Mechanical polishing is a crucial stage of finishing stainless steel components and fabrications, both during and after the manufacturing process. It is at the core of our service offering and Unique Polishing has built a strong reputation over the last 30 years as the UK market leader.

The process involves smoothing of a metal surface using handheld mechanical tools and abrasives. Mechanical polishing is performed in steps with progressively finer abrasives until a desired smoothness is achieved.

Unique Polishing specialises in achieving any finish specification required from our clients, including sanded, satin polishing (ranging from 3.2ra to 0.1ra) and mirror polishing (0.05 to 0.01). All finishes are fully inspected using our many calibrated RA surface roughness machines with a certificate of conformity (digital or print).

Our team of highly trained metal polishing experts ensure that only the highest quality services are delivered, with each team member fully competent in all aspects of stainless steel polishing, Unique Polishing services a range of industries and applications for mechanical polishing including:
