Optimizing surface finish for stainless steel containers
A “surface finish” describes the roughness of a steel surface that would come into contact with your product during its storage, processing and transportation. It is vital to assess what the most suitable Ra (average roughness) should be for your container: this is determined by your product and its application. Generally, the rougher a surface, the more prone it is to residue, bacteria and also corrosion - very important considerations for most industries. This white paper explores the different techniques and methods of surface finishing, as well as their benefits, and what you need to know about obtaining the ideal Ra for your needs.
