices to clean aluminum without damaging the finish. You also can use commercial aluminum cleaners to maintain the materials’ sheen.
Mothers® Mag & Aluminum Polish is a paste that adds a protective coating to aluminum surfaces. You can use it by hand or with a microfiber cloth.

Chemical Guys® Heavy Metal Polish can remove light rust stains from aluminum surfaces. It is suitable to restore aluminum’s sheen.

3D® Superior Metal Polish is one of the best cleaners to remove tough or heavy-duty dirt with little effort. It can restore shine even after long-term corrosion.

A brushing machine is common equipment in vibration finish. It is employed in polishing, edge radiused, and deburring. Traditionally, a wire brush is a common tool for brushing machines. With the development of technology, nylon abrasive filament (NAF) brushes replace wire brushes as the most popular tools. But many manufacturers still use wire brushes.

Within vibration finishing, mechanical operators can adjust the height or size of the brush to control the roughness of grind marks. Applications of the brushing machine below the following:

*Brushing
*Cleaning
*Deburring
*Derusting
*Polishing

It suits for processing accessories and large metal materials, such as plates, tubes, shaped steel, and welded products.

The large distinction between tumble finishing and vibration finish is the grinding mechanism. A brushing machine creates the vibration—the wire brush rotary grind on the metal surface. And then form fine and non-directional grind marks.

The tumble finishing is designed to simulate the motion of a rock rolling down a hill. Place the parts in a barrel with water and compound. Rotate the barrel to promote the parts roll, then result in friction. This method can achieve the effect of deburring. Operators can shorten the processing cycle by adjusting the number of media.

Compared with tumble finishing, vibration finish has a more straightforward craft and is more economical.
