There are several surface treatments for the sink, and what is the difference. China Stainless Steel Sink Company & Ningbo Afa Kitchen & Bathroom Co., Ltd. elaborated that stainless steel sink has 5 surface treatment methods.


1.Pearl face

Some people also call pearl silver surface, matte surface, pearl matte surface and so on. It is made of chemical electrolyte for surface treatment (white is almost the same as electroplating). This kind of surface treatment has the simplest process, small technical content and low production cost in all production. The price of manufactured products is also lower. At present, more than 90% of the nearly 2,000 manufacturers in the country use this process for production. Many first-tier brands also use this process to seize the low-end market. However, the biggest defect of this kind of surface is that it is not scratch resistant, the surface is easy to scratch, and the coating will peel off seriously. So many large-scale enterprises gradually replaced this process with other processes.



2.Frosted surface

Also called pearl sand surface. It uses small sand particles to hit the surface of the water tank uniformly and at high speed, so that the surface of the water tank is uniformly formed into a small number of small grooves (difficult to see by human eyes), and the hardness of the surface of the water tank is increased, which also increases its Scratch resistance. The principle is equivalent to shot peening in machining. This treatment generally requires that the wall thickness of the board should not be too thin. Generally, there are more water tanks for overall stretching.



3.Brushed surface

Also called mercerized surface. It is to use a drawing equipment to repeatedly draw on the surface of the water tank (equivalent to the grinding machine processing in mechanical processing). Make its surface a fine silk trace, and the surface is very smooth. Feel and visually have a strong peace of mind. Because it is directly drawn on the surface of the sink, the requirements for the plate are extremely high. The drawing of domestic boards sometimes has fine particles on the surface and affects the appearance. Therefore, most of the brushed boards are imported boards.



4.Embossed surface

It is to press a regular pattern on the surface of the water tank or directly use embossed sheet to press (equivalent to the pattern steel plate used on the pedestrian bridge on the road), and then use pearl surface treatment for surface treatment. The visual effect of the embossed surface is also good, but the long-term oil fume in the kitchen will accumulate in the pattern and be difficult to clean.



5.Mirror surface

It is to repeatedly polish the surface of the sink to make its surface look like a mirror. This treatment is not applicable to ordinary families. It is easy to form scratches during use.
