Material and Finish Options

At Linkwell, our products are available in a number of different finished and materials which can be ordered to suit the application or your specific requirements. The most common and steel used for this application is 304 and 316 whilst finishes can vary depending on the desired look of the product.

Polished Finish

Polishing is usually a multistage process of which the first stage starts with a rough abrasive and at each subsequent stage a finer abrasive is used until the desired finish is achieved. The initial pass removes surface defects like pits, nicks, lines and scratches, whilst the finer abrasives leave very thin lines that are less visible to the naked eye.
Polishing can result in a number of finishes depending on the grit size used during the abrasion process and any additional chemical process applied to the product. A coarse grade polish will leave a brushed finish, a fine grade polish a satin finish and an extra fine polish with additional treatment will produce a mirror finish.

Colour Coated

In addition to the polished finish, Linkwell can offer a colour coating finish on most of its products. Standard Pantone colours or custom colour matching is available upon request and will require further evaluation to ensure the specific colour requirements are achievable.

Choice of Steel

304

Grade 304 is the most versatile and widely used of all stainless steels available on the market and is used in a wider range of products, forms and finishes than any other.
Its chemical composition, mechanical properties and corrosion/oxidation resistance compared with its relatively low cost provide the best all-round performance/performance stainless steel available.
It also has excellent low temperature properties, responds well to hardening by cold working and has excellent forming and welding characteristics.

316

Grade 316 steel is effectively and improved version of Grade 304, with the addition of molybdenum and a slightly higher nickel content. The resultant composition of 316 gives the steel much increased corrosion resistance in many aggressive environments.
Because of its superior corrosion and oxidation resistance, good mechanical properties and its ease of fabrication, 316 steel has applications in many sectors of industry and is idea for demanding outdoor applications. It also has outstanding welding characteristics and post-weld annealing is not required when welding thin sections.
